St Peter & St James Hospice is situated in the heart of the Sussex countryside near Haywards Heath, providing specialist palliative care to support, empower and care for people towards and at the end of life.
We are looking to recruit an Equine Assistant to help support the care of our two resident donkeys, Dylan and Dudley. Working hours will be 1.5 hours per day any time between 4pm and 7pm on a Thursday and a Friday.
You will have equine experience and be competent and confident in providing care to the donkeys. This will include being able to provide care to their hooves, worming treatments, administering eye ointments if required and following Farrier/Vet instructions as needed. Duties also include feeding the donkeys and mucking out their stables and yard area.
You will be very hands-on, be flexible and hard working. Additional hours (paid) will be required to cover annual leave of the other Equine Assistant.
Due to our location you must have your own transport and the post is subject to an enhanced DBS check.
