The Scottish SPCA, Scotland’s leading animal welfare charity, is seeking to recruit an Education Officer/Animal Rescue Officer covering the Aberdeenshire area.

The successful applicant will have practical experience of working with animals, a keen interest in animal welfare and excellent customer care skills. You will also need a full UK manual driving licence.
The role will require you to conduct educational duties, and will involve visiting schools, and other community bodies, on a daily basis throughout the school year. Thus part of this job is termed as a “childcare” position, which will require you to join the Disclosure Scotland PVG Scheme.
