Therapy Dog Team Trainer & Assessor - Actively Recruiting
Delta Therapy Dogs is inviting applications from suitably qualified candidates for the contract role of Therapy Dog Team Trainer & Assessor in the following regions:
Hunter / Newcastle, NSW
Central Coast, NSW
Albury, NSW / Wodonga, VIC
About the Role: Successful applicants will primarily be responsible for the assessment of current and potential Therapy Dog Teams who volunteer as part of Delta’s programs. Delta Therapy Dogs is also changing the way in which it provides training to its Therapy Dog Teams, and so as these new programs and initiatives roll out there will also be opportunity to deliver training to Therapy Dog Teams – either as part of their induction program or as part of their on-going professional development (eg. when stepping up in to our Collaborative Animal Assisted Therapy programs).
Commitment: Depending on the region, there are between 2 and 8 Assessment Days per year. In small regions there is generally only one Assessor, and assessments are completed half yearly, however in larger regions there may be 2-3 Trainers and Assessors who share this workload. It is expected we will build up to a similar number of training days a year.
How to Apply: Please apply at your earliest convenience as per the details in the Job Advertisement below. Applications will be assessed as they are received and suitable candidates will be invited for interview.
