TWO roles below: full time manager and part time weekend cat nanny.


We are hiring a Full Time Manager.  As a Full Time Manager, you’ll be working 40 hours a week across 4 working days including weekends.

The role would suit someone who is looking to work with us and our amazing feline family on a long term basis, is passionate about hospitality and wants to create a memorable experience for visitors in a fast paced and extremely dynamic workplace.

Salary for this role is £32k per annum.

What’s the role like?  Well, it’s not playing with cats all day.  There’s some cat play, cat care, customer service and managing and developing a team of around 10 people.  You’re also overseeing a busy cafe and addressing day to day issues, ensuring high standards of cat care and welfare, and maintaining a clean, inviting and positive environment for humans and cats alike.

Some benefits of the role include a truly inclusive family environment where everybody is welcome, courses and training opportunities, a paid day off on your birthday after one year’s service, company sick pay after one year’s service, team social events and of course getting to know and love our feline family too.

If this sounds like you then we want you to:

Closing date is 5th July 2024.


We are also hiring a Part Time Weekend Cat Nanny.  As a Part Time Weekend Cat Nanny, you’ll be working an average 16 hours a week across 2 working days.  We will also consider two nannies each doing 8 hours on 1 working day.

The role would suit someone who is looking to work with us and our amazing feline family on a long term basis, is passionate about hospitality and wants to create a memorable experience for visitors in a fast paced and extremely dynamic workplace.

We pay the Real Living Wage, currently this is £12 per hour.

What’s the role like? Unfortunately it’s not playing with cats all day. There’s a bit of cat play, a lot of customer service, cleaning and cat care. You are there as the cats’ advocate, to make sure they’re safe and happy. As a nanny you need to ensure the cafe’s rules are adhered to whilst making sure guests feel welcome and comfortable: it can be a tricky balance. You should be confident around cats and handling them. We have incredibly high standards of cleaning and this is a big part of the role. An ideal candidate would be highly organised, good at using their initiative, comfortable enforcing house rules and motivated by what can be a physically demanding role. A strong grasp of social media is beneficial. Barista and/or cat care experience is a bonus, but not essential. You must have visited us already so if you haven’t visited then book a session before applying.  You must also live in Edinburgh or close by.

Some benefits of the role include a truly inclusive family environment where everybody is welcome, courses and training opportunities, a paid day off on your birthday after one year’s service, company sick pay after one year’s service, team social events and of course getting to know and love our feline family too.

If this sounds like you then this is what we want you to do:

Check out the application form here. Send us a video (no longer than 5 minutes) of you answering the questions in the application form. Send the video, together with a short cover letter to [email protected].

Closing date is 5th July 2024, we cannot accept applications after this date.

If you have previously applied you are welcome to apply again, we will always consider your application afresh.
