Kennel Vacancy

We are recruiting an additional member of Staff at the kennels
This will be a permanent (after probationary period), and is a paid contract (minimum wage applies during probationary period)
 
Flexibility essential
 
BARK requires a person who can help across all shifts as necessary. Hours to be agreed but will include some basic hours plus opportunity for extra hours to cover staff sickness and holiday. Shifts include 8 - 1, 2 - 8, 4 - 8 and 6 - 8, all days of the week including weekends and bank holidays.
 
Experience preferred. Must be over 18. The kennels is not served well during the hours needed by public transport, therefore own transport essential.
 
A genuine love of all animals essential. If you want cute fluffy kittens, puppies, dogs that walk well on lead and small furries that don’t scratch or bite, or are frightened of snakes, bugs or rats this is not the job for you. The job is hard work both physically and mentally, we walk in all weathers and the animals are often far from easy.
