Part-Time Pets enables you to provide the positive benefits of pet ownership to your people, without the hassle of a full-time pet. Your four-legged friend will visit at times convenient for you, accompanied by the member of our team responsible for their wellbeing. Our animals are insured and well-trained, so you can relax and enjoy the sessions.

Our founder Florence has a degree in Experimental Psychology, with a specialism in animal behaviour. She studied at the University of Oxford - our very first client! The work we do is therefore is grounded in the latest scientific research, so let us help you provide a culture similar to pet-friendly Google, Amazon and Salesforce, without the hassle of a pet policy.

 

Scientifically Proven Benefits

Stroking a pet increases the ‘happiness hormones’ serotonin, dopamine and oxytocin. This lowers blood pressure and heart rate, and decreases the stress hormone cortisol, stress related ailments and even perceived stress

 

Statistical & Anecdotal Evidence

o   67% of businesses stated having pets in the office increased employee morale, motivation, productivity, camaraderie, team building, and encouraged a sense of community, by allowing for higher quality social interactions

o   Half of all businesses surveyed noticed reduced absenteeism

o   Having pets around has been shown to encourage longer working hours

o   Allowing pets in communal areas can increase productivity 

o   One survey showed 58% of millennials thought it was 'cool' if a company allowed pets in the workplace

o   Another study found 90% of employers reported at least one positive change upon introducing a pet policy

Work With Us

 

Puppy Session Lead

Part-time role

Paid per session

Part-Time Pets provides companies and schools with four-legged friends who visit at convenient times. Our work is grounded in the latest scientific research, which consistently highlights the stress relieving benefits of pets - particularly dogs. Having a full-time pet is a huge responsibility, so we aim to provide our clients with all the positive benefits, whilst taking care of pet wellbeing in-house.

Part-Time Pets is on a rapid upward trajectory, breaking even in less than two quarters, continuing to grow month on month since then. We are looking for a Puppy Session Lead to join our team and help take the company to the next level.

This is a unique opportunity to join an innovative, high-growth startup as one of the founding members, with a full time role on the horizon. Our business is centred on wellbeing and wellness, so we do everything to ensure our people not only enjoy their working day, but receive job satisfaction and plenty of opportunity for personal and professional development. Our clients span a range of industries, so you'll continuously meet new, interesting and engaging people who will be delighted to meet you - but maybe not as much as the pets.

Everyone is welcome to apply, but the ideal candidate will have the following:

  • a love of and natural rapport with animals

  • a demonstrable passion for wellness and wellbeing

  • experience with animals (preferably dogs/puppies) at home or work

  • experience working in a school and/or office setting

  • competency with social media (mainly Facebook, Twitter, Instagram)

  • a flexible weekday schedule

If this sounds like you, please submit an application at your earliest convenience. Interviews are scheduled for Thursday 20th and Friday 21st April – we look forward to hearing from you!

 
 

Please complete the form below. A member of our team will be in touch to arrange an interview should your application be successful.
