A branded Cats Protection van will be provided due to it being a requirement of the role. The van is an integral part of building good community relations and high visibility in the area you will be working. It's also used for transporting cats to Centres, local vets, carrying traps, resources for community events etc. A car allowance is not an option due to the reasons mentioned above. You will need to have a full UK driving licence.
We are seeking a committed and enthusiastic individual to join our successful Neutering team on a fixed term basis as a Community Neutering Officer covering South East London.
Cats Protection is the UK's leading feline welfare charity with a nationwide network of centres, volunteer-run branches and charity shops. During 2019 we helped around 191,000 cats and kittens, an average of 520 per day.
Community Neutering makes a real difference to the cats and kittens helping them to lead happier and healthier lives. Our subsidised neutering campaigns provide financial assistance to much loved pets as well as strays and ferals who are not lucky enough to have an owner to care for them. All of our projects have human behaviour change principles embedded within them and this is an important measurement of our work.
As a Community Neutering Officer, you will be involved in helping to deliver the regional neutering projects and initiatives to local communities. This will include working with community and social groups, attending regular community meetings and delivering talks and presentations. You will be recruiting volunteers and supporting them with projects in their communities whilst managing the progress of both individual areas and whole projects. The main focus is raising awareness of the importance of neutering, which is key as part of responsible pet ownership.
You will need to have excellent organisational skills, initiative and the ability to engage with people and communities at all levels. You will be a strong self-starter with a passion for helping cats in need with a positive attitude. You will have experience with working within communities or social enterprises and developing relationships with different types of community groups. An animal science or welfare background is also desirable but not essential. You will need a full UK driving licence.
