We have Community Ambassadors across the 12 Unitary Authorities of the North East who love what we do and have personal experience of the benefits of our lovely service. They often represent us locally and work tirelessly to grow our service in their communities by raising awareness, recruiting and fundraising to provide more friends for more lonely elderly neighbours who miss friendship and the company of a dog.

Working closely with the office based team, the Community Ambassadors:- give presentations using Wag online materials to local groups, support the recruitment of volunteers, fundraise personally and also support the fundraising activities of others, act as a support or mentor to new volunteers as appropriate, provide digital support to applicants or volunteers to enable them to successfully engage with our online processes and groups.
Community Ambassadors take responsibility for fundraising equipment, including contactless donation systems, exhibition stands and marketing and promotional materials. They co-ordinate local events on the ground with the office team including company or other visits, street collections; they access Wag data for their communities and share ownership of the regional growth and fundraising.
They are dog lovers, strong communicators who are passionate about our work. They are professional, well briefed in everything Wag & Company, team players, customer focussed and feel closely aligned with our corporate values.
The likely time commitment is very flexible and probably no more than a few hours every fortnight with additional time for training and half day regional meetings no more than quarterly.
Their love of Wag's service and their personal experiences makes a real difference to our ability to meet the huge demand in our region and to safely provide more and more friends for the elderly with two and with four legs!
