MEDIA RELEASE: The views expressed in this article are those of the author and not Bailiwick Express, and the text is reproduced exactly as supplied to us

We celebrate our 150 year history this year and we couldn’t do so much without our incredible team of staff, volunteers and supporters.

Steve Byrne GSPCA Manager said “We have never been so busy as we have been in current years and with plans of new builds to meeting every day demands we are currently recruiting for additional team members at the GSPCA.”

“Sadly some of our fantastic staff are off for new adventures and we are looking to recruit those keen to help animals, make a difference and support our community.”

“We truly wish them well, but this gives the opportunity for those looking to start a career in animal care at the GSPCA.”

“Every day we help save lives and support our community in a vast array of ways as we have done for 150 years.”

“If a paid post isn’t what you are looking for we are always recruiting volunteers and please do get in touch if you are interested.”

“With over 300 animals in our care at anytime there is always plenty to do and as Spring approaches we are already getting busier.”

“To apply for a paid position please download the application pack below, call 257261 and we can post one out, email or pop in to collect a pack.”
