Are you passionate about animal welfare and eager to make a difference in your community in a friendly and supportive environment where your contributions will make a meaningful impact?

Charity People are delighted to be working with RSPCA Northamptonshire, and small and independent branch of the RSPCA, to recruit a Community Welfare Hub Coordinator.

RSPCA Northamptonshire carries out vital work to save animals that have been neglected, mistreated, or subjected to cruelty, working with local vets to ensure that each animal receives the treatment they need for injuries or health problems, and educating about responsible pet ownership. The charity also ensures all animals are vaccinated, microchipped, neutered, flea and worm treated before being rehomed. All funds are raised through charity shops, fundraising events, grants, and public donations.

The Community Welfare Hub Coordinator will be responsible for the daily management of the RSPCA Community Hub in Rushen, support the welfare outreach work in the local community, and care for animals before they move int foster care. Full training will be provided.

Key responsibilities

• You will lead community engagement efforts, educating and supporting the public on welfare advice and services.
• You will oversee the care of animals temporarily housed at the Hub before they go into foster care, ensuring National RSPCA Standards are met.
• You will assist with the daily management and operation of the Community Hub, working closely with Hub team members and volunteers, including recruiting, training, and supervising Hub volunteers, ensuring a well-coordinated and effective team.
• You will manage the welfare clinic diary, maintain the clinic room, and ensure it is well-stocked, as well as ensure compliance with all health and safety regulations.
• You will assist with operations, such as welfare events, manage the availability of fundraising materials and event equipment, and handle branch donations.

The Community Welfare Hub Coordinator will have a passion for animals and knowledge of the RSPCA’s mission and values. The successful candidate will have excellent verbal and written communication skills with the ability to manage workload independently and a dedicated work ethic. You will have a sense of humour and will be a strong team player. Knowledge of the branch and its welfare work would be advantageous, but full training would be provided.

You would be joining a supportive and professional working environment. The role is based at the Community Hub in Rushton with travel to other sites in Daventry and Brixworth in Northamptonshire. Transport for work is reimbursed in line with the staff expenses policy. There will be some weekend work and you will be part of a rota which will be around 1 day a weekend per month. The role is full time, 35 hours per week, or could be split between two colleagues, each working part time, with one responsible for the animal welfare side of the role and the other the management of the community hub. This would be 15-20 per week per role and the salary would be pro rata.

If you would like the chance to be part of a team dedicated to animal welfare, education and prevention, providing animals with their second chance in life, and have a self-starter attitude and a genuine interest in animal welfare, we would be delighted to hear from you.
