As a UK based charity operating in Greece since 1959, GAWF’s purpose is 'the prevention and relief of cruelty and suffering amongst animals in Greece'.

So that is why we are seeking someone committed to animal welfare with fundraising and communication skills and experience who can develop and improve our business approach to help increase our income from supporters, other trusts and foundations as well as from corporates, both in the UK and Greece, to help sustain our future. The role will require regular communication and working with Athens based staff and contractors, as well as UK trustees.
