About the Cotswolds Dogs & Cats Home

The RSPCA Cotswolds, Gloucester & District Branch has been providing support and care to the most vulnerable animals in our community for over eighty years.  In 2016 we completed the build of the Cotswolds Dogs & Cats Home and the centre became operational in September 2016.  Our vision is that no abused, neglected or abandoned animal in our community is without a safe space.

To support our rehoming centre, we have ten busy charity shops located throughout the South Cotswolds and we are continuing to grow our retail operation. We also work hard at generating funds through generous donations, grants and attendance at our annual events.

The Finance Administrator role will be working closely with the Resource Manager to support the Charity’s operations, fifty employed staff and over two hundred dedicated volunteers. As the charity continues to grow, the demand for administrative and organisational support has grown too. The Finance Administrator is a key member of the support function, the post-holder will be a highly organised, independent worker who is pro-active, tenacious and a proven completer-finisher.
