Leonii joined our traineeship programme as she’d been looking for an opportunity to work with animals, something she has always enjoyed doing with previous experience caring for horses. We found her a work-experience placement with doggie daycare and grooming parlour The Barking Lott, and she’s been having the time of her life!
Here’s what Leonii had to say about the traineeship programme:
Why did you decide to do a traineeship?
I wanted experience working with animals, and I wouldn’t want to do anything else. It’s just really hard to get hands-on experience working with animals because no one is really offering it. So I’ve been really lucky to find out about Profound’s traineeship programme.
What’s your favourite bit about the programme?
Everything! I get to work with my animals - what couldn’t you love about dogs?
What advice would you give to someone thinking about doing a traineeship?
Just go for it because you never know what will happen. With me being a bit older than most trainees I didn’t think I’d ever get a chance to start working in my dream career. I’m absolutely over the moon I’ve been given the opportunity.
