The Governing Council of the Cat Fancy

The UK's Premier Registration body


GCCF is the Premier registration body for Cats in the UK.

GCCF has more than 150 member clubs, licences more than 150 cat shows per year and registers and transfers over 25,000 pedigree cats per year.


The Governing Council of the Cat Fancy is a Not for Profit organisation, founded in 1910. The Organisation supports Cat Health & Welfare, and has a strong ethical standing.

The Office is based in Bridgwater, and you would be joining a small and supportive team, responsible to the Office Manager, who focus on providing excellent customer service to the world of Pedigree Cat Owners and Exhibitors.

The GCCF is in an exciting period, where we are developing our IT systems and making improvements to our processes and services regularly. There are therefore many interesting projects to work on, and no two days will be exactly the same. If you like variety, problem-solving, and investigation in your job, then consider a career with the GCCF.

We have a good training budget, and therefore this is a good opportunity for someone to develop their skills. There is also the chance to progress your career path more towards marketing, printing, legal services or management within the GCCF.

You would also have the opportunity to go to many GCCF Cat Shows, including the Supreme Cat Show, held annually and the highlight of the show calendar.
