Animal Attendant / Pet Taxi Driver – QLD

Logan Village, QLD based role, Aug 2021

Thank you for your interest in the role of Animal Attendant / Pet Taxi Driver.

This Position has now been filled.

We have a current Part Time vacancy for an individual to assist us locally with Pet Care and Pet Taxi services. The following information is provided to give prospective applicants sufficient details to decide whether the position would be suitable for them before applying.

Dogmovers is a small family business based at Logan Village with an additional depot on the NSW Central Coast. We transport pets, primarily Dogs & Cats, throughout Queensland, NSW, Victoria and South Australia. We operate similarly to a long distance bus service with a number of set weekly trips operated to a regular timetable plus we provide more Specialised Custom services on demand and locally

We are seeking to employ a locally based person to assist us with the care of animals that stay with us overnight during their interstate trips and to complete local Pet Taxi or delivery services as required.

This role may suit an individual that is already involved in the Pet Care industry such as a Pet sitter, walker or groomer and the successful applicant will require an open Drivers licence, ability to drive both Manual and Automatic vans and their own transport to get to and from work.

This is a Casual – Part Time position which will involve irregular hours to start but is expected to grow into a more regular role for the right person with the opportunity for hours to increase if you are local and flexible enough to also provide backup & support to other local staff.

Animal CareInterstate Pet Transport Routes

The Animal care aspect of the role involves caring for animals staying overnight during their interstate trips. This will require early morning and evening work at times and will include walking feeding and monitoring the health of dogs, cats and other animals. This will usually occur on site but there are times where due to the number or the age of the pets it would be more appropriate that they be cared for overnight at home and we would give preference to an individual that is willing and able to do this where it is appropriate.

Driving

The Driving aspect of the role will require a confident and experienced driver with a Manual license. We have a range of vehicles, typically these are commercial Vans and you may be expected to drive different vehicles at times. We expect the bulk of Pet Taxi jobs to be local deliveries around Brisbane or to the Airport however there will occasionally be longer trips throughout South East QLD and this may also involve towing small to medium dog floats.

The role will also require working with Interstate Drivers and other staff at the local depot or at other local meeting points.

We will consider everyone on their merits however in general we are looking for someone with the following qualities:

  • A Caring, Service Orientated individual.
  • A desire to provide quality care to our clients Pets. 
  • Living locally in or near Logan Village.
  • A confident and experienced Driver with a manual license.
  • A confident GPS user / Navigator.
  • Previous animal handling skills. 
  • Availability to work flexible hours including early mornings, evenings, weekends, school holidays and public holidays.

Hopefully that will give you a better insight into what the job entails and the type of person we are looking for and we thank you for taking the time to consider it.
