An exciting opportunity has arisen for an enthusiastic and motivated team player to join the Animal Service Unit at the University of Bristol.

You will have extensive experience of working with research animal species, particularly rodents, covering their husbandry, welfare and typical research uses including breeding.
You will have very good verbal and written skills and be comfortable communicating with a range of staff from team colleagues to more senior staff including the Unit Manager, Named Veterinary Surgeon and researchers.
Weekend and Bank holiday working will be required on a rota basis. You may be expected to work in any of the University of Bristol Animal Service Unit facilities and deliver items between them.
