Animal lover? We have just the role for you

Do you love dogs? Want to get paid for looking after them? Well, we could have the perfect role for you as a dog sitter. There’s one catch, however…

Lincolnshire Live reports the role in question, advertised on job site, requires the successful candidate to not only take care of seven dogs in total, but also five cats, two geese and some chickens for good measure.

So if this role sounds like it’s for you, you’ll need to get your application bark to them in record quick time, as the closing date for the post is next Tuesday (17 October).

However, don’t start settling in for the long term. The Grantham-based role pays between £13 and £17 an hour and is for just 10 days while the animals’ owners are on their hols.
