Help transform billions of lives. Including yours.

Compassion in World Farming International is the leading global farm animal welfare organisation, campaigning to bring an end to factory farming and to implement the highest farm animal welfare standards in the UK, Europe and beyond.

We lead a growing worldwide movement of people concerned about how industrial agriculture mistreats animals, wastes precious resources and fails to meet the needs of the planet’s inhabitants. With headquarters in the UK and offices throughout Europe, in the USA and China, we are an influential organisation whose supporters and partners throughout the world help us deliver on our initiatives.

We are recruiting for a Global Head of Media to join our HQ team.

This post requires a passionate and creative communications professional to lead on the development and oversight of outstanding media strategies across our global organisation. In order to champion Compassion’s profile and campaigns through traditional media, social media, and other communication channels, you will have previous leadership experience in PR or communications either agency-side or at an NGO. You will be able to convey strong and clear messaging and understand our target audience. You will need to be capable of working in a reactive manner, to tight deadlines, and lead a team that is based throughout Europe and beyond.

Candidates should also possess a keen interest in animal welfare and environmentalism.

If you are a team leader who knows how to maximise media opportunities for a campaigning organisation, are interested in the farm animal welfare industry and most importantly, have the drive and passion to lead our global team in selling in our stories to the media, then we’d like to hear from you.
