NOW HIRING - Assistant Groomer

 

We have an IMMEDIATE opening for an Assistant Groomer. Our ideal candidate first and foremost LOVES dogs.  We are looking for an individual who is punctual, reliable and is able and willing to work under physically taxing conditions.

 

About The Friendly Groomer

We focus on providing high-quality services with a personal touch that has resulted in us having a lot of wonderful customers.  In fact, our customers are so loyal that we won the LFP’s 2018 & 2019 award for Best Pet Groomer and 2017 and 2015 Reader’s Choice Award for Best Salon in London.  We try to give back to the community by hosting neighbourhood dog walks and by grooming homeless pets, free of charge.

About the Job  

The Assistant Groomer’s primary role is to bathe and dry dogs for the Groomers in our salon.  Duties include:

  • Bathing and drying dogs

  • Continuously cleaning the bathing area of fur and water

  • Support the Groomers by performing odd jobs around the salon when not focusing on primary duties (sweeping, emptying garbages, answering phones)

 

The Good Stuff

Here are some benefits to working at The Friendly Groomer

  • Regular FULL TIME HOURS

  • Every Sunday and Monday off

  • You will be a salaried, rather than an hourly, employee (meaning paid vacation and sick days!)

  • Group Benefits

  • Spending your day with dogs

 

The Bad (and Gross) Stuff

While working with dogs is awesome, the Assistant Groomer job isn’t an easy one.  There are often fussy, difficult, even bitey dogs who absolutely HATE being bathed and dried.  There’s poop, pee, fleas, and ticks. On top of it, the working conditions tend to be very damp, noisy and furry. 

About You

While experience working with animals is an asset, first and foremost we are looking for someone who has a positive, trainable, attitude.  Working in a grooming salon can be stressful, especially when there are fussy dogs and you’re pressured for time, so having an Assistant Groomer who maintains their cool is very important.  

 

We are also looking for you to be…

  • Punctual

  • Reliable

  • A true animal lover

  • Physically able to lift heavy dogs

  • Physically able to spend the day on your feet in a wet, furry environment
