Overview: To Whom It May Concern,
I shall be grateful for your consideration of my suitability for this position. After recently obtaining
my degree in Zoology from Bangor University, I have been eager to continue engaging in animal related work. I would relish working alongside others in assisting and enabling the continuation of high
standard veterinary practices within an institution such as yours – a crucial step along the chain of
contemporary animal welfare.
Throughout my zoology degree I was involved in laboratory experiments with live and
deceased organisms, especially model organisms such as zebra fish and mice. I am well versed in
animal husbandry. Respect and compassion for each individual animal was not simply part of ethical
procedure, but something that came as second nature to me as I am very passionate about animal
welfare. Whilst keenly involved in my studies, I was (and remain) part of my university’s zoological
society and was social secretary for our university’s women’s basketball team, showing my
capabilities to take on external responsibilities whilst remaining focused on my goals.
I have over half a decade’s experience in self-employment in animal care for various animals, such as
dogs, cats, ferrets, snakes, lizards, and goldfish. I have garnered several skills: time keeping, handling
both calm and distressed animals in a professional and risk-evasive manner, self-management, first-
hand ethology, gaining trust and building a rapport with numerous people from disparate
backgrounds and documenting records of each client pet’s care. Despite being capable of working
alone, I thrive in environments which require teamwork and adapting to others’ needs. This was
particularly apparent at university where I discovered a propensity for team building and group
projects. In October 2020, I utilised these skills at Kingston Crown Court (London) where I was elected jury foreperson by my fellow jurors on a serious firearm case, despite the statistical likelihood of my not being chosen. I believe these skills and traits would make me a valuable addition to the MARS volunteer team. Throughout lockdown, I have acquired numerous certificates in courses to enhance my skill set. Most notably, my Health and Safety: Level 2 and Pet First Aid courses. I believe these skills and traits would make me a valuable addition to the veterinary practice’s team.
The work experience I found most rewarding was the time I spent at Deen City Farm. There I was
supervised and trained in providing sanitary conditions, dietary requirements, and specific welfare
needs to the cows, pigs, sheep, goats, alpacas, ferrets, horses, ducks and geese, and chickens and
turkeys in my temporary care.
I am proficient in Microsoft Word, Excel, and Outlook. I also have four years’ experience of using
statistical tests (in the programmes; SPSS, R-studio, and Oriana to process raw data) and enjoy figure work. Keeping well organised emails and files comes as second nature to me. When faced with uncertainty, I am not adverse to notifying others when I require assistance, and enjoy learning new skills. As I studied Karate for 8 years, I have learned to relish the opportunity to conquer tasks laden with difficulty and have a persistently optimistic attitude when presented with a challenge. As I have a sharp memory for scientific procedures and computer programmes, I do not doubt I would enjoy and quickly pick up required techniques that are novel to me. When surrounded by unfamiliar faces, I quickly break the ice and create a friendly engaging atmosphere, being described by many as very approachable and a supportive listener. Due to this, I am confident you shall find me to be a more than adequate addition to your staff.
Please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions regarding my application or require more
information about any of my experience covered therein. I look forward to an opportunity to
thoroughly discuss the position with you further.
