Animal Charities employ many staff and there are many different types of jobs working for animal charities. Roles working for an animal charity can include hands-on kennel and cattery work, re-homing jobs, campaigning, office jobs as well as front line cruelty prevention and animal rescue and rehabilitation.
Most animal charities are extremely busy places and they require staff who are passionate about animal welfare and have relevant training. We have developed several animal charity courses, designed to provide knowledge for people wanting to enter the animal charity sector, as well as for animal charity staff who are required to undertake CPD.
We offer accredited Diploma and Certificate courses specifically designed to improve employment and career prospects. These courses are affordable and can be studied at the same time as working, volunteering or job hunting.

Rescue and Rehabilitation as well as Cruelty Prevention form an increasing aspect of the work carried out by Animal Charities around the world. Unfortunately, despite the efforts of many organisations, there is still a lot of animal cruelty and suffering and for this reason, there are a great many animal charities and many staff employed to deal with cruelty prevention and with the rescue, care, rehabilitation and rehoming of animals.
There are several front line animal jobs dealing with disasters affecting animals (man-made and natural), where animals require rescue and emergency assistance, there are also careers dealing with the stray and feral cat and dog populations in order to prevent suffering and control numbers and many charities deal with the trapping and neutering of stray animals, as well as the management of Animal Hoarding cases. We offer courses as training specifically for working in these types of roles dealing with these complex and specialised animal welfare issues.
Animal Charities are funded entirely through donations from the public and they have to be managed efficiently in order to provide the best possible value for money whilst ensuring high standards of animal care and welfare. Animal Charities require managers and supervisors to oversee the entire charity as well as the various sections of the operation.
Animal Charities offer a great many different types of jobs and other roles include: Animal Re-homer, Receptionist, Pet Bereavement Counsellor and Animal Driver.
There are several Animal Charities that don't run animal homes and instead work to campaign about the many animal welfare issues such as: Intensive farming, inhumane slaughtering, hunting, the exotic pet trade, dog fighting, international animal welfare problems, the overpopulation of unwanted companion animals, animals used for entertainment, etc. We offer an Animal Campaigning Diploma course for careers working for Animal Campaigning Charities.
In addition to all the above roles, Animal Charities also employ veterinary staff. We offer several veterinary courses, including the ABC Awards Animal Nursing Certificate.
