ANIMAL CARE ASSISTANT


FULL AND PART TIME POSITIONS AVAILABLE
Salary £7.50 per hour - Meets NMW
DO YOU WANT TO DO A JOB WHICH MAKES A REAL DIFFERENCE?
DO YOU LOVE ANIMALS?
Based in the centre of Derby, the role of Derby & District RSPCA is to provide help and support for animals and their owners in the area. Our work is invaluable to the lives of the many animals that have suffered from cruelty or neglect and we are mainly reliant on the generosity of the public and other funding sources.
Our overall aim is to Rescue, Rehabilitate and Rehome and last year over 900 animals went to their forever home.
This vacancy focuses on animal care, and is an opportunity for a caring, conscientious, resilient and organised individual to become part of our animal care team. However, this means not only feeding and medicating the animals, helping with veterinary visits, but also cleaning and making the accommodation comfortable. It is also a key part of the role to exercise, train and enrich the lives of the animals whilst they stay with us.
Also good people skills are essential as part of our commitment to customer care.
An NVQ level 2 in animal care is preferred, but not essential, as training will be given, and a willingness to study for RSPCA Standard Procedures is required. As part of a rota system, weekend and bank holiday working are necessary.
We are a close-knit but hardworking team, who all share our passion for animals and have high standards, and would welcome someone who shares the same goals to work alongside us.
Derby & District RSPCA is one of the leading animal welfare charities in the area and the successful individuals will have the opportunity to help take the organisation to the next level of welfare delivery for local animals in need.
