Marketing and Campaigns Manager Job Description


Living Wage Employer

In 2019 Edinburgh Dog and Cat Home became a living wage employer, Scotland’s first Animal Welfare organisation to take this prestigious title. The Living Wage commitment will see everyone working at the Home, receive a minimum hourly wage of £9.30. This rate is significantly higher than the statutory minimum for over 25s of £8.21 per hour.

Since joining the scheme the Home has picked up Best Newcomer at the 2019 Living Wage Awards, recognising its commitment to its staff  and their understanding that happy people mean happy animals.

Show The Salary

Show The Salary was born out of frustration at the lack of action being taken to address pay gaps and inequality in the charity sector. At the heart of the campaign is a commitment to fairness and equity, and to the people with lived experience of the impact of salary secrecy.

The Home fully supports this campaign and wants to be part of something that helps tackle discrimination and inequality.

Our Vision: To create a community where unwanted and mistreated animals are given a voice and a second chance for a happy and forever home; and where anybody who can, will act to advocate for animals still suffering.
