Leading cat charity appoints new director

Cats Protection has appointed a new Advocacy and Influence Director as the charity continues to grow its ambitions and increase its impact on cat welfare.
Jeff Knott is currently Director of Policy and Advocacy at RSPB and will move to his new role on 1 May.
He will lead the charity’s newly formed Advocacy and Influence directorate and will be part of the Senior Leadership team, reporting to Chief Executive John May.
“We’re really looking forward to welcoming Jeff to lead our new directorate,” said John. “We’re looking to create change that will have a long-term impact on cat welfare and society and Jeff brings with him a wealth of knowledge and experience which will help build on our reach and influence with governments, influencers and the general public across the UK.”
Previous roles Jeff has held at RSPB include Operations Director for Central and Eastern England and Head of Nature Policy.
Having spent the last 16 years working in nature conservation, he says he’s excited to make this move to help give cats a voice.
“One of the best things about working for a charity is how dedicated everyone is to the cause,” said Jeff. “There’s nothing more energising than spending time with passionate people and I’m really looking forward to supporting Cats Protection in delivering our mission. I’ve admired the organisation for a long time and I’m hugely excited to join the team.”

Jeff currently lives in Huntingdon with his family, which includes their 14-year-old tortoiseshell cat called Pumpkin.
