Cats Protection is the UK's leading feline welfare charity. We now help around 190,000 cats and kittens through our network of over 250 volunteer-run branches and 34 adoption centres and homing centres.
As a Community Neutering Officer, you will be involved in helping to deliver the regional neutering projects and initiatives to local communities. This can 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.
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.
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.
In common with all posts, ensuring compliance with Cats Protection's policies and procedures, statutory obligations and best practice, and to undertake such other duties as may be reasonably required by the Chief Executive.
Closing Date: 13 February 2019
Interview Date: 26 and 27 February 2019 - Belfast
