Careers

Our overarching purpose at RSPCA NSW is to help people help animals. In everything we do, we believe this needs to be at the forefront of our minds. We believe that if we can teach people how to prevent cruelty in the first place, we will reduce the number of animals that need our help, improving animal welfare outcomes. This means we need people who are keen to work with us to achieve that, no matter what their role is.

At RSPCA NSW, we always look for the best person for the job. Passion and love for animals is certainly important, but education and experience are vital too. We also value all the so-called soft skills, such as the ability to prioritise, use initiative and operate as a team player. Because of this, our recruitment process involves a variety of steps, including interviews, skills and medical assessments, and a number of other checks, including reference checks. We therefore ask that you please consult the selection criteria related to the job you would like to apply for, and ensure you address this in your application.

We are very privileged at RSPCA NSW to receive so many applications and expressions of interest every week from enthusiastic and dedicated people who love animals. Because of this, it is unfortunately not always possible for us to contact every applicant.

How you can help

Looking to adopt? Search now for dogs, cats and other pets available for rehoming at your local RSPCA shelter.

RSPCA has joined forces with Bendigo Bank and Visa to create an exciting range of credit cards that offer Australians a way to help animals in need.

Each year, over 40,000 animals turn to RSPCA NSW for help. Every donation from you is vital in rescuing and caring for them.
