We are seeking an enthusiastic individual with a commitment to animal welfare to join our team as Volunteer Team Leader at our busy North London Centre.
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 Volunteer Team Leader you will promote and co-ordinate volunteering for the centre. You will develop contacts internally and externally e.g. with volunteers, employees, and the wider Volunteering Department. You will recruit, train, schedule and support a team of diverse volunteers to enhance the smooth running of the Centre service in all aspects of its work.
Our successful candidate will be highly motivated with previous experience of managing a team of volunteers. You will have excellent interpersonal, customer service and organisational skills and ideally have a background working within an animal welfare environment.
