The organisation was launched with the ambition to ease the challenging lives of 8 million stray dogs roaming the streets of Thailand. Through its determination and hard work, they have successfully sterilised over 4,000 dogs, rescuing hundreds more. Their shelter has gone from strength to strength as they have built and developed world class facilities. From their dedicated dog play park to their on-site quarantine and clinic, the Charity is committed to providing sanctuary for Thailand's strays in the best way possible.

Key details:

Role: Chief Executive Officer (CEO) 

Location: London (hybrid working is an option)

Salary: circa £65,000

 Experience of working with and reporting to a Board of Trustees.

 Excellent interpersonal and communication skills, with a strong leadership style.
 The ability to multi-task and oversee a wide portfolio of responsibilities, meeting demanding expectations and timelines.
