Job description

Do you want to support pet owners who are homeless or in housing crisis?

We are recruiting for a new position which will involve working with colleagues within the homeless and housing (voluntary and statutory), animal welfare and veterinary sectors across Scotland to develop and deliver a targeted regional strategy that will increase accommodation and support options for homeless pet owners and help homelessness services to become pet friendly. 

This 12-month fixed term unique post is funded by Dogs Trust and the Simon Community to make a difference to the lives of homeless dog owners and their pets across Scotland.  As experts in their sectors, these charities have come together with the aim of increasing accommodation and support options for homeless dog owners, by supporting voluntary and statutory homelessness services across Scotland.  This post is managed and delivered by Dogs Trust, but the post-holder will be expected to work closely with our Simon Community colleagues and other key established contacts in Scotland. 

The bases for this project are Glasgow, Edinburgh and Perth and will require the post-holder to be flexible and ‘hot-desk’ across Dogs Trust and Simon Community offices in these areas. 

The role is 35 hours per week, Mon to Fri, 9am to 5pm (with a requirement to undertake occasional out of hours working; such as attending events and meetings during the evenings or weekends).

Access to a vehicle for work purposes and the willingness to travel across Scotland as needed is essential. This may also include occasional overnight stays. 

Please note - a criminal records check through Disclosure Scotland will be required for this role.
