CityPups is an established dog care company based in North West London with a fantastic reputation, and we are looking for a dog walker to join our team!
The successful applicant should have previous dog handling experience, must be physically fit, have excellent communication skills, and be honest and trustworthy.
You will be responsible for walking up to 6 dogs at a time, both on and off lead. You will often walk with another walker and their group, meaning you would collectively be responsible for up to 12 dogs- it is therefore essential that you are comfortable dealing with a large group of excited and playful dogs! You must be able to think fast and remain calm in any situation to ensure the safety of all of the dogs at all times. All walks take place on Hampstead Heath. You should also be happy working in any weather as no matter how hard it rains, our dogs have still got to be walked!
All applicants must be eligible to work in this country, and provide good references. All applicants will be police checked.
Although not essential, it would be an advantage if you have a full, clean driving license as you may be required to drive a van occasionally, to transport dogs to and from the Heath.
Hours are currently 4 hourly walks per day, Monday Friday starting at 11am and finishing approximately 4pm. Pay is £10 per walk, so works out at £200 per week.
CityPups is a young but successful company operating within NW1, NW3 and NW8. We are looking to take people on whos lifestyle fits in with the hours we work, and who are looking to work with us for a significant period of time. We will not consider applicants who are looking for holiday or summer work.
As a small company, we rely heavily on our walkers and reliability is absolutely essential. We need you to turn up on time everyday without fail- if you arent 100% sure you can commit to this, please dont apply!
If you are interested in applying for the position, please send a letter and some information about yourself, including your experience with dogs, to us through the Gumtree form.
If we like the sound of you we will invite you to take a walk with one of our current walkers to see how you fit in with our group!
