Some of you might be aware from Wag! magazine that a brand new Dogs Trust Rehoming Centre is being built in Wymeswold, Leicestershire. The new Dogs Trust Loughborough, as it will be known, is due to open in Spring / Summer 2012. We hope to be able to bring you updates from the centre’s progress soon, but in the meantime we wanted to address a question that’s coming up a lot in our inboxes.
We have already been receiving queries about working at the new centre in both paid and voluntary roles, and it’s lovely to see such enthusiasm out there. Here’s what you need to know:
- Vacancies will include canine carer jobs, centre management and other hands on and administrative roles.
- Recruitment for the centre is unlikely to start before next year. When vacancies are released, they will be published in the local press and on the Jobs page of our website.
- While speculative applications (CV with a covering letter) are welcome, we cannot keep CVs on file for more than six months, so to be considered for this centre we would recommend that you do not send a CV before the end of the year. The email address for applications and related queries is firstname.lastname@example.org
- To volunteer, we recommend contacting the centre once it has opened, as all volunteering at Dogs Trust centres is arranged locally (see our website to find out more about volunteering for existing centres).
We hope that answers all your questions, but feel free to ask about anything else in the comments.
