For 160 years Battersea has been here for every dog and cat, and in 2021 the need for our services, expertise and impact for animals has never been greater. We are a globally renowned and highly impactful charity, and we would not be where we are without the passion, determination and expertise of our people who strive to create a world where dogs and cats are treated with care, compassion and respect. Our Board of Trustees (known as Council) are a vital part of Battersea, bringing their considerable experience, skills, insights and commitment to this important governance role.

We’re looking for two new trustees to bring further breadth and diversity to our Council:

  •  A current senior leader in a substantial £50m+ charity, preferably within the international
    development sector, with strong fundraising experience
  • A legal/governance expert, currently operating at minimum of partner level

Beyond a passion for animal welfare, we are looking for real enthusiasm and commitment to our goals. Our new Trustees will help make a difference for our impactful, welcoming, open and inclusive organisation.

We strive to create lasting change for animals and the people that care for them and believe that creating a truly divers and inclusive Battersea, which is proudly open to all, is essential in our mission to deliver greater impact for dogs and cats everywhere. This is a focus areas of work for us at Battersea, and we are committed to ensuring our Council of Trustees have the depth and breath of both professional and personal experience to help us to achieve our plans. We welcome applicants of all backgrounds for these roles, and in particular we would like to increase female, black and minority ethnic, disabled and a wider breadth of age participation in our organisational governance.
