Are you passionate about helping dogs in need? Do you have management experience in charity retail, veterinary health, governance, finance or other business skills?

If so, we want you to join our team of trustees of Dumfries and Galloway Canine Rescue Centre - the only dedicated dog rescue centre in Dumfriesshire

As a trustee, you will have the opportunity to make a real difference in helping the lives of abandoned and stray dogs in South West Scotland. You will help us to develop and implement strategies to ensure that we provide the best possible care for every dog that comes through our doors to find new forever homes with families in Dumfriesshire and beyond.

We are particularly keen to welcome younger applicants and those from diverse backgrounds to ensure we are representative of the population we serve here in Dumfriesshire.

As a trustee, you will be responsible for overseeing the charity's strategy, governance, financial and operational activity which includes our five shops. You will work closely with our staff and volunteers to ensure that we are meeting our charitable goals and making the most of our resources.
