London (PRWeb) February 27, 2007 -- A dream job working with animals could be just one click away - thanks to http://www.animaljobsdirect.com.

Having spent many years working in the animal care industry, the site's founders identified the over whelming need for a one-stop, animal related resource for job seekers and employers. The site is unique and invaluable to those wanting a career with animals, animal care professionals seeking a new job, and employers looking to fill animal care vacancies.

There are many exciting prospects and opportunities working with animals; animal jobs direct has comprehensive, worldwide about animal related careers, current animal jobs, animal care courses, volunteer opportunities and insight information into what working with animals involves. Crucially, the site contains worldwide animal job information; there are hundreds of jobs in animal rescue charities, wildlife organisations, conservation societies, veterinary practices, zoos, safari parks; jobs with cats, horses, dogs and wildlife - from New Zealand, Australia, Asia, USA, Europe and the remotest parts of Africa.

A career with animals may involve working for a charity, veterinary practice, wildlife organisation, zoo or private business - eg, cattery, pet shop, pet photographer, dog walker or groomer. The work can be directly with animals, in a hands on role - e.g. veterinary, dog warden, animal care assistant, field officer, behaviourist, ambulance driver and handlers, or it may involve working with animals in a more remote way. Working in animal related management, campaigns, fundraising, administrative or personnel positions can be just as rewarding as working directly with animals. Raising awareness of animal suffering, raising funds to assist other more hands on organisations and campaigning for better legislation for the protection of animals is all crucial to the task of helping animals.

Animal Jobs Direct has insight information into what the various careers truly involve. The career advice section points out animal welfare charities are probably the busiest and most challenging organisations that one could work for. The lack of legislation to control the breeding and selling of all types of companion animals, has led to a huge increase in the numbers of unwanted animals. Many animal related careers are not for the faint hearted, and may involve contact with factory farming, inhumane slaughtering in the meat trade, hunting, the exotic pet trade, dog fighting and animal abuse. However, for those who care about animals and truly want to make a difference, working in the animal welfare sector can be an immensely rewarding career.

Animal Jobs Direct has comprehensive information on courses and qualifications in animal care, including online courses, part time and full time courses. Training options include certificate, diploma and courses including: veterinary, animal care, behaviour and management, equine studies, feline studies, wildlife and animal charity related courses.

The site's founders point out that commitment, reliability and a genuine concern for the welfare of animals can be more important attributes than formal qualifications. A mature person looking for a career working with animals, may not necessarily have animal welfare experience, however, good work experience, life skills and being able to demonstrate a genuine interest in animal welfare, will give applicants a good chance of being employed within the animal care sector. Interest, aptitude and commitment can sometimes be more important than initial entry qualifications.

Many animal welfare organisations recruit good volunteers when jobs arise. Volunteering with animals will improve employment prospects considerably as valuable, practical animal care work experience can be gained. Animal Jobs Direct has further information about volunteering with animals and there is information on worldwide animal volunteering opportunities.

At last, animal job seekers and employers can find all the information they need on one easy to navigate site: www.animaljobsdirect.com

The Animal Jobs Direct team are working hard to continually review and update the site and they welcome feedback.
