We currently offer some work experience opportunities to students aged 16 and over. Due to insurance purposes we are unfortunately unable to offer work experience to younger students.
Work experience can be undertaken in Animal Care and Retail only.
If you are interested in work experience please take the following steps:
If you are interested in gaining valuable work experience at one of our retail units please contact Jacqui Kelly.
We welcome students from University who wish to undertake placements with us. Students have a unique opportunity to experience the daily workings of an animal welfare organisation. Please see the options below. (Sadly, we're not able to offer paid placements).
If you are studying a degree related to animal care, which requires a placement year, please do get in touch with us. We will be able to discuss the possibility of spending a year in our Animal Centre, during which you will gain valuable experience in animal care, rehabilitation, health and rehoming.
Our Branch runs many fundraising events throughout the year and welcome events management placement students. We are able to give students a real, hands-on experience from the early planning stages right through to delivery of the event. As we are a small team placement students have the chance to get really stuck in and take responsibilities for events.
Our Branch currently has numerous charity shops and there is the option to join one of them if your studies are in this area.
