Current job opportunities

Please view our current vacancies below.



Imagine a world where every working animal lives a life free from suffering and is treated with compassion. Do you share this vision?

Established in 1923, our goal is simple: to improve the welfare of working animals in the world’s poorest communities. Through three key areas – treatingtraining and teaching – we are inspiring others to act in the best interests of working animals while also providing practical, professional and sustainable solutions. We recognise that the fortunes of working animals and people go hand in hand: in the developing world, just one working animal can support an extended family of up to 30 people. Our work improves the lives of working animals while supporting the communities that depend on them.

We currently work in 28 countries across Africa, Asia and Central America.

We are delighted to be recruiting three/four Trustee roles.  This is a wonderful opportunity to join a highly experienced, passionate, and dedicated board of trustees.

SPANA’s trustees are responsible for ensuring the charity is pursuing its long-term goals, effectively managing its finances, and successfully fulfilling its charitable obligations, while operating in line with all legal requirements and the wishes of their supporters.

You will attend four Board meetings and a Board Away Day annually as well as sit with one of the committee groups.  Meetings will take place either in London face to face or remotely. Reasonable expenses will be reimbursed for attending Board/Committee meetings.

  • Fundraising, with experience of global markets/corporate partnerships
  • Education, with background in international education
