at Medical Detection Dogs
Working for Medical Detection Dogs is an exciting and rewarding experience. We are at the cutting edge of British innovation and collaborate with institutions and healthcare organisations around the world. Our Medical Alert Assistance Dogs alert people with complex health conditions when they are in danger of having a potentially life-threatening episode so they can take the necessary action and prevent hospital admission. Our Bio Detection Dogs detect diseases like cancer, Parkinson’s disease and malaria, potentially much earlier than is currently possible. This pioneering work could help to speed up the diagnosis process and impact on thousands of lives.
You can help us achieve our goals and whatever the role you will contribute towards our life-saving work training dogs to save lives using their incredible sense of smell.
Our current vacancies are listed below, or why not come along to one of our recruitment evenings and learn more about working with us.
Could you help shape the direction and strategy of a charity at the forefront of cutting edge innovation?
Medical Detection Dogs is a world-leading charity training dogs to detect diseases. We are looking for two new Trustees to help us develop our work and turn our research into reality.
Founded in 2008 we have already achieved a great deal, with a number of published research papers and more than 140 life-saving medical alert assistance dogs placed supporting people with complex healthcare needs. We are about to move into the next stage of our growth and looking to strengthen our board to help achieve this.
The successful applicants for these exciting vacancies will help shape the direction and strategy of a charity at the cutting edge of British innovation. Our aim is to save and change lives through early detection of disease and our work is much needed.
The charity is now looking for two exceptional people to join our board: one should have a strong research background, ideally bio-medical, with excellent international links and an ability to lead the strategic direction of its research; the other excellent operational fundraising experience to help develop and implement a strategy to raise the funds needed for the charity’s growth and development, and to achieve our ambitious goals.
