Job description

For 160 years Battersea has been here for dogs and cats and in 2021 the need for our services, expertise and impact for animals has never been greater. We wouldn’t 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 Academy and grant making are a growing and increasingly important way in which we are making a real impact for dogs and cats both in the UK and across the world, while our award-winning marketing and fundraising teams are sector leading when it comes to innovation and creativity, engaging a new generation of supporters.


As we begin the next exciting chapter in our ambitious journey, we’re looking for a visionary, engaging and values-led leader to become our next CEO. You’ll steer us forward,  genuinely inspiring those within Battersea and beyond our gates. You’ll identify and seize new opportunities to extend our reach and impact even further and will carry real influence and credibility with the animal welfare sector, with Government, and with our significant range of partners. You’ll be prepared to challenge established practices to help our globally-renowned charity adapt in a rapidly changing environment.


Battersea is dynamic, thriving and ambitious. We’re a real force for change, recognised widely for our positive and proactive approach to partnership working and sector-wide leadership and collaboration. This is a great opportunity to bring together exceptional leadership with a genuine passion for animal welfare, to help us deliver better outcomes for even more dogs and cats in the future. You’ll be joining an organisation that takes pride in being welcoming, open, and inclusive for our dogs, cats, and people.
