The Derek Wilton Dogs Trust and The Compass Dogs Trust are seeking a new trustee with financial skills and experience to join their Trustee Board. The Trusts were established as part of the charitable giving of Compass Pet Products Limited and from the estate of the company’s founder, Derek Wilton, following his death. In line with the objects of the Trusts, the focus is on making grants to provide assistance dogs, to relieve the suffering of dogs in need, and to support research and training in the use of dogs for the public benefit.

The two Trusts share the same trustees (currently four). Following recent retirement from the Board of two accountants with long service, the trustees are looking to appoint one further trustee and are seeking an individual with financial skills and experience. It is anticipated the new trustee will lead on the following areas: oversight of accounts preparation and submission of Charity Commission returns (production of the accounts is undertaken by the Trusts' accountants); financial due diligence for new grantees; management of the Trusts’ insurance arrangements.

Time spent on Trust work is typically two full day meetings in London each year; short ad-hoc meetings via Teams; plus additional time for individual contributions to the running of the Trusts, the business of which is shared between trustees.
