Nose, Toes & Tails Pet Care, LLC is seeking fabulous new talent to  join our growing team of pet care professionals!  If you are an experienced pet sitter, caretaker, or pet owner…interested in a flexible, part-time work schedule…able to work weekends, evenings, and Holidays…then we’d love to hear from you!

We are looking for individuals that are willing to make a long-term commitment to this employment experience, to our team, and to our clients. Our mission is to provide clients with knowledgeable, consistent, and reliable care, no matter which team members they work with. Our goal is to nurture a professional, diverse, and committed group of professionals that enjoy working at Nose, Toes & Tails Pet Care.

Our employees receive:  

  • A pay rate that meets or exceeds local Living Wage criteria,

  • 100% of all Holiday premiums and tips (you’ve earned it!),

  • Inclusion in the business’s bonding and liability insurance coverage,

  • Education and cross-training opportunities,

  • Loads of snuggles and sloppy kisses from our furry clients,

  • Tons of gratitude and appreciation for a job well done,

  • Opportunities to grow with the company.

We believe that the first step to providing outstanding pet care is to hire a great team, and then support each member with educational resources, cross-training, and longevity incentives. We have chosen to ‘hire’ rather than ‘contract’** because we see invaluable benefits for our business, our clients, and our team members by employing a dedicated team of part-time and full-time professionals.

Ideally, the person we’re looking for will have:

  • A genuine respect and compassion for animals, along with the ongoing desire to care for them,

  • Positive customer service orientation (we also work with pet parents and each other),

  • At least 21 years of life experience/age, and eligible to work in the US,

  • Reside within our service area, which is within a 15-20 minute commute of our business mailing address (4711 Hope Valley Road, Suite 4F-622, Durham, NC 27707), 

  • Your own smartphone with a text, voice, and data plan,

  • An ability to use a variety of smartphone apps (all of our business tools are app/web-based and will be installed on your phone),

  • Responsiveness!  One of the biggest challenges with this gig is the dynamic schedule.  Everyone on the team needs to be highly responsive to incoming texts and emails for schedule alerts, changes, and opportunities,

  • A good driving record, and your own reliable and insured vehicle (capable of  safe driving in all kinds of weather), 

  • A level of fitness that allows you to comfortably walk for several hours a day, potentially manage large dogs (sometimes 2 at a time), and work outside in all kinds of unpredictable NC weather conditions.
