The centre also has a small amount of farm livestock. The ideal person would have experience in kennel management and/or livestock management, although this role could provide invaluable experience if you are training to work with animals. Common sense and a love of animals are key attributes. Training will be given. Hours would be split over two days a week to include handover at the beginning and end of cover. There is an element of heavy lifting involved (bales of hay, feed, etc) and this can therefore be a physically demanding role. The College has recently invested in constructing a purpose-built centre – excellent working conditions are available and a good hourly rate paid to the right individual.
