Steve Byrne GSPCA Manager said “It is with great sadness a number of our team are moving on to new challenges and we will all miss their incredible commitment and hard work and we know the will be back to visit and volunteer once the are settled in their new vocations and from all at the GSPCA we wish them the best of luck.”

“With over 500 animals in our care and 3000 through our doors each year we never know what challenges we will face.”

“Last year we saw a huge influx of reptiles and this year that has continued as well as many small animals and birds in need of care.”

“The full time roles will primarily be on kennels and the cattery but as with all staff members we look for those that can help in all areas including driving our ambulance.”

“Applicants don’t necessarily need experience with animals but good interpersonal skills are essential as every role at the GSPCA we work with the community and public.”

Each pack includes an Information Summary Sheet on Terms and Conditions, Person Specification, Application Form and Job Description.

Please read through the pack and complete the application form.
