    Do you want to help create and implement strategy and good practice for Greyhound Rescue Wales?

    We are particularly interested in talking to people with specific skills and experience such as: legal, property management, fund-raising, HR, knowledge of animal charities and if possible greyhound rescue, dog behaviourists or veterinary practitioners. (the list is not exhaustive)
