The College of Animal Welfare’s annual Careers With Animals Day was the place to be on Saturday 14 October, as hundreds of people of all ages and backgrounds flocked to the College’s centre in Tingley to find out more about how they could turn their dream of working with animals into a reality.
With over 350 visitors dropping in to speak to exhibitors and attend careers talks, an excellent day was had by all. Careers talks running throughout the day covered everything from veterinary nursing and dog grooming, to wildlife conservation and veterinary medicine. One visitor said: “Everyone was very helpful [and I] loved the career talks. I’ve come away today knowing how to get into what I want to do with my career.” Another, “We’ve left feeling excited and inspired!”
Claire Gregory, Short Course and Events Administrator at the College, who organised the event, said: “It was great to see so many people coming together to get the advice and information they needed to take their career in a new direction! Working with animals can be incredibly rewarding and there are such a wide range of opportunities to choose from” She added: “We were lucky to receive support from a wide variety of fantastic organisations, who both exhibited and delivered careers talks for the event, and we would like to thank them all for their help in making the day such a huge success.”
Preparations for next year’s event are already underway; details will be available shortly at www.careerswithanimals.co.uk
