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.”

“Last year we saw a huge influx of reptiles and with the recent bad weather the start of 2018 has meant an increase in injured and sick wildlife at the GSPCA.”

“Sadly one of our kennel assistants Teresa is moving back to the UK and we will all miss her, hence the full time post which is primarily kennels but as with any role at the GSPCA we can work in any department if the needs arise.”

“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.
