Site Co-Ordinator Job Advert


Do you love rabbits and do you want to make a difference to those finding themselves in a rescue? Then this could be the New Year start for you!

If you are wanting to further your career in animal care and management, if you are looking for experience with a well-established rescue who are able to offer you support as you develop and learn as well as 28 days holiday, a modest wage and the opportunity to experience new challenges,  then this could be the job opportunity for you. 

We are looking for someone to run our site. This is a hands on rescue and the work can be quite fast paced, varied, intense and unique so we are looking for people who are compassionate and caring, practical and pragmatic and willing to get stuck in. You need to be able to work in a team as well as an individual making communal, individual and sometimes difficult decisions. 

You need to have a full clean UK driving licence, be willing to train and deal with First Aid instances and any job offer will be dependent on the charity applying for, and receiving back, a clean CRB / DBS check. 

Organisational, basic computer and communication skills are a must as you will be communicating both verbally and via email with the general public, vets and volunteers and regularly keeping records. You must be punctual, have your own transport and be flexible with the hours you work as the requirements of the rescue demand. You must be able to work effectively outside in all weathers and be able to deal with the unexpected. 

Experience working with animals is a must and a minimum of 5 GCSE’s at grade C or above is required, two of which should be in Maths and English; any job offer will be reliant on the receipt of two references.
