Join our team delivering change for Greece’s cats


We are implementing an ambitious project designed to improve the health and welfare of cats on the islands of Paros & Antiparos. 

Working with local animal welfare groups and veterinary practices in collaboration with the island’s two municipalities and with the support of Battersea Dogs and Cats Home the project aims to sterilize, vaccinate and microchip at least 80% of the islands free roaming cats and ensure that the cats are fed and cared for and that ill or injured cats have access to veterinary care.  

We aspire for the project to be sustainable, to demonstrate its impact and to contribute to an evidence base that can inform our and other organisations’ policies and programmes.  

We are consequently building our team to deliver on two important areas of work. 

The first is focused on increasing the understanding of, and commitment to, community-based cat care and management of residents and visitors to the island. 

The second is collecting accurate and timely data on cat numbers, location and condition. We are therefore recruiting for two newly created roles that will help us deliver these important areas of work.

Communications, Engagement and Education Lead 

This post will lead the design, implementation and evaluation of a strategy to increase the understanding of and commitment to, among residents and visitors to the islands of Paros & Antiparos, community-based cat care and management. 

We are looking for someone who wants to use their skills and experience in communication, community development and education to deliver improvements in cat welfare by improving peoples’ knowledge and influencing their attitudes and behaviours.

Cat Counting and Monitoring Lead 

This post will work with our staff and partners on the island to collect reliable and timely information on the number of cats, their locations and condition.  

This is a hands-on role that will involve travelling across both islands, visiting cat colonies and ensuring what you find is reported and shared and used to inform the programme. 

We are looking for someone who combines a love of cats, attention to detail and the patience to find, count and monitor cat colonies.

The successful candidates will need to be based on Paros or Antiparos. If applicants don’t already live on one of the islands they will need to move, so prospective applicants should establish the feasibility of doing so. 

Working languages  

Day to day communication across our international team is in English. However, the project is being implemented on the Greek islands of Paros and Antiparos so our preference is for fluent speakers of both English and Greek.
