We are currently working with the Flicka Foundation who are based just outside Falmouth in Cornwall. Founded in 1995, the charity now cares for over one hundred donkeys, ponies and horses, all of whom have been rescued from abuse, neglect and abandonment.
The Charity Manager will work with the Trustees and a small team of staff and volunteers all committed to the highest levels of animal welfare. You will have day to day management responsibility for the Centre ensuring equine welfare meets the highest standards, managing and supporting our hardworking and enthusiastic team. We need you to work closely with our Development Manager to identify and maximise opportunities to grow our income and ensure future sustainability. Previous experience of working with equines is not important, but relevant experience in a management role and a passion for animal welfare is.
Project management experience and skills would be hugely helpful. It would be great if you had previous experience of working for a charity and an understanding of charity governance. You may even have run your own business employing a team, managing the challenges of ever changing priorities and the need for flexibility.
The Centre is open to visitors and this provides the opportunity to build on the donkey adoption scheme and engage with both existing and potential supporters so you will need to ensure the visitor experience is positive and informed. This will be a varied role and a real opportunity to be part of the journey in consolidating the future of the Flicka Foundation.
