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

“The full time role will primarily be helping with the 42 kennels we have caring for the dogs, but as with all staff members we look for those that can help in all areas including driving our ambulance.”

“From boarding to dogs to the strays, cruelty case dogs to those looking for homes the dogs we care for vary greatly from the smallest to the largest of breeds.

“One of our kennel team is not entirely leaving us but she is off to undertake a new role which has created the full time vacancy.”

“We also have an exciting weekend post to help cover our animal ambulance during the day and help with care of wildlife as well as a great variety of other tasks we all do working for the GSPCA.”

“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.”

“For each of the roles it is very helpful if candidates have a driving licence, but we welcome all applicants, especially those looking to work weekend hours.”

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

Please read through the pack before completing the application form.

Completed application forms to the GSPCA Animal Shelter and must be received by 12pm Friday 11th October 2019.
