Kennel Club Work Experience

Our Kennel Club work experience programme is for enthusiastic, bright and energetic Young Kennel Club members over 16 years who would like to build a career in the dog world and learn valuable work skills. It’s simple - you come and have a work placement in one of our departments over the summer months. Our head office is based in Central London, and the placements are offered to members that can commute to London or that have someone to stay with.

What are we offering?

We have placements, in the Summer, everywhere from Marketing and Public Relations to Health and Breeder Services. We can’t pay you – but it is a great experience and you will be making some good working contacts for the future and invaluable experience to build your confidence in the working world. We have successfully seen Young Kennel Members go on to work within the dog world and even at the Kennel Club, all from taking part in our Kennel Club work experience programme.

How does it work?

All roles are based in the Kennel Club London office for a period of 1-2 weeks during July and August. Members must be 16 years or over and the Kennel Club will contribute towards your travel costs (within reasonable distance). Applications have now closed for this year, however, you can email the HR department to find out about any current job opportunities.
