Job Description

Kennel Assistant – Temporary position

Tutehill Kennels and Cattery is looking to recruit a Kennel Assistant to undertake a range of tasks relating to animal care, including animal supervision, dog walking, feeding animals and general cleaning duties, for example cleaning kennels and cat pens.

We are looking for an enthusiastic, hardworking and motivated individual to join our dedicated team of staff and help us provide a home from home for the cats and dogs that board with us. Given the nature of our business, a passion and love for animals is a must, and whilst previous experience is an advantage, full training and mentoring will be provided. Our working environment is fast paced, and we are on our feet for much of the day, often outside and in all weathers. As such, a good level of fitness is needed.

We are offering a contract of 15 hours per week, flexing up to 40 hours during our busy periods. The post requires candidates to be available for work between the hours of 7am-6pm Monday to Friday and 7am-5pm on weekends. Extra hours will be available for holiday cover and during our busiest weeks. As a boarding kennel, school holidays and bank holidays are our busiest times of year. Availability to work during all school holidays and bank holidays is a requirement of the position.

The post is temporary, running until the end of September 2024, with the possibility of further work beyond this time.

The wage meets national living wage and is paid monthly.

The place of work is Tutehill Kennels and Cattery on the outskirts of Pica. Owing to the rural location, candidates must have their own transport.

To apply for this role, please send a CV with a covering letter for the attention of Patrick Rogers.
