Professional Dog Grooming Manager

Tweed Heads

Reference: 4084118

Lead our pack for a career that shines.

Highly experienced dog groomer!

Strong but sensitive, confident but calm. Exacting but empathetic. And as organised as a drill sergeant. These qualities don't usually go together. But you're a rare breed - and that's why you've forged such a strong career in Dog Grooming.

But now here's a new challenge. An opportunity to take the next step, put your best paw forward, and advance to new career frontiers in a unique and client-centred setting. We have an opportunity for a Professional Dog Grooming Manager to join our team. And it sounds like you'd be perfect.

We are Best Friends Pets, and since our inception in 2007, we've been doing things a little differently. Partnered up with animal shelters across Australia, we encourage our clients to Think Adoption First, and provide a range of products and services to keep all new many-legged Best Friends happy. So much more than just leashes and feed, we also offer a vet clinic and puppy pre-school. And of course, our fabulous in-house Grooming Salon. That's where you come in.

You'll love the opportunity to lend a guiding hand to our Salon operations, by:

  • Coaching, mentoring and assisting your team to improve and develop their skills
  • Overseeing stock, budgets and rosters
  • Performing grooms - you'll lead by example!
  • Fostering a culture of friendly, professional advice and top-notch customer service.

Your ability to be flexible with working days and times will stand you in excellent stead, as will your ability to comfortably lift up to 20kg of canine weight; after all, our clientele aren't exclusively Westies and Pugs!

We'd be kidding ourselves if we thought we could be as great as we are without a fantastic team, so your hard work will be rewarded. A full induction awaits, plus competitive salary in a friendly, supportive and learning-oriented environment.

And best of all, any furry friends of your own will also feel the love, with generous discounts offered on our pet products!
