Join the Network

As we count down to the next General Election and Scottish Referendum, there’s never been a more interesting time to play a key public affairs role for Battersea Dogs & Cats Home. The charity is a central player within the animal welfare and third sector and addresses the pressing issue of dog control and anti-social behaviour with dogs.

Battersea aims never to turn away a dog or cat that needs our help. We reunite lost dogs and cats with their owners, care for them until we can find them new homes, and educate the public about responsible pet ownership. Every year we take in around 9,000 dogs and cats to our sites in London, Berkshire and Kent.

In this crucial management role, you’ll develop and progress a strategic programme to engage politicians and political stakeholders across national, local and devolved administrations. You’ll be an ambassador for the Home’s vital work on key policy issues, including stray dogs, dangerous dogs, dog legislation and responsible ownership, as well as researching and identifying trends to support our position.
An outstanding communicator with superb relationship-building skills, you must also have a strong public affairs track record, including a thorough understanding of Parliamentary procedures and considerable experience of writing policy.

Interviews will be held on 6 December 2013. Second round interviews will be held on 17 December 2013.
