Work for the RSPCAWorking with the RSPCA

Many people who care about animals consider turning their passion into a career, and enquire about coming to work at the RSPCA. While most people are familiar with our shelter staff and uniformed inspectors, there are actually a wide range of jobs available at the RSPCA.

For example, state and territory RSPCA Member Societies also have staff working in the areas of communications, marketing, management and administration.

In addition to these fields, the RSPCA Australia national office in Canberra also employs staff for its Approved Farming Scheme and Animal Welfare Science sections.

Volunteer with the RSPCAVolunteering with the RSPCA

In addition to our paid workforce, our volunteers are an integral part of all levels of RSPCA operations - from National and State Councils to vets, customer service assistants, animal attendants, gardeners and everything in between.

Volunteers assist in many ways including caring for animals in the shelters, assisting with administrative tasks and helping out in our shopfronts. Many more help out with special events, fundraising and promotions that take place throughout the year.

The RSPCA could not function at such a high standard without the vital assistance of its volunteers. If you would like more information about becoming a volunteer please get in touch with your local RSPCA.
