The Role

Many agree with us when we say that working with dogs is one of the most joyful and rewarding jobs in the world – and it really is!

The role will require you to display an initiative to always ensure the wellbeing and happiness of every dog in our care, whilst also being able to work effectively as part of a team to uphold our core values.

The role will also involve transporting some of the dogs in our own sign-written van. Some of our dogs are collected in the morning, from their homes in the local area, and returned at the end of each day. This duty will require you to be well organised, efficient, and trustworthy.
