Burns Pet Nutrition Foundation – Trustee Vacancy – Voluntary

Burns Pet Nutrition Foundation – Trustee Vacancy – Voluntary

We are a small charity with big aspirations, that is committed to making a difference to the lives of people and companion animals across the UK. Originally created over 15 years ago, now as a Charitable Incorporated Organisation, the work centres around three areas; countryside therapies, reducing social isolation and supporting animal welfare organisations.

The charity is fortunate to have a small, highly committed, experienced and enthusiastic team who work with and report to, the Board of Trustees. The Board of Trustees sets the vision, strategic direction and the management of the charity. It is responsible for overall governance, including acting as guardians of the charity’s assets, and overseeing operational effectiveness, funding and finance.

Burns Pet Nutrition Foundation has a vacancy for a committed Trustee, willing to share their knowledge and skill in monitoring the operations of this exciting and vibrant charity. We are looking for a committed, experienced person with diverse skills. The Board is keen to appoint a person who has experience of charitable governance, both financial and regulatory, ideally with experience of working with third sector agencies and an understanding of countryside and/or rural skills.

All trustees are unpaid. The Board meets every three months and there may ad hoc tasks which arise where trustees may need to be directly involved.

The closing date is 5pm on Thursday 14 March 2019.
