Harris Hill is working in partnership with the Donkey Sanctuary to recruit a new Trustee to their Board, a trustee with extensive estates/rural land management experience.

Since its foundation almost 50 years ago, The Donkey Sanctuary has grown from a Devon-based charity rescuing UK donkeys from neglect and abuse to an international animal welfare organisation transforming the lives of millions of donkeys and mules, and the people who depend on them for their livelihood.

They are already one of the world's largest equine welfare charities and, as we embark on an ambitious, new five-year strategy (2019-2023), it is an incredibly exciting time to join their Board. They are looking for a trustee who offers a significant track record at senior level within estates and land management to include rural property portfolio experience, national or international experience, multi-site management.

Extensive experience of land management farms/landed estates/woodlands
Executive level land management experience
Experience of ecological and environmental strategies
Multi-site property portfolio experience capital investment, risk management
International property portfolio management experience (desirable)

Today, they have 10 sanctuaries around the UK and Europe, and have delivered veterinary, welfare and educational programmes in almost 40 countries around the world, reaching donkeys and mules most in need. Their aim is to help many more of the tens of millions of donkeys and mules worldwide through field projects, research and advocacy, promoting lasting collaborations with communities, partner NGOs, governments, the media and public.

They are, therefore, seeking an individual with strategic vision, strong communication skills and a commitment to their aims through a collaborative approach (from across the sectors). You will be joining a Board with a genuine desire to make a difference. If you have the skills, experience and enthusiasm they are seeking, please contact their retained consultant Ben Pountney at Harris Hill for more information on these exciting opportunities.
