Global Income Assistant
Full time - (flexible hours may be considered)
Two-year contract (with possible extension)
Salary: £23000-£25000 (depending on experience)
Location: Godalming, Surrey, UK
Compassion in World Farming International is the leading charity campaigning for farm animal welfare. Our mission is to end factory farming – the biggest form of animal cruelty on the planet and the issue at the centre of many of the world’s biggest challenging debates including climate change and sustainable food production to feed an ever-increasing global population.
It is a very exciting time to be joining Compassion in World Farming International – our five-year strategy sees our ambition and drive to end factory farming bigger and bolder than ever before.
As a truly international NGO, with programme teams in Europe, USA and China, we are now looking to recruit an Global Income Assistant.
Factory farming is often justified as a ‘necessary evil’ to fight the coming food crisis – the need to feed the world. Did you know that globally we produce enough food already to feed 16 billion people? Yet we waste more than half of it, not least in feeding human-edible crops to animals in factory farms who never see pasture, or the light of day, or get to experience their natural behaviours. Our challenge is immense, but our arguments are broad, compelling and we absolutely believe that now is the time for the tide to turn.
The organisation was established by a British farmer, Peter Roberts, who became horrified by the development of modern, intensive factory farming and the growing disconnect between modern agriculture and the well-being of animals and the environment. Today we lead a growing worldwide movement of people concerned about how factory farming mistreats animals, wastes precious resources and utterly fails to meet the needs of the planet’s inhabitants.
The post is based at the Compassion in World Farming International headquarters in Godalming, Surrey (45 minutes from London Waterloo). The office is a 3-minute walk from Godalming mainline train station.
