Wood Green is on a quest to do more for people and pets. 

Established in 1924, Wood Green, The Animals Charity has grown to become one of the UK’s leading animal welfare charities. Our vision is of a world where all pets are well cared for in loving homes for life.

At the core of our work, we find loving new homes for around 5,500 animals per year, from cats and dogs to rabbits, mice, guinea pigs, chickens, ferrets and goats. Our work doesn’t stop there, however; we promote responsible pet ownership by providing support, guidance and education to members of the public. Working in partnership with like-minded charities in the UK and beyond, we aim to share our valuable knowledge and set high standards of animal welfare.

Legal Trustee

We are at an exciting point in our evolution as we look to maximise our impact, and we are transforming Wood Green to ensure it is fit for the future, making a bigger difference to pets and people in our communities. 

Wood Green is now seeking two Trustees to join the Board to be at the heart of this transformation, with skills and expertise that will support the organisation on this journey.

Wood Green is looking to appoint an individual with senior experience in commercial law or equivalent in-house senior legal counsel experience. Ideally this individual would also have property law or estate management experience. Insight into charity law and charity trading would also be beneficial.

This person will demonstrate a healthy understanding of risk and its benefits, be prepared to take risks, and have entrepreneurial instincts. The successful Trustee will have the ability to build and sustain relationships with key stakeholders and colleagues to achieve organisational objectives.
