A career with animals involves either working hands-on with animals: eg, Veterinary, Animal Nursing, Dog Wardens, Inspectors, Animal Care Assistants, Behaviourists, Animal Handlers, or working in an office based role, for example animal charity management, fundraising, administration, campaigning, etc.
We work closely with many animal charities and businesses, providing recruitment assistance and advice to assist with finding the right candidates for many jobs working with animals. Our team understand what employers are looking for - job seekers who can show they have had relevant training stand a much better chance of interview and job offers than someone who wants to work with animals but hasn't any training nor experience.
