At Worldwide Veterinary Service (WVS) we champion animal welfare around the world. We send vets where they are needed most, provide expert veterinary training in hard-to-reach places, and ship urgent aid supplies worldwide, every day of the year.
We deploy teams of vets and vet nurses, send equipment and supplies to help struggling organisations on the front line of animal welfare, and train vets at our international training centres in India, Thailand, Malawi and the Galápagos Islands. We also work on one health projects such as strategic rabies elimination campaigns with Governments and NGOs all over the world.
We work synergistically with our sister charity, Mission Rabies. This charity was established by WVS to eliminate the threat of rabies worldwide, protecting dogs and people from this cruel disease. Despite being 100% vaccine preventable, rabies is still the world’s most deadly zoonotic disease. It kills 59,000 people annually, most of whom are children. As 99% of all human rabies cases are caused by infected dog bites, Mission Rabies follow World Health Organization guidelines to run mass canine vaccination programmes in countries like Cambodia, Ghana, India, Malawi, Sri Lanka, Tanzania, Thailand, and Uganda. To date we have vaccinated over 1,700,000 dogs and rabies educated over 5,000,000 children since 2013.
Both charities run from the same office and this position will have cross over between the two, offering a varied and exciting role, reporting to the Fundraising & Communications Manager.
