  • What makes your organization a great place to work?

    We are a small, friendly and hard working team of three, which works closely with a dedicated Board of Trustees and with the British Veterinary Association. We are in the office 40% of the time and are based at BVA’s offices in London.

    Working for AWF gives you the chance to get fully involved in the charity’s work and have a big impact on the charity’s success. This is extremely motivating and satisfying, as there is always something new to learn.
