Are you great with people? Are you good at building relationships, identifying how you can help others and then getting things done? Do you wish to use your skills to do something meaningful? Are you interested in Animal Welfare?

What will you be doing?

Trustees manage the RSPCA Middlesbrough, South Tees & District Branch charity. Like any company we get involved in finance, people and legal topics, making strategies and monitoring our progress. More importantly, we focus on raising funds, managing volunteers and spending money where it is needed to support animals in our region - YOUR region.
As Community Outreach Lead you will be at the heart of our activities with the local community.
Identifying how we can connect with local residents and businesses, understanding what local Inspectors need and working with your fellow Trustees to turn that into actions that can make a real difference. Your responsibilities would include:
● Acting as the primary contact point for all branch connections with the local community -
residents, businesses, vets, RSPCA Inspectors, retailers, other charities or welfare
providers, and anyone involved with animals
● Building connections and corporate partnerships within the community to improve animal welfare
programs and campaiging, and increase fundraising
● Liaising with the RSPCA Inspectors to truly understand what they need and how we can
help them, including participating in local and national welfare campaigns 
● Identifying the biggest animal welfare issues in the local area and developing strategic plans to
address these
● Innovative events designed to engage the local community and maximise fundraising.  

What are we looking for?

Whatever your background or skills there is a role you can play. We support all types of animals and we seek all types of people - diversity is our strength. We seek people who want to work together to improve animal welfare. We are a team, we support each other and learn from each other. You do not need to be an experienced Trustee - we can help with that. We want you to
bring your skills in public relations, startegic thinking and partnership building, along with your motivation, your problem solving skills and ability to get along with people and get things done. If you live on Teesside we would love to hear from you. Together we can make a real difference.
