    We have an exciting opportunity for an exceptional person to join our team in the role of TheraPaws Programme Coordinator.

    TheraPaws is an animal assisted intervention programme delivered by Mayhew.  We recognise the benefits of taking animals into the care setting to engage with vulnerable people, encouraging social interaction to promote emotional and physical wellbeing. Our volunteers take their behaviourally assessed dogs into hospitals, mental health centres, SEN schools, care homes and hospices to help improve the quality of life for those interacting with the animal. We work with people of all ages and all boroughs across London.

    We are looking to recruit a TheraPaws Programme Coordinator to join our Operations – Animal Welfare/Community team to coordinate, promote and develop the TheraPaws programme within London with respect to older and vulnerable service users and to show the measurable impact of the benefits of the service.

    Part of this role involves the transportation of animals, it is, therefore, essential that the successful candidate holds a full, clean driving licence.

    Although we are looking for someone with dog/behaviourist training, we welcome applications from candidates that have a passion for and knowledgeable experience with dogs who have other skills such as project management, volunteer management and media experience.

    Mayhew works in, and supports a diverse community here in London and internationally and welcome applicants from people with disabilities, Black, Asian or Minority Ethnic (BAME) backgrounds and the LGBT+ community.

    We will be actively interviewing when the right candidates apply, therefore early submission is advised.
