Due to an internal promotion and a staff member seeking to reduce their hours, we can offer a role working in our centre in Floriana. We have had a successful 2017 having in October already surpassed the year total for rehoming of the prior year. A procedural and structural reorganisation has enabled animal care standards to improve and meet the standard of compliance with the ADCH Code of Practice in the UK. We want to continue and develop our processes and animal care to place us in the best position possible for an expected move to a new facility in 2018 or 2019.

This role requires initiative, attention to detail and the ability to follow processes. Animals also eat and poo – so there is still a lot of cleaning involved as well. A manual driving licence (or the ability to provide your own vehicular transport equivalent in use and presentability to our vehicle) is essential. As is the ability to work frequent weekend-days, full working days and public holidays on a regular basis. We can offer either a 4 day (32-hour) or 5 day (40 hour) post which will include at least one weekend day every week. An animal qualification or demonstrable substantial prior experience in animal welfare as a staffer or volunteer, and a fluent command of the English language both in oral and written form (due to the make-up of our staff group as well as our customers), as well as good IT skills, and the physical ability to carry out the duties in a range of weathers, are requirements.
