The Association of Dogs & Cats Homes is the dynamic and growing membership body for the dog and cat rescue and rehoming sector across the British Isles. Our members range in size and scale, from the largest charities to some of the smallest volunteer run organisations.

Over the past five years ADCH has embarked on its biggest period of growth and transformation in its 33 year history. This is an exciting time as our membership looks set to increase significantly and our remit expand. There are currently multiple, national projects in progress.

About the Role

This is a pivotal role for the ADCH at an important time in our history. Working with the Chair and Trustees and Association Manager,  we are seeking to appoint a highly talented Member & Administration Manager to support the ADCH achieve its key strategic objectives and operational delivery plans, working directly with our members, helping us to deliver the best possible service to them and playing a key role in the recruitment of new members. This role will also manage the wider communication of the ADCH through our newsletters, forum, website and social media, and managing the administration of ADCH Know How, ADCH's e-learning platform as well as ensuring the efficient and effective administration of the ADCH’s day-to-day business.

If you have a passion for making a difference for animals, like working with people that are dynamic and energetic and are looking for a busy and exciting position with lots of autonomy and responsibility, then this might be the role for you !

The role can be home based or work from Battersea Dogs & Cats Home in London. Some travel around the British Isles will be necessary to attend ADCH meetings, conferences and to visit members.

  • 28 days of annual leave (plus 8 days paid public holidays) per year
  • Generous pension contributions – up to 10% employer contribution
