Cruelty Free International is the leading charity working to end animal testing for cosmetics globally and is seeking a Director of Audience Development and Fundraising to implement strategies to grow income and deliver key messages across the range of their audiences to deliver a step change for laboratory animals worldwide.

Cruelty Free International’s brand and ‘leaping bunny’ symbol have a high level of recognition globally and the charity is one of the world’s longest standing and most respected animal protection organisations.

This new role will be responsible for the charity’s marketing, communications, audience development and fundraising functions.

A strong track record in the field of philanthropy and corporate partnerships is also required. They will also have led and devised successful marketing and communication strategies for business and audience development and will have excellent interpersonal and analytical skills.

Finally, the successful candidate must share a commitment to animal protection and to the values and aims of Charity Free International, to work with them to help create the tipping point for change for laboratory animals.
