Dog Grooming Assistant Stylist Apprenticeships

Monday 11 April, 2016

This is the chance to gain an Intermediate Apprenticeship in Animal Care with an NVQ Level 2 Dog Grooming Pathway whilst gaining first class work experience with the UK’s largest Pet Supplies Retailer. There are currently opportunities available in 30 of the stores located throughout England (see below for a list of current locations). On top of your apprenticeship you will receive a comprehensive in-house training programme, designed to develop your grooming skills, starting with bathing and brushing skills, then moving onto clipping dogs and eventually developing scissoring skills. You will soon be able to style all breeds of dog with fantastic results every time!

The Intermediate Apprenticeship in Animal Care and Dog Grooming is aimed at people entering the dog grooming industry for the first time with no formal training or experience. This is a great course, covering all the basics such as handling and restraint, bathing and drying dogs, maintaining equipment and basic trimming. If you have a real passion for pets and their welfare, are reliable and focused then this could be the perfect career for you.

Pets at Home offer the ultimate pet shop experience, together with a wealth of advice, support and services from the Groom Room to the in-store veterinary surgery and much more.

This is a fantastic opportunity to come and gain work experience for a company that has been voted Number 1 in the Sunday Times Best Big Companies to Work for. With over 400 stores and plans to open a further 20 new stores this year they are expanding at an unstoppable rate which you really do need to be part of to believe. They have more than 180 exciting in-store salons which are full of character and are a great place for you to start your grooming career. Successful completion of your apprenticeship could lead to progression or permanent employment, subject to business need and budgets.

You will gain a recognised qualification and work experience whilst being supported in the workplace by the staff in the Salon/Shop, a dedicated SEAC Apprenticeship Account Manager and Training Assessor.
