Driver

This role involves driving our animals to, and, or from the local vets for their routine neutering operations. We currently use Vets4Pets in Shirley, 6miles from us in Hampton in Arden, and Damson House in Solihull about 5miles from us. This role frees up our bunny health checker to focus on the medicinal requirements of our bunnies and ensures the rabbits get safely to and from the vets for their essential operations. You will need your own car and as part of our team we will let you know in advance what days the vets have been able to fit us in and ask availability. We are looking for people to just be on our call up team to be available as and when with a "if I'm free I'll help if I can" mantra. Our evts runs tend to be about 09:00 - 09:30 in the morning and flexible in the afternoon from around 15:00 - 18:30.
