Working as an Animal Care Assistant

Working as an Animal Care Assistant

Niccie Seymour has been working as an Animal Care Assistant with the National Animal Welfare Trust (NAWT) for the past 6 years. In this video, she tells us what the work is like, the tasks that need to be undertaken and her typical hours of work. We hear what qualifications and/or experience are necessary and all about the pros and cons of the job.

To give us something of a flavour of the work, Nicky also shares a case study with us. We hear about Sherman who was brought to NAWT as a puppy and the journey he has gone through to be ready for rehoming.
