Post: Area Retail Manager

Borders Pet Rescue is a long-established animal welfare charity that cares for animals in need and finds them suitable loving new homes. We also work to encourage responsible pet ownership. Since becoming a registered charity 33 years ago we have re-homed thousands of dogs, cats, rabbits, guinea pigs, hedgehogs and exotics throughout the Scottish Borders and beyond.

Our four charity shops in Galashiels, Duns, Hawick and Kelso, play a key part in helping to fund the day-to-day operating costs of the Rescue Centre at Earlston. They provide a focal point for the local communities they serve, helping to promote the charity and our vital work. The ambition is for our shops to generate more commercial income, including the development of our BPR online shop, to support future plans for our Rescue Centre.
