Would you like to be a trustee of the Animal Welfare Foundation? AWF is BVA’s animal welfare charity with a mission to use veterinary knowledge to improve the welfare of animals through research, education and debate.
We’re looking for 4 to 5 new trustees from the veterinary and animal welfare professions, from primary care through to academia and the commercial veterinary sector.
In addition to experience working in veterinary and animal welfare – we are also looking for people who possess one or more of the following skills: strategic planning, business leadership, knowledge of charity governance and finance, strong connections within the veterinary commercial sector and/or academia, an understanding of animal welfare legislation, experience of grant giving and assessment of research proposals. We’re also particularly interested in applications from people with an interest in or understanding of human behaviour change and theory of change.
You’ll be joining a Board of 10 Trustees who have a range of specialisms and skills.
The Board is responsible for providing strategic direction to achieve its mission. AWF trustees play a very active role in the charity’s work, so this is a wonderful opportunity for a qualified veterinary or animal welfare professional who is keen to use their expertise towards giving animals a better life.
