Paw Haus RecruitmentRole: Waggy-tail makerZone: Doggy Daycare and Playzone

Paw Haus is designed with one thing front and centre in all we do – the happiness and ability for all dogs to thrive whilst with us. Started by a team of highly experienced professionals, including significant pet industry knowledge, experience, connections and understanding, we spotted an opportunity to bring a brand new idea to market: the PawHaus Play Zones. Headquartered in Scotland (where yes, we do experience a good amount of rain!), the idea of indoor Play Zones made a lot of sense to us – so we got on with making it happen. Reflecting upon what people told us they wanted, we also decided to offer our Doggy Day Care as well as a range of other services such as puppy training classes, birthday parties and events. With the best training available being offered, we also make sure that our team members with experience, and those starting out, have all they need to be the best in the world. We’re so obsessed with that in fact that we also offer the opportunity for our members of the team to share in our success. We know that everything we do is based upon a real team effort, so here at Paw Haus we are building an inclusive, friendly and positive culture – one where everyone is truly part of the team.
