Some of your main duties as an Animal Technician will include:

  • Feeding and watering animals
  • General health checking
  • Handling animals
  • Cage cleaning and washing


All new Trainee Animal Technicians will be provided with a short 12-week induction training programme. This will include short multiple-choice study modules, followed by a week of unpaid work experience at a client site to put into practice what you’ve learned in your study modules and get a feel for the working environment.

Successful candidates then progress onto 10 weeks of paid work experience and training, working alongside experienced and qualified Animal Technicians. Upon accreditation, at week 12 you can expect to be either permanently employed by the client or choose to enrol as a temporary worker with the flexibility to work at client sites across the country.


The qualities of an Animal Technician are:

  • High levels of motivation and a good work ethic
