About this role

Cats Protection is the UK’s leading feline welfare charity and our vision is a world where every cat is treated with kindness and an understanding of its needs.

Cats are at the centre of everything we do and our objectives are: homing, neutering and educating people about cats and their care.

We help thousands of cats across the UK each year thanks to our network of dedicated volunteers, employees and supporters.

What can you expect to be doing? 

This is a really flexible role – you can choose what you’d like to get involved with:

– Face-to-face fundraising – organising or helping with fundraising events, running supermarket collections and fundraising stands, monitoring collection tins
– Online fundraising – setting up online appeals, increasing social media engagement to maximise funds raised
– Marketing – spreading the word about our fundraising activities, for example on social media and with the local press
– Completing administration – processing donations, sorting and recording donated goods, completing Gift Aid paperwork
– Championing our work – getting involved with developing new fundraising ideas and increasing community engagement

What are the benefits to you and the cats?  

You will develop new skills, expand your knowledge and make a significant contribution to improving the lives of cats and kittens by helping raise vital funds through fundraising activities. You will also meet new people, make new friends and be part of a dedicated group of volunteers. Whether you’d rather be out and about, or volunteering from your own home, there are so many ways to fundraise.

We’re looking for someone with:
– Good communication and interpersonal skills
– Willingness to be part of a team
– Good organisational skills (not essential)
– Flexible approach
– Knowledge of local community networks (would be an advantage)

Time expectation 

This is a flexible role that can fit around your other commitments. You’ll be part of a team all working together to raise vital funds while having fun in the process!

Support, guidance and keeping you safe  

At Cats Protection we believe our volunteers should be happy and confident in their roles. We provide support and guidance from our National Cat Centre and through our regional and local volunteer groups and teams. We offer engaging online and face-to-face training, expenses and have policies and processes to help volunteers get the most out of their time with us.

The wellbeing of our people is important and at Cats Protection we are committed to safeguarding children, adults at risk and all those that we come into contact with as part of our activities.
