Overview

Do you envisage a world free from animal suffering? As a Grassroots Organiser, you will help make this vision a reality by organising regular campaign events and actions in your local area. All materials provided and relevant expenses paid.

Why join us? We exist to end the abuse of animals raised for food. We work specifically on corporate focused campaigns demanding better welfare practices for chickens. The actions and events you organise will help to open the eyes of the general public to the truth of factory farming, and add vital pressure onto our corporate targets, ultimately resulting in reducing animal suffering.

As a warm, friendly and approachable person, you will thrive taking the lead organising events and actions and enjoy meeting like-minded people.

We’re a remote team, so we can support you wherever you are in the UK. There are no limitations on location.

As a Grassroots Organiser, you will be changing animal lives by:

  • Organising events/actions in your local area including social meet-ups, peaceful protests, leafleting and public outreach (roughly 1 event every 6-8 weeks is ideal where possible). All materials are provided and relevant expenses paid.
  • Promote your events/actions and encourage others to join you, bringing people together for the animals to create change
  • Joining us at other in-person events/actions including peaceful protests organised by staff and other volunteers
  • Get involved in campaign actions remotely, such as writing emails, letters, social media actions and more
  • Attend online events within the volunteer community

The events and actions you organise don’t need to be big, 2 or 3 people getting out there for the animals will make all the difference and we have an existing community of volunteers to tap into.

Perfect for those interested in gaining firsthand experience in campaigning or volunteer management, or just interested in creating direct change for animals. If you’re excited by the prospect of speaking to the public and taking the lead to organise local actions, all while making a genuine difference to animals, this is the role for you.

You will be working directly with THL UK staff members who will steward and support you throughout your time with us, including a full onboarding process to get you started. We’ll give you everything you need, no prior experience needed.

There is no set time commitment for this role, you can get involved at a time that works for you, but we ask that you organise at least 1 event every 6-8 weeks where possible. It takes around 4-6 hours to deliver an event (including planning and delivery). Whether you’re a student, retired, working full time, or somewhere in between – we would love to welcome you.

If you agree with our vision, and you want to do your part to help end the abuse of animals raised for food, join our team today.

About The Humane League

The Humane League was founded in the US in 2005. We’ve been operating in the UK since 2016, when we hired our first campaigner. Since then, we’ve been able to take on more staff, become a registered charity, and score some incredible progress for animals.

We advocate for corporate reforms through hard-hitting animal welfare campaigns, and provide information and encouragement to help people make dietary choices that will reduce animal suffering.

None of this would be possible without our growing team of volunteers and supporters mobilising across the country. Please join us by signing up to our Fast Action Network, becoming a volunteer or making a donation today.

We are a registered charity in the UK, number 1177926.
