​Millen Farmers Market Opportunity

We’re looking for a Market Manager to join our team! This is a really exciting opportunity to join Millen Farm as your own entrepreneurial business.

The Millen Farm Market Manager entrepreneur will be required to attend every market and be focused on strengthening the connection between Millen Farm, and the local community, through the development of relationships of current stallholders and to grow the markets in line with our core values and principles.

Currently the existing market runs on a Wednesday, this is your opportunity to grow the market in size and multiple days of the week. The markets are temporarily held at the parking area adjacent to the netball courts, however as soon as the construction work has been completed on the Community Hub, the markets will relocate to the precinct next to Millen Farm. The construction is due to be completed by October.

Amongst other things, this will include market operations, stallholder coordination, marketing and promotion, customer relations and market financials. All non-market day hours are flexible and can be worked around the manager’s own schedule. For this reason, the chosen applicant must work well without supervision and have excellent time management skills. The Market Manager will be required to meet with the Millen Farm operations team at a regular monthly meeting.

There is no specific application form, but we would like you to provide the following information in your initial submission to gboyd@millenfarm.org

  • Your resume
  • A brief description about yourself
  • A brief description (no more that A4 page) on why you would like to be the Millen Market Manager and about how you meet the market requirements, including:
    • Capacity to run a small business
    • Interpersonal skills and the ability to work effectively with a range of people and work ethic
    • Empathy and attachment to the broader Samford community

All applicants invited for an interview will be required to do a business plan. Millen Farm offers support with this if required. You can download the Business Plan template here.

Applications close 1st November 2020.

Enquiries: Greg Boyd gboyd@millenfarm.org

Look forward to hearing from you.
