At Cats Protection, we look after our people.

We offer competitive salaries and an attractive package of benefits, designed to support the health and wellbeing of everyone who works for us. It is important we attract and retain the best people to deliver our work and rewarding our people with appropriate salaries is an essential ingredient in helping us to achieve this.

While working for Cats Protection, your wellbeing is important to us – we have a number of benefits in place to support you and your family.

Annual leave

We value our time away from work as an important part of maintaining work-life balance. Our annual leave allowance is among the best in the sector, beginning at 25 days per year, plus any bank holidays (pro-rated for part-timers).

Free eye tests

Working in partnership with Specsavers, we’ll make your glasses for screen work more affordable and fulfil our legal obligations to look after your eyesight.

Health benefits

We offer a range of health benefits designed to help you live and work well including private health care (currently with BUPA).


We want to help you make plans and feel secure about your future. You’ll join our defined contribution pension scheme and we’ll pay contributions into your fund depending on the amount you choose to pay in.

Pension salary exchange – new from April 2022

We've recently introduced pension salary exchange (PSE) to further improve our employee benefits. PSE is a way of making pension contributions which, for the majority of employees, saves them money compared to standard pension contributions arrangements. This is because employees could pay less National Insurance contributions through PSE.

Life assurance

Should the worst happen, life assurance will give your loved ones some peace of mind.

Employee Assistance Programme 

Our Employee Assistance Programme provides a source of confidential and independent advice to help you deal with life’s ups and downs. Our free 24-hour helpline is designed to help you deal with both personal and professional problems.

Additional benefits

We look after your pet too with discounted pet insurance with Petplan UK, and in some roles, we provide company vans.
