  • Description

    Description

    We are an NGO based in Hoi An, central Vietnam, and an extremely busy cat shelter which has found itself over capacity in recent months due to the floods and annual wet season. We work continuously to improve the welfare of cats here in Hoi An and strive to increase the compassion towards animals, as well as educate the local community on the importance of desexing and immunising pets. Over a year ago, we opened up our home as a Cat Cafe which has proven to be successful and is becoming an increasingly popular visitor attraction for tourists. The sole purpose of our cafe is to raise funds for the cats, in order to feed and maintain a secure lifestyle for them.

    Hoi An is UNESCO World Heritage site and a beautiful place to spend a month or two, as it is perfect to escape the hustle and bustle of the other cities.in Vietnam. It is also well known for its beaches and historic Old Town.

    In addition to our 3 workaway placements, we generally require four volunteers at a time.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Hoi An is the perfect location for anyone. You have a beautiful beach, romantic old town and lots to see during the day. It is fairly quiet, and not for those wanting to party every night….although a party can usually be found at the weekend. It is perfect for hiring a bicycle and scooter and exploring the local areas - from the beach, to the Old Town to the rice paddies and smaller local islands.

    Hoi An is also a food heaven for vegans and vegetarians, as there are a number of restaurants which cater well towards this diet.

    *️️️️KITCHEN MANAGER NEEDED STARTING End of February 2020*️️️️

    * SHELTER MANAGER STARTING IN JANUARY 2020*

    We have several different opportunities available at present. Please ensure you let us know what you're applying for when you message us.


    1) LONG TERM SHELTER MANAGERS FOR CAT SHELTER AND CAFE *️️️️️️️*️️️️️️️*️️️️️️️2020 START*️️️️️️️*️️️️️️️*️️️️️️️

    We are looking for two people to help manage our shelter and café for 6 months – 1 year (negotiable). The position will start different times this year to allow for training and handover from our current shelter managers.

    What will this involve?

    You will be working alongside Emma to assist her in the day to day running of the cat shelter and café. Emma had a baby in December 2017, so needs managers to aid her in keeping the shelter and café running to high standards. This will include duties such as managing volunteers, aiding in daily cleaning and feeding, supervising staff, basic care of cats and new rescues, helping the café staff, ensuring the property and café run to a strict standard and carrying out any day to day tasks that arise.

    What we require from you:

    Past experience working with animals, especially cats, in a sheltered environment will be beneficial and an important factor we will be considering. Experience working in hospitality would also be an advantage but not required as all training will be given. We operate at a high standard of care and especially in cleanliness. So we expect this level of standard to continue and require all staff and volunteers to be clean freaks too.
    Any additional skills will be extremely helpful such as being handy to aid in the shelter maintenance and garden, social media experiences, vet skills, etc.

    What we offer to you:

    This is a volunteer/work placement. We can offer you accommodation offsite, and any food on site whilst working. Any flights/visas or personal expenses you will cover yourselves. We will aid you in any way to live cheaply and on a budget, there are options to find extra teaching work online etc.


    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    2) VOLUNTEER POSITIONS

    We are continuously in search of animal lovers to help us out with our various tasks throughout the day. At the start and end of your working day, you will be involved in the cleaning of the shelter/house to prepare for the opening of the cafe.

    Tasks daily include:
    Cleaning out the kitten cages
    Cleaning the house - sweeping / mopping
    Cleaning the customer bathroom
    Sweeping leaves in the garden
    Clearing the cat litters and toilets
    Working in the kitchen during cafe hours
    Serving customers and assisting with the general cafe duties

    Most of the work will require you to help with the efficient running of the cafe, so we welcome anyone who has had experience working in cafes/restaurants. Our food menu is vegan, so we are always interested in discovering new recipes. However, we do also require people with good DIY skills as we often have small jobs on the grounds which need tending to. This could range from fixing fences to painting walls.

    We don't receive any government funds or support, we rely on feeding the cats and sheltering all the animals from kind donations and our own private jobs alone. Your help running the shelter and business will make a huge difference to the cats and future rescues.

    We require 3 weeks minimum stay with us. When volunteering with us, you will receive lunch and beverages.

    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    3) KITCHEN MANAGER/COOK - End of February 2020 Start

    We are in need of a Workawayer to help us run the kitchen for 3 months. We serve vegan food and drinks to our customers in the cafe, so require someone with the confidence to learn and cook our dishes. In addition to this, we would expect you to assist with the cleaning of the kitchen on a daily basis, and also the collection of the groceries at the start of each day. Training will be provided! The cafe is not overly busy, but the work can be demanding at times. Help will be given by our volunteers when necessary.
