Dubai Kennels & Cattery is the worst place in the world to work. The boss is intolerable. The staff are just mean. Most of us can only just barely get along with animals. Pay is terrible and only the owner of the company can afford fresh milk and cereal for morning breakfasts. No one is allowed annual leave and public holidays are considered an offence to the profit motive.
But it doesn't stop there!
The facility we work in has beautiful trees and other flora all over the place... but they're all artificial because the company doesn't want to spend the money on watering.
We have a fleet of vehicles for animal transport that look very smart but in fact the engines have been removed in favour of a team of hamsters under the hood... think of the savings on petrol!
Our computers are still running Windows 95 and instead of Microsoft Office, we employ ball-point pens, paper and finger-staining carbon sheets.
We have nice looking DKC shirts for all the staff, but all the staff get only one each and are required to wash and iron them every single day before coming to work.
We could go on...

Yet somehow... somehow... we don't know how... but somehow... we've got lots of staff who have been here with us for years! In fact, we have more staff who have been with DKC for more than 5 years than we do those who have been with us for less than 2... and quite a few who have been with us since Dubai was still mostly desert.
We're a busy, busy, busy place with thousands and thousands of animals coming into our care or being relocated around the world every single year. And our customers seem unhappy with us only occasionally. Go figure!
So, if you're looking for an unusual place to work... if you want to work hard... if you love animals and if they generally love you back... and if you instinctively understand and want an informal but very professional place to spend your days and earn your daily bread, then we might just be the place for you.
Sorry but we're not hiring right now.
..you are uniquely and especially skilled and experienced in the care-management and/or international relocations of all types of animal, and can therefore bring out-of-the-ordinary and undoubted significant value and leadership to our business and our people, then we would indeed love to hear from you. But beware!! We've been doing this for a long long time, so you would have to be REALLY special to meet that criteria! Are you?
