Website Dogs Trust
Dogs Trust is the largest dog welfare charity in the UK with a nationwide network of rehoming centres and charity shops. Last year, Dogs Trust centres cared for over 9,000 dogs; we never put a healthy dog down.
In this key role, you will work closely with the Dogs Trust rehoming centre team and the centre Veterinary Surgeon to help provide excellent veterinary care and welfare to our dogs. You will be involved with all aspects of surgery, assisting with consultations, maintaining clinical protocols, monitoring our recovery kennels, and you will also be a point of contact regarding veterinary assistance for the centre team, helping to ensure that protocols are adhered to by providing informal, occasional training to staff. This is an exciting role that will be based across two different Rehoming Centres – Harefield, West London (3-4 days per week) and Lewknor, South Oxfordshire (1-2 days per week). We are flexible around how work is divided across these sites, and this can be discussed further at interview.
To be successful in this role you will be a Registered Veterinary Nurse with an appreciation of handling dogs in accordance with Dogs Trust guidelines, using positive reinforcement techniques. Experience of working in a rehoming/charity establishment would be desirable, but a full induction is provided. You will be able to show empathy and understanding towards both dogs and people and be committed to delivering the highest standards of patient care and customer service. You will also need a full, clean UK driving licence.
