We know our success can’t happen without the collective effort of our people. That’s why we’ll make sure you are fairly rewarded for your hard work, both financially and through our range of benefits.

At Cats Protection, your wellbeing is as important to us as it is to you. As a movement of people championing the welfare of cats, making sure we look after the welfare of our people, and ensuring they are protected and cared for, is equally important.

Our benefits are here to support you and your family and to show our appreciation for the work you do. They enable you to lead the life you want and protect what’s important to you.


Taking time away from work is important for our good mental health and wellbeing. Holiday entitlement starts at 25 days (plus bank holidays) increasing to 30 days maximum with length of service (pro-rated based on hours of work).

Occupational sick pay

We know there’ll be times when you can’t come to work because you’re ill. We want to support and help you come back to work as soon as you can. We’ll pay up to eight weeks’ sick pay in any year if you qualify.

Private healthcare

Our private healthcare scheme is with our chosen partner, Bupa. We provide private healthcare to give you peace of mind that your healthcare needs will be met when most needed.

Bupa Everyday rewards

Featuring discounts from some of the UK’s biggest names, this offers benefits from big brand savings all year long. And it’s completely free to join – whether a member of Bupa or not.

Health cash plan

To help you cover the cost of everyday needs, we offer a health cash plan through our chosen provider, Health Shield.

Employee Assistance Programme

We all need a little support and guidance from time to time. Our Employee Assistance Programme, Bupa Healthy Minds, provides confidential help and personalised advice day or night.

Free eye tests

We’re registered with Specsavers Corporate Eye Care Scheme. If you work in front of a screen for more than three hours a day each week, you are eligible for a free display screen equipment (DSE) eye care voucher.

The eye care voucher entitles you to a free eye examination and if needed, a free pair of single vision prescription lens glasses.


We want to help you make plans and feel secure about the 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

Pension salary exchange is a way of making pension contributions which, for most employees, saves you money compared to standard pension contributions arrangements.

Employees can agree to reduce their basic salary in exchange for an equivalent increase in pension contribution from Cats Protection. As a result of the reduction in salary, there is a National Insurance saving for you.

Salary Finance

Financial wellbeing is an important part of taking care of your mental health. We want to help you become financially healthy and secure, and offer a range of benefits via Salary Finance.

These include affordable loans repaid through salary; advanced earned pay; simple savings accounts including the government-backed help to save scheme and free financial education.

Life assurance

Life can be unpredictable. Cats Protection offers all employees death-in-service life assurance giving you and your loved ones peace of mind. In the event of your death, a lump sum will be paid to your chosen dependants so that financial commitments you might have can be taken care of when you’re not around.

And we haven’t forgotten your pets’ health!

You can get 20% off your Petplan pet insurance as a Cats Protection employee.
