We are seeking a passionate individual with a commitment to animal welfare to join our team of Cat Care Assistants at our busy National Cat Adoption Centre in Chelwood Gate.
Cats Protection is the UK’s leading feline welfare charity with a nationwide network of adoption and homing centres, volunteer-run branches and charity shops. During 2018 we helped around 184,000 cats and kittens, an average of 500 per day.
Our adoption and homing centres care for thousands of cats each year until they are able to find a loving new home. In 2018, 41,000 cats were rehomed and 3,000 more reunited with their owners. This success would not be possible without our dedicated team of employees and volunteers. Dealing with thousands of visitors each month, our centres are the face of Cats Protection and we pride ourselves on our employees providing the very best in animal welfare and customer service.
As a Cat Care Assistant, you will work to meet Cats Protections’ aims and values by providing first class care for the cats in our centres. You will be responsible for cleaning the sleeping quarters, feeding cats and taking care of specific individual needs. You will respond to enquiries from the general public, advise and educate potential new owners in the care and welfare of their cats.
Our successful candidate will be an excellent communicator with strong organisational skills. A strong, flexible team player, you'll have lots of energy teamed with a positive upbeat attitude. Experience working with or handling cats is desirable and a full, manual driving license is essential.
