Relief Development Workers

Full Information

 Would you like relief position that combines working with adults, young people and dogs? Are you an experienced support worker looking for a new challenge? Do you love dogs and being outdoors?

SPPOT Development Workers are based at our Accredited Canine Education Service in Haverfordwest incorporating our dog daycare service and the central hub for our countywide dog walking services. We provide training and volunteering opportunities for adults and children who experience barriers to work and education, to become dog walkers and dog daycarers.

The Development Worker role is varied, challenging and fun. Every day is different and can involve working with young people and adults in dog daycare, structured training sessions, travelling all over the county to support dog walking in the community and a fair chunk of admin and record keeping.

Relief staff are required to cover sickness, annual leave and so forth. This can be for the odd shift here and there, for a full week or two, or no shifts in a week or more.

Applicants need to have at least 2 years proven experience in a related field e.g. social care, education, youth work. A fully enhanced DBS check and a clean driving licence with use of a car with business insurance is also required.


Applications currently being invited, interviews will be booked individually. Informal visits to find out more are actively welcomed
