Contract: Permanent, Full Time Location: SPCA New Plymouth Do you hold a certificate of Animal Welfare investigations, or another relevant qualification related to regulatorycompliance or enforcement? We need people to join our Inspectorate team ready to hit the ground running to help prevent cruelty to Animals around New Zealand. SPCA is one of the best loved and most respected charities in New Zealand, with a proud history of helping animals in need and advocating for animal welfare since 1872. Our Inspectors play a vital role in the work of the SPCA. They are at the front line of the SPCA's mission to prevent cruelty to animals, but their role is also so much more than that. SPCA Inspectors are called upon to work with communities to teach people how to look after their animals, to rescue abandoned or neglected animals, and provide hands-on treatment of animals where needed. Because the SPCA is the only charity in New Zealand that can legally enforce the Animal Welfare Act, our Inspectors also prosecute people who deliberately harm animals, and work with offenders to ensure that it does not happen again. Do you have what it takes to be an SPCA Inspector? Your strong work ethic, attitude and commitment are by far the most important factors when considering your suitability to become an SPCA Inspector. Other qualities include: Mature temperament, confident and able to make sound judgment calls Resilience in the face of a challenging work environment Ability to follow clear protocols and processes Excellent information-gathering skills and the ability to record information accurately The ability to work methodically, frequently dealing with multiple and sometimes conflicting priorities Experience and/or basic knowledge of animals and their welfare needs Being comfortable working in the community, with people of all ages and socio-economic backgrounds A desire to make a difference to the lives of animals across New Zealand You will also be required to hold a certificate of Animal Welfare investigations or another relevant qualification related to regulatory compliance or enforcement. Any qualifications related to animal health and husbandry would also be desirable. What does an SPCA Inspector's job involve? An Inspector's primary role is to respond to complaints about the ill-treatment or neglect of a range of animals in the community. There may be calls to emergency situations where animals require immediate assistance or rescue. Some instances may necessitate court action, so the Inspector is required to gather evidence and prepare a prosecution file. Another significant part of an Inspector's duties is education. Often, animals are unintentionally neglected and those responsible are genuinely upset by the incident. In these cases, the Inspector can initiate change immediately through the provision of information and positive education. If this sounds like the role for you, then hit the APPLY button.
