Dog Walker getting dogs to sit

Jobs at Simply the Pets

Dog Lovers - we need you!


  • Are you an animal lover, with a passion for working outdoors?
  • Do you have some spare hours in the week, between 10am and 3pm?
  • Looking for a supplemental income?
  • Does the idea of spending your days covered in slobbery kisses and muddy paws with windswept sound like your idea of heaven?

If so, Simply the Pets are looking for trustworthy and reliable dog lovers to help us provide dog walking services on behalf of our valued clients. Our Bank Dog Walkers supplement our permanent team. They provide cover for planned and unplanned shortfalls in staffing, covering vacancies and staff absence. This is a flexible role with no guaranteed hours. There is the opportunity for growth in the role to a permanent position as our company continues to gain new business and is therefore a great foot in the door for someone looking to get into the animal care industry.

Who We Are:

Simply the Pets is an extremely busy pet care company offering the very best in pet services covering South Croydon and the surrounding areas. We see our client’s animals as an important member of the family and so we treat them like they are our own and are strictly a force-free company.

This is for you if:

  • You are looking to get in to the animal care industry or love dogs and would like a supplemental income
  • You have excellent communication skills; we pride ourselves on our customer service, so a friendly, warm personality is a must
  • You are confident and able to walk up to four dogs at a time. We walk all breeds, big and small - this is no easy "walk in the park" but it is extremely fun and rewarding!
  • You love and enjoy the outdoors - our dogs need a walk whatever the weather so if the idea of being out in the cold, wet, snow, hot or strong winds sounds like your idea of hell this is probably not for you.
  • You are trustworthy, honest & reliable
  • You are good at planning your own time
  • You have a can-do attitude who isn’t afraid to get stuck in… we pick up poop, wash dogs off covered in poop, get jumped on and covered in mud and slobber
  • You are resilient and good at problem solving - working with animals means we never know what each day will bring
  • You live near: Purley, Kenley, Caterham, South Croydon, Coulsdon, Warlingham or Sanderstead
  • You're flexible with availability Monday to Friday between the hours of 10am and 3pm
  • You hold a current UK driving licence & have access to a vehicle suitable to transport dogs in that you are happy to use.

If you think you’ve got what it takes to join our team, please send us your CV and covering letter and we’ll be in touch.

Cat Lovers

  • Do you love cats?
  • Would you like to be paid to cuddle & care for them?
  • Are you available for a few hours on the weekends?

If yes, we'd love to hear from you as we're looking for someone to help us with our busy cat sitting services.

During our visits we will put down fresh food, clean bowls & litter trays, bring in the post as well as providing that all important fuss and attention.

This role would suit someone looking for a supplemental income as offers of work would be dependent on the bookings received.
