Head of Reward

We’re delighted that you are considering making an application for this exciting role. It’s a wonderful chance to play your part in an organisation that holds a very special place in the heart of all those concerned with animal welfare, both across the UK and beyond.

Our Society is one of the longest-established in the charity sector, and we're proud of having delivered our valuable work for nearly 200 unbroken years. We investigate nearly 150,000 cases of alleged animal cruelty every year, helping to prevent continued suffering for, and improve the lives of, many thousands of animals. In recent years, we’ve also made meaningful progress in addressing the relationship between the abuse of family and animals; a connection first identified by William Wilberforce, one of our founders.

Today, we are a very significant national organisation, and our numbers are impressive: a staff of nearly 1700, 160 affiliated branches across England and Wales, turnover of around £140m and assets of over £200m. In such a complex, high-profile organisation, effective and motivational people leadership is vital. We always aim to be an employer that maintains exceptional standards of performance, grows and develops employees, and attracts and inspires volunteers.

We are looking for a new Head of Reward to help us make the RSPCA the very best place to build your career. The role will be critical to the People and Culture Leadership team, developing the delivery of Reward and Recognition strategies, policies and processes which in turn enable us to help more animals, everyday.

Together, we’ll continue to work for a world in which animals are respected and treated with compassion; in which cruelty is prevented and suffering alleviated.

I look forward to receiving your application.
