You will be responsible for ensuring that the world knows about ponycon. You’ll liaise mostly with the fundraising group to put the word out about events we have running, but also with treasurer and chair to announce ticket sales and any other announcements we make. You’ll need to write in a manner suitable to the audience so some posts will need to be adjusted depending on where you post them (eg. On the arena you might want to put more focus on events that will appeal to collectors but then on UKofE alter it so the focus is on the G4 stuff) You’ll also need to keep up-to-date with ticket sales for raffles etc and update posts with numbers accordingly (people like to see that their payment has gone through ok and will check the posts to see if their numbers have been added)
Please pm me, pinkkittywinks with your application, you must title your pm with the position that you are applying for. I will accept applications for the next four weeks starting from today 25 November until 24 December.
I want to take this chance to remind you that this hard work, but also extremely rewarding! It is like having an unpaid job as you will have all the responsibility of a job, but no pay! You must be prepared to work hard and pitch in when and where needed.
Love pkw xxxx
