Job Description

Freedom for Animals (formerly known as the Captive Animals Protection Society) is one of the oldest animal rights charities in the UK. Established in 1957, we are celebrating 65 years of working for animals. Through a combination of undercover investigations, research, campaigns, political lobbying and education, Freedom for Animals is working for an end to the abuse and exploitation of animals for human entertainment in zoos, mobile zoos, aquariums, bird of prey centres, circuses, TV and media and the exotic pet trade.

Following a review of our organisational structure, Freedom for Animals is now seeking a talented and experienced Campaigns Manager to develop our campaign work on the issues listed above.

The successful candidate will join a small but growing team and will play a key role in delivering the organisations strategic objectives.

You will be responsible for the development and delivery of existing campaigns and will be expected to develop new cutting edge campaigns that will result in greater protection for captive animals. You will work closely with the Director, Fundraising Manager and other key staff to ensure that campaigns support income generation. You will have excellent communication skills with experience of dealing with media enquiries and giving presentations to a wide range of audiences.

You will be a team player, have a good level of education, be a passionate advocate for animals and share Freedom for Animals ethos and vision. You will have demonstrable experience of campaigning and influencing change, preferably within a small to medium sized charity, either in a paid role or in an appropriate voluntary or grassroots role.

Experience of managing investigations (including undercover investigations) would be beneficial.

Knowledge of animal protection issues and legislation relating to zoos, mobile zoos, aquariums, bird of prey centres, circuses, use of animals in TV, film and other media, and the exotic pet trade would be an advantage.
