We have an exciting opportunity to recruit a part-time Isolation Groom on a maternity cover contract, based at our Strete Farm in Whimple.
Our Isolation Unit works under our Veterinary Department and alongside our donkey welfare teams. Upon arrival at The Donkey Sanctuary, all donkeys and mules spend six weeks in the Isolation Unit to begin their settling-in period. Vaccinations, farriery and worming are updated before they then join the rest of the donkeys and mules. Our ideal applicant will have experience of working with equines, hold a full driving licence and be capable of working unsupervised.
Ideally starting from Thursday 18th December 2014 for a period of up to 9 months, the hours of the contract are 24 hours per week, (Thursday, Friday and Saturday 8am until 4.30pm). However please note that due to the care we provide, we operate a 24/7 service and some flexibility with hours will be required.
Please download our Application Pack for further information. A competitive salary and employment package is offered.
Closing date for completed applications: 12.30pm, Wednesday 15th October 2014.
