Job description


Drivers - The Pet Crematorium (Lanarkshire)


An excellent opportunity has arisen to join one of the UK's leading providers of pet cremation services. Based in Larkhall, we are now looking to recruit additional Collection Drivers to join our experienced team.


This varied role encompasses collecting from veterinary practices and clients' homes, and carrying out various tasks within our crematorium. 


While you will be working as part of a small and close-knit team, you will also be comfortable working on your own and with minimal supervision. 


With 5 GCSE's or equivalent of grade “E” or above and with a minimum of Grade “C” in English Language and Mathematics you will have good mental dexterity and strong communication skills.  With a proven track record of excellent customer service, you will possess a natural ability to attend to our pet-owning clients with compassion and empathy and to treat their pets with care and dignity.


A full, clean UK driving licence and vehicle is essential. Driving licence (Category B) and ADR licence (classes 6.1, 6.2) would be advantageous, but not essential as training will be given.  Experience gained within a multi-drop delivery role, while also not essential, would again be advantageous.


This is a full-time, 40 hours per week, permanent position with a requirement to cover an on-call service on a rota system. Further details of this rota system will be provided at interview. 


Responsibilities include:

  • Collections of deceased pets and veterinary wastes from veterinary practices
  • Collecting deceased pets from owners' homes
  • Collecting deceased equine from stables, livery yards and paddocks
  • Cremating pet animals and equine and preparing ashes for packing
  • Assisting with the packing, checking and return of pets' ashes
  • Covering the On-Call Service on a rota system
  • Other ad-hoc duties as and when required


In addition to a salary of £10.50 per hour, you will receive a range of benefits including:

  • 33 days' annual leave (including Bank Holidays) 
  • Additional day's holiday for every full year worked (up to a maximum of 5 additional days)
  • Staff discount on veterinary products and services
  • Sharesave scheme
  • Company Pension Scheme
  • Access to great savings through Perk Box
