What are we looking for?

We are committed to creating a Board which is representative of our society and in particular, our community and surrounding areas so encourage people from any background to apply for any of our opportunities. Above all, we are looking for someone who is committed to the RSPCA’s charitable objectives and shares our passion for animal welfare. Specific skills such as finance, fundraising, project management, business experience, awareness of employment and/or charity legislation can be useful, but not essential. You will need to be able to work with people and have good interpersonal skills. You do not need to be an expert, although commitment, common sense, and the ability to be objective are vital.

What difference will you make?

You will be able to shape and continuously improve the animal welfare offering in the local area, improving the lives of animals and achieving the RSPCA's main goals and objectives.
