Animal Care Assistant

IMH Recruitment are currently seeking an Animal Care Assistant to work on behalf of Sheffield City Council.

They need to be comfortable handling dogs, as the job is at the SCC kennels, but apart from that they just need to be able to use basic cleaning equipment e.g. hose, brush, poo picking up devices. If they don’t “get on” with a particular dog then someone else will deal with it, so we aren’t expecting them to handle dogs with which they are not comfortable. They do not need customer skills, as the regular staff will handle the public and any transactions. We don’t need years of experience but having worked with animals of any sort (but especially dogs) is a definite plus.

The person will work shifts, 8am to 1.30pm, or 2pm to 8pm. This might not suit everyone. We plan to allocate an existing shift pattern to the person, which would give 23 hours per week.
