Equine Rehoming Team Member

Non-riding post

40 hours per week (to include weekends on a rota basis)

We offer shift workers a premium pay rate on Sundays (time and a half) and Bank Holidays (double time).

(Live-in unfurnished shared flat, is available if required (rent payable), at a different Redwings location. Live-in employees are required to undertake 4 night checks per week, paid as additional hours).

 

An excellent opportunity has arisen for an experienced and confident individual to join the Redwings Rehoming Centre at Hapton in a non-riding post. 

You will be expected to be an active member of a small team of motivated staff to ensure the smooth and professional running of the centre. Along with the usual yard duties the job includes, but is not limited to, training horses in all manner of ground work, up to and including the initial backing stages, assessing potential guardians and matching potential guardians to equines. You will also compile and complete rehoming packs, update equine training records, and assist with the delivery of some equines.

The ability to be professional when dealing with the general public is essential as the Rehoming Team provide demonstrations for open days and are in contact with the public on a regular basis at Guardian trials. A good telephone technique and the ability to communicate effectively are also essential qualities. Applicants must show the ability to implement effective equine training programmes and have a sound knowledge of equine health and welfare. Experience of backing and handling youngsters is preferable, although not vital.

A full clean manual driving licence is necessary as you will be required to drive company vehicles.
