Job description

Are you passionate about animals? Do you have time on your hands? Do you want to make a difference to help a small grassroots charity thrive in its mission to enshrine better protections for our animals in law?

We are seeking a new member of our Board of Trustees with expertise in charity fundraising and/or financial planning.

Animal Concern, formerly known as the Scottish Anti-Vivisection Society, has campaigned against animal exploitation since 1876. Nowadays, our campaigns have broadened to several specific issues affecting the welfare of wild, farmed and companion animals in Scotland and the wider UK, including restricting fireworks to public, licensed displays only as well as ending dog racing in Scotland - see our profile page for a full list.

We are in need of a new board member who can help us in our long-term mission to promote the humane treatment of all animals. They will need to have a strong commitment to animal welfare issues, be able to work well in a team, and have expertise in fundraising strategy and/or financial management preferably within a small charity setting. This is a priority knowledge base as identified by the current Board. Other expertise in other useful areas such as charity governance, digital operations, public relations and people management are also welcomed.

Please refer to attached job description and person specification for more information about the type of candidate we are looking for.
