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.




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 a Chair to act as a catalyst for the progressive drive of the charity. Our next Chair will be courageous, ambitious and motivated.

This individual will be operating within an organisation at a senior strategic leader, and will need experience of business development and ideally management experience of change or transformation.

This person will also have governance experience, either with a charity or commercial organisation working with or as part of a Board of Trustees. The successful Chair will have the personal presence and gravitas to engage credibly with stakeholders, and share our passion to make a difference for owners and pets.
