Employment Opportunities

An Exciting Apprenticeship Opportunity has arisen at the Small Breeds Farm Park & Owl Centre.

We are looking for someone enthusiastic and reliable to join our Team as an Apprentice in Animal Care Level 2.

The position is for 12 months working a flexible 5 day week (to include weekends and school holidays) with the possibility of leading to a permanent role.

We are looking for a person who has:

  • A genuine interest in working with birds and animals
  • A willingness to work as part of a team as well as under own initiative
  • An eagerness to engage with the public
  • A good level of fitness and happy to work outdoors
  • 4 GCSE's Grade C or above including Maths and English

Previous experience working with animals and/or birds would be an advantage.

Being situated in a fairly isolated rural environment there is a lack of local public transport, so a means of reliable transport is essential.

All training and assessments will be overseen on site by our in-house, qualified assessor.

If your application is successful, we will contact you to join us for an interview.

Closing Date for applications: 25th September 2017
