  • To understand and follow our health and safety policy, handbook and all guidance given by Ryan and his team.
  • To aid in the smooth running of our grooming parlour, training (solo & group classes) & our pet food shop.
  • To work consistently and in all weathers all year round in a mainly outdoor environment.
