Dogstar Foundation, a UK based charity with its NGO operating in Sri Lanka is looking for inspirational knowledge ambassadors within several key advisory areas to support our continued development.

What will you be doing?

Dogstar Foundation is in a major growth cycle following its transition from unincorporated (Charity number 1188754) to CIO status. Our focus is to improve the welfare of street dogs and cats in Sri Lanka, with canine/feline population control, rabies vaccination programmes, feeding, veterinary care and education.

Successful applicants to our board will have a mix of practical career experience and a passion for animal welfare
The migration of the charity functions from unincorporated to CIO status is practically complete and we now seek to expand our Trustee Board by a further 4-6 members, as we continue our expansion programme.

Key advisory input’s include Governance, Finance, HR, Stakeholder engagement, Legacy engagement, Marketing, Fundraising and Legal support.

Our Board members hold regular quarterly meetings and in between communicate regular on functional support matters and guidance via email, video calls and face to face where possible. Trustee board members may also be located in Sri Lanka which is 4 1/2 to 5 1/2 hours ahead (depending on daylight saving) so individuals need to be prepared to attend some meetings in the morning and occasionally at weekends.

More information on DOGSTAR FOUNDATION can be found on our web site and also Facebook and Instagram.

What are we looking for?

We are looking for individuals with an understanding and passion for animal welfare, with supporting experience within a private or third sector organisation.

Key advisory input’s include Governance, Finance, HR, Stakeholder engagement, Legacy engagement, Marketing, Fundraising and Legal support.

What difference will you make?

This is a vital role, helping ensure we can continue our support for our programmes in Sri Lanka. As a trustee, you will have a real opportunity to offer your unique skill set to help the strategic progression of the charity supporting the CEO and UK and Sri Lanka based teams.
