Job description

The Humane League UK is seeking a new team member to take on a part-time (4 days per week-Monday to Thursday), 12-month fixed term Campaign Coordinator role within our Campaigns Department. You should have a drive to create progressive change for millions of farmed animals and will be part of a small, high-impact team specialising in campaigning for corporate policy reform where constant learning and improvement are highly valued. You’ll need to be a quick learner and be ready to hit the ground running.

 

You must have experience volunteering (or working) for a campaigning group and be committed and aligned to the cause of The Humane League UK. A willingness to work independently, the ability to learn new tasks quickly and be tech and social media savvy are also requirements for this role. If you have experience managing your own projects and working remotely, this would also be beneficial.

 

This role will involve leading our secondary corporate campaigns as well as acting as an essential support to drive the success of our primary campaigns. You’ll learn how to exert pressure in just the right places to create change at a corporate level, and every day you’ll be part of a team working hard to dismantle factory farming. 

 

You do not need professional experience as a campaigner, but you should be someone who considers themselves to have determination to change the world and a campaigner-spirit. While working  with autonomy will be an important part of your role, strong collaboration skills will be paramount to your success in this role so you’ll need to be a team player and a great communicator. You’ll need to work closely with other team members to facilitate support for THL’s campaigns  through external communications with our supporters and the general public, and via our volunteer network. 

 

This is a part-time, remote position with occasional travel and you must be willing to work flexible working hours from time to time to facilitate street actions, protests and other campaign activities.

CORE RESPONSIBILITIES

  • Running primarily digital corporate campaigns using a range of tools.

  • Researching targets, identifying campaign opportunities, building campaign content and coordinating campaign actions.

  • Providing essential logistical support for our primary campaigns to help facilitate offline campaign actions and protests.

  • Working closely with volunteer coordinators and the Communications Team  to maximise volunteer and supporter involvement in campaigns.

  • Working closely with our Head of Campaigns and our Senior Campaigner to coordinate work across our various campaign areas.

 

Essential Skills

  • Communicator: you are an exceptional communicator and can adapt to different tones and styles

  • Nimble: able to thrive in a decentralized, fast-paced team environment

  • Problem solver: relentless in the face of challenging campaigns and enthusiastic about solving problems

  • Collaborative: a team player that works well with others to get effective and efficient results

  • Quick learner: Confident at quickly learning to use new tools and systems

  • Independent: Can work autonomously on a range of varied tasks and projects, and takes the initiative doing whatever it takes to get the job done.

 

Our hiring process consists of a skills test and three interviews, held virtually.

All employees work remotely and are offered 25 days leave plus public holidays, internet reimbursement, government pension scheme and the collaborative environment at The Humane League!
