Description

This qualification reflects the role of employees who work under supervision and in known routines but with a defined amount of responsibility and limited judgement.

An attendant is a person who is employed in a greyhound racing kennel and whose prime function is to care for the animals and to meet their individual needs of feeding, grooming, exercising, transporting and keeping the environment safe, clean and hygienic. Attendants work under the direction of a greyhound trainer or kennel supervisor but are also able to act autonomously in certain situations requiring solutions to a limited range of problems or working as part of a team.

It should be noted that duties involve caring for racing greyhounds that can easily injure themselves or their handlers. There is therefore a degree of responsibility as well as a duty of care involved in the work. There will be occasions when an attendant will be in sole charge of an animal in situations where a danger exists to the animal, the handler or the general public, such as exercising in public areas or leading on a racecourse.
