Temporary Positions

Trainee Animal Technician
London, London
  • Are you looking for a job that is working with animals?
  • Are you struggling to find an animal career option that pays well?
  • Are you looking for a career that has realistic yet achievable development goals that has a CPD plan from day 1? (Don’t believe us? Check it out for yourself on the governments national careers service website)
  • Are you interested in the world of life science?
  • Or are you an existing Animal Tech who wants to reach higher?

We are looking for enthusiastic individuals to join our growing ‘Animal Technician’ and ‘Animal Technologist’ team working at prestigious client’s sites across the UK. As the largest provider of Animal Technicians and Animal Technologists in the UK, S3 Science have a variety of opportunities available whether you are a trainee or experienced Animal Technician / Animal Technologist. We are leaders in our field and have even partnered up with some of the industry’s top UK employers, to offer an employer led ‘placement programme’ to support budding animal technicians who lack experience, find a job in the industry. (Note: as of September 2018 the ATDP programme has shown at a 100% In to Work rate upon successful completion of the programme).

If you want to work with animals let’s be honest, there aren’t hundreds of career options open to you. It is specialised work and in many cases the widely held view is that the bulk of animal jobs  available offer limited career progression, low or no pay (voluntary work) and without clear, achievable career goals. Based on the Government’s National Careers Services findings, a career within the life sciences sector offers the highest salary bandings and career progression.

The good news is that by becoming an Animal Technologist with S3 you will have access to;

  • A Structured career path – From day 1 you will have clear and achievable goals, leading to promotion levels which are accompanied with salary increases
  • 24/7 Support – Our in house team of highly successful and experienced ‘Animal Technicians’ are there to confidentially support you day or night so that you can truly shine in your role! Just drop us a text or call to our 24 hour telephone help line. (This is an all year round helpline so YES, it does even include bank holidays!)
  • Continued and ongoing training – Training that is specifically focused on working with animals
  • Decent earnings – Start your career from day 1 with decent earnings that rise along with the skills and experience you develop over time. In fact the UK stat’s suggests that Animal Technologists earn more than the majority of roles available working with animals
  • Be employed by some of the most prestigious and interesting organisations in the UK with not only a great salary but also inclusive benefits package and active social scene
  • Passionate & Sociable teams – Work with a team of fellow animal technologists every day that just like you share a passion for animals
  • Although a very rewarding role, the successful candidate must have the emotional maturity to deal with emotional issues such as euthanasia’
  • And finally, you will be joining an elite workforce of super intelligent, animal loving (animal mad!) individuals that get to do what they love – work with animals whilst getting paid for it..

To join our temporary team of animal technicians you must have the following:

  • Experience of working with animals or hold an animal related qualification
  • High motivation levels and a good work ethic
  • The ability to work to set procedures with a high degree of attention to detail
  • A genuine passion to work with animals, demonstrating care and compassion
  • Your own transport is an advantage

Daily duties working for S3 Science as an Animal Technician and Animal Technologist include:

  • Feeding and watering
  • General health checking
  • Handling animals
