Where and when can I work?

The hours worked by an animal welfare inspector can vary, due to reports of abuse being made all the time. You should expect to work some late mornings and early evenings.

What can I earn?

The salary of a welfare officer starts at £18,500 per year plus benefits, with this increasing as you gain more experience and take on more responsibility.

What are the benefits?

Unlike other roles, there is plenty of opportunity for progression.

Are there chances of promotion?

The best way to be promoted within this role is to be willing to gain as much experience as possible, either on a paid or voluntary basis. With the opportunity to progress to a managerial role, such as a Chief Inspector or a Superintendent, the sky is your limit.

What will I be responsible for?

Animal welfare inspectors are responsible for investigating reports of animal abuse, rescuing abused animals, advising owners on how best to look after their animal, promoting the work of the organisation, and to liaise with animal welfare establishments.

Do I need any experience?

Experience in diffusing hostile situations is a must, as when working in an animal welfare inspector role angry members of the public may confront you, especially if you are taking away their family pet. Experience in offering support and compassion is also beneficial.

What attributes are needed?

Those wanting to become animal welfare inspectors should have an interest in others and understand what motivates them, as well as be sympathetic and caring to a certain point. Someone successful in securing this role would be willing to learn, assertive, and most importantly love animals.
