Animal Justice Project is an NGO that works strategically within five key areas to achieve an end to animal farming: Undercover investigations, pressure campaigning, education, organising and public engagement.

We are seeking an experienced, strategic and creative Campaigner with the drive to create change for farmed animals in the UK. You will be part of a small, high-impact team specialising in consumer education and political advocacy.

As Campaigner, you will be working closely with the Campaigns Manager and Social Media & Marketing Manager to create and implement ground-breaking advocacy projects for farmed animals. The fun and interactive role of Campaigner will require responsibility for creating both high impact consumer awareness and the pressure campaign strategies – from putting initial ideas on the table to rolling them out across our platforms, in conjunction with supporting fundraising initiatives. While the emphasis will be on The Foul Truth campaign, as a Campaigner, you will also provide proactive support for other projects.

Working as part of a highly effective team within a fast-paced environment, the Campaigner will cultivate relationships with decision-makers and members of the public, in the coordination of imaginative and effective campaigns.

You must be willing and able to travel nationwide when required to organise street events, give campaign-related talks and manage regional press. Ability to drive is essential due to the need for national travel in often difficult-to-reach areas, with sometimes large volumes of campaign materials.

• Creating and commissioning content for social media and online campaigning

• Organising street events and actions, talk confidently to camera, and manage regional press

• Copywriting for email communications, features, external publications and websites, blogs, social media articles and print materials

 

Skills:

• Strong copywriting abilities

• Ability to organise a diverse workload, prioritise and work under pressure
