Description

Do you envisage a world free from animal suffering? Do you want to use your time to help end the abuse of animals raised for food?

If so, we'd love for you to join our Volunteer community. Our volunteers are the lifeblood of our campaigns. Driving progress both from behind the scenes, and in public facing campaigns. You are the people power which helps us to achieve positive change for the animals.

As a Campaign Volunteer, you will help us drive campaign success by taking actions which are remotely accessible from wherever you are based. This includes: writing letters, making phone calls, writing to the media, outreach to companies via social channels, campaign research and much more!

Everything you do in support of our campaigns will help to reduce the suffering of animals who are on factory farms right now. At the same time, you will open the eyes of the general public to the abhorrent truth of factory farming, spreading awareness and encouraging people to make different dietary choices.

This role can be done from anywhere, no matter where you are in the UK. No prior experience is required, just a passion and drive to make a difference to animals, training and ongoing support provided. There is no set time commitment, but roughly 2-4 hours a month is average for this role, depending on how much you choose to get involved with.

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.

The Humane League UK is committed to building a diverse, equitable and inclusive team. We are an equal opportunities organisation and welcome volunteer applications from all people, regardless of their race, sex, age, religion, disability, neurodiversity, orientation, gender identity or expression.

We particularly encourage those currently under-represented in the animal movement to join our team - individuals who are Black, Indigenous or People of the Global Majority, a person who is differently abled, and people who are LGBTQIA+.

If you prefer to apply in another way, or you have alternative requirements you'd like to discuss, don't hesitate to contact us - please see the Personal Specification document for contact details.
