Overview: I have always been interested in animals ever since a young age. This drove my education choices where from leaving school I attended Myerscough college in Preston. Here I undertook qualifications in Animal Welfare subjects to enable this as a career path, after a couple of years this led to my first role working for Lancashire Police Dog Unit as a Dog Welfare Liaison Officer, a post for which I held for 15 years until February 2018 where I was successful in my application to join the RSPCA as an Animal Collection Officer. As a younger adult, I always wanted to work for the RSPCA or progress a career in a veterinary practice, and found both roles appealing. I am applying for this role, as the RSPCA have recently announced a restructure where the ACO role that I perform is being disestablished. This role therefore has immediately taken my interest as it is a role that will keep me in my career path of working with animals and I hope this role will allow me to develop further in the veterinary industry which I am really keen on doing.In relation to the duties of the role, I have lots of experience that I can bring to this role as follows.I can think on my feet and make quick decisions, for example in my current role I would attend an emergency where an animal has collapsed and need to assess and make a quick decision in a life or death circumstance. I am a good team player, for example I have worked in multiple scenarios where I need to attend a complex rescue and work with other inspectors or ACOs, and independently, I have requested and worked with the fire brigade on rescues. I am confident in working with all animals and have many years experience of this through my roles at Lancashire Police Dog Unit and the RSPCA. I am confident at communicating with the general public, both on the phone and face to face. Today in my role as an ACO, I speak to the public on a job to job basis, sometimes in good situations and sometimes I have handled more aggressive members of the public. I also feel I am a compassionate person when dealing with sensitive issues.I organise digital files in my role, sometimes this is around animal files and other times more complicated files such as casework. I have handled and transacted cash in roles in the past such as when I worked in Greggs the bakers alongside my studies. I currently work on a 24/7 rota basis where I am used to being on call and called out overnight to attend emergencies.
