Staff benefits

There are many reasons why Cats Protection is a great place to work. And we recognise it’s important to you too. That’s why we look after our people and offer a range of schemes and benefits to recognise the contribution you make to our charity.

Your financial health


To help you plan and save for your future, you’ll be automatically enrolled into our Group Personal pension scheme.

Life assurance

From Day One, you’ll automatically receive a lump sum death in service benefit for your dependants in the event of your death.

Your health & wellbeing

Your health and wellbeing means everything to us. That’s why we have a number of schemes and benefits in place to support you. As well as free eye tests, we offer:

Annual leave

You’ll enjoy between 25 and 30 days holiday each year, plus any bank holidays based on your length of service (pro-rated for part-timers).

Employee Assistance Programme (EAP)

Our free and confidential EAP is a 24-hour helpline designed to help you deal with personal and professional problems affecting your home or work life, health and general wellbeing.

Private medical insurance

We offer private healthcare cover (currently with BUPA), on successful completion of your probation period for you and at a reduced rate for your dependants.


As part of your BUPA package, you’ll receive this additional benefit, which covers excess payments and other health benefits. You can opt to join Medicash only if you prefer and you may increase your level of cover at an additional cost.


You can join our Healthcare cash plan to ensure your everyday healthcare costs are covered. Membership may be extended to partners at an additional cost, whilst children are covered free.

And your pet's health

Pet plan insurance

As a Cats Protection employee, you’ll be eligible to 20% off Pet Plan Pet Insurance.
