Vermont Compost Company is seeking a personal assistant for its founder and president, Karl Hammer. Karl wants to be more effective in reaching a wider audience, but needs the help of an organized, patient, eager-to-learn assistant to aid in developing and publishing educational content. The ideal candidate will be very organized, a quick study, willing to handle and prioritize the importance of a wide variety of tasks at any given time, and eager to engage with members of the local, regional, and global sustainable food and permaculture communities.
A publisher has wanted Karl to write a book on composting for several years. He has realized that in order to complete the process of writing, organizing, and editing his thoughts into a coherent book while still fulfilling his duties to his business, he needs help.
Duties will include:
Required skills and experience:
o Photography/videography (capture and editing)
o Basic graphic design skills in Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator (or equivalent programs)
o Powerpoint and/or other presentation software
o Adobe Premier or Final Cut
o Posting to YouTube, Instagram, Podcasting, and/or blogging platforms (part of the job will be determining which platforms would best reach the intended audience, lend itself best to Karl’s presentation style, and be most realistic to maintain a presence on).
o Some experience with Mac OS/iOS devices, or a willingness to learn them so as to help Karl with his phone/computer when necessary,
Given that much of your time will be spent with Karl, it is important that you have good chemistry and at least somewhat of a shared sense of humor. It is also important that you are a determined self-starter who is willing to both be pushed and push back to help Karl and yourself be as productive a team as possible.
