Are you a skilled multi-channel fundraiser or marketeer that would love to create a powerful, positive difference to the lives of cats and their owners across the UK? We are currently recruiting for a Senior Cat Guardians Marketing Officer to join our Legacies & In Memory team. You will join us working 35 hours per week and in return you will receive a competitive salary of up to £37,165.28 per annum plus excellent benefits.
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 2020, despite all the challenges, we helped 126,000 cats and kittens. That's the equivalent of around 345 cats a day!
While the physical provision of the Cat Guardians service is a core part of our charitable operations, the nature of promoting it and stewarding individuals during their lifetime means the role itself forms a key part of the Legacy, Cat Guardians and In Memory team, which sits within our Marketing and Income Generation directorate. Legacy and In Memory fundraising is our largest income stream (£33.7m in 2020) and accounts for nearly half of the income we receive every year, with the Cat Guardians service driving significant growth in the number of individuals joining or contributing to those programmes on an annual basis.
