Job Description

The role of Kennel Assistant with Securitas is a varied and rewarding one. We’ve built a strong reputation for excellent animal care across the region and further afield, and a tremendous effort is made by our team to make our pet guests’ visit as enjoyable, rewarding and as stress free as possible.

It is the Kennel Assistant’s role to look after the welfare of animals in our care from cleaning, grooming and feeding to one-to-one enrichment – be that play time, exercise or just a cuddle. There is a high degree of cleaning in this role including cleaning the kennels/cat units, exercise runs and general housekeeping of the kennel and cattery environment to the high standard that we pride ourselves on. This job isn’t glamorous – mud, paw prints and pet hairs are part of the uniform! – but the interaction and bonds you build with the animals is hugely rewarding. 

Securitas has roots dating back to the 1930s, and we’ve seen – and been a part of – ground-breaking changes within the security industry, specifically in the canine services sector. We are looking for a Kennel Assistant to join our team, operating at our Chalkwell site. With access to training and the ability to gain qualifications, you can grow in confidence and take on more responsibility. Our people are empowered and are not micro-managed. We trust people to do a good job and make a difference every day, and we recognise our employee's efforts and achievements through our ‘You Make a Difference Awards’ and quarterly ‘Community Award’ schemes.

If this sounds like an organisation that you can contribute to, then we want to hear from you.


Securitas are redefining industry and unlike other security companies, we are driving solutions that combine people technology and knowledge rather than just static guarding. We are establishing a reputation that is second to none as we integrate with the operations teams within hundreds of high profile companies.
