Casual Lecturer - Dog Grooming

We have an exciting opportunity for an experienced Dog Groomer/Lecturer Dog Grooming to be involved in increasing the provision at the College. Our aim is to grow this provision further and offer a variety of course options.

You will need to have capacity on a flexible basis over the months of July and August for commercial dog grooming, when the students are not available, in order to increase the commercial enterprise of the provision, and the available client base.

Initially we are looking for a minimum weekend availability of at least 3 weekends across the year (both Saturday and Sunday) for teaching practical dog grooming to external clients that are making use of our facilities in addition to the summer availability. This is likely to grow over time as we offer more of this clients dog grooming course provision.

Initially this could work around a part time job, but will likely grow over time as our provision grows. We are happy to upskill a qualified dog groomer with teaching support and teaching qualifications should the need arise.

You will:

  • Provide a Dog Grooming service over the summer period to commercial clients
  • Teach and train students and other client groups to quality standards set by the College
  • Develop Dog Grooming Courses

The post holder should have a broad range of knowledge and industry experience in Dog Grooming and hold a Level 2 and ideally also a Level 3 Dog Grooming qualification. The candidate should also ideally hold a teaching/assessor qualification or be willing to work towards this.
