We are recruiting a Part-Time Branch Assistant to work 15 hours over 3 days (Monday – Friday) with flexibility for additional hours including occasional evenings and weekends.
Are you seeking an interesting, varied part-time role for a cause you care about? Do you have a can-do attitude and a desire to make a difference? If so, this unique opportunity to join the RSPCA Suffolk Central Branch team could be for you.
RSPCA Suffolk Central is looking for an organised, helpful, and efficient individual to support our fundraising and administration team with both practical and admin tasks.
Your excellent customer service skills and can-do attitude will mean you love to help others and thrive on getting things done. From adding supporter information to our database to organising equipment for fundraising events, and filing documents, this role will be varied and rewarding.
You will work at our Animal Centre in Martlesham, supporting your colleagues in both routine and ad hoc tasks. You will be a confident IT user, ideally with some database experience, and happy to learn new systems. You will be flexible, adaptable, and happy to juggle tasks and work to deadlines.
As well as desk-based tasks, you will help with practical activities such as loading vans for events and providing tours of our Animal Centre to donors. You will therefore have excellent customer service skills and be prepared to get stuck in wherever needed.
You will represent the Branch through face-to-face and written communications, so you will have excellent communication skills and a passion for our work.
This is a fixed-term part-time position initially for six months, with scope for additional hours at weekends to represent the Branch at events, and the potential for the role to be made permanent in the future.
Please ensure you include a covering letter as well as your CV when applying.
Applications are accepted via Indeed.com – please click here or email to the Operations Administrator Kate Grimwood on email@example.com
Closing date 5pm on Friday 1st March 2024
Please note that applicants will be screened and invited to interview on a rolling basis, and the post may be closed before the closing date if a suitable candidate is found.
Many thanks to all the quizzers and volunteers who helped raise a magnificent £812 at our quiz night hosted by The Woolpack in Ipswich on Sunday 11 February.
It was a sell out night, with the winning team ‘Cats and Dogs’ taking the honours and winning bottles of Prosecco kindly donated by Punch Pubs.
Many thanks to Will and the whole team at The Woolpack for being such kind and generous hosts, Brian for stepping up to be quiz master (and writing questions); Sarah and Fran for kindly volunteering to set up, run the raffle and generally be amazing helpers; and Terry for providing the Geography questions! The whole branch team helped in writing a variety of the question rounds – so thanks to everyone involved.
Big thanks also to the companies that kindly donated such amazing raffle prizes – Ufford Park Resort, Dial Lane Books, The New Wolsey Theatre and Artisan Savant florists. The fundraising total wouldn’t have been as high without your generosity.https://artisansavant.co.uk/https://www.wolseytheatre.co.uk/
Keep an eye on our website for details of more quizzes later in the year and if you would like to help out at any of our events, please contact Jane on 07592 517836 or via firstname.lastname@example.org
Without the hard work and enthusiasm of our volunteers, we would not be able to help the number of animals and families with pets that we do. Please consider joining our volunteer team, no matter how many or few hours you feel you can give, especially in 2024, our 200th anniversary year.
Chilli the pug came to us through no fault of her own.
She is a very sweet and excitable little girl, who is so full of beans. She enjoys being in the company of her favourite people and loves a quick game of fetch with her favourite stuffed toys.
Chilli will need an operation once she is settled in her new home for bilateral luxating patella, and potential BOAS surgery. Currently these conditions mean Chilli is unable to walk for long and she struggles with her breathing, which can be distressing for her and her new owners.
If you are able to donate any amount to help us cover the costs of the veterinary bill which will be at least £3,000*, we would be very grateful. You can donate via Just Giving here.
Having this operation will means that Chilli will be able to begin to live a life free of health issues, with a wonderful new family – something she throughly deserves.
If you are interested in adopting Chilli, do please get in touch with our team on 0300 999 7321.
*Any money raised in excess of what is needed will be used to cover other veterinary treatment that the animals in our care require.
