Celia Hammond Animal Trust
Lewisham, London, United KingdomWe are looking to expand our Lewisham Branch Homing Team and are seeking a cat enthusiast to join us. Our homing officers play a vital role in our rescue centres finding new homes for our rescued cats, assessing offers of homes and matching adopters to suitable cats.
Much of the role involves face to face contact with the public so the successful applicant must be comfortable with talking to a wide variety of people as well as being passionate about cats and their welfare. Our homing officers conduct initial phone interviews as well as carry out pre-adoption home visits with potentially suitable adopters to provide advice about caring for and settling in cats and kittens and assess suitability. A good knowledge of cats needs and behaviour is essential as much of the advice we provide to potential adopters is educational as we strive to improve the welfare of cats.
Assisting with cat introductions between adopters and suitable cats at Lewisham will also be part of the role.
Our homing staff come from a variety of backgrounds and relevant experience can include previous occupations such as cat fosterer, rescue centre volunteer, pet sitter, vet nurse etc. Full training alongside a current member of the team will be provided. Once fully trained the homing officer may also assist the Canning Town homing team.
We rehome domestic cats throughout South East and East London so a full driving licence and confidence in driving is needed as carrying out home visits will be a significant part of this role.
This role is 40 hours a week including weekends on a rota. To apply please email your CV and a covering letter explaining your interest in this role.
