Full time, permanent

Salary: c. £48k - £52k (depending on experience)

Location; Godalming, Surrey, UK

Do you have a proven track record in leading supporter fundraising and direct marketing, but most of all fantastic energy and inspirational leadership skills that will help us realise our vision of a world without factory farming?

Factory farming is the single biggest cause of animal cruelty, one of the greatest social and environmental challenges of our time and utterly fails to meet the needs of all the planet’s 7.7 billion people.

Compassion in World Farming International is a fast-growing and influential campaigning charity that is already transforming the lives of millions of animals around the world. We are looking for an impressive professional to lead a new phase of income growth in our biggest fundraising market – the United Kingdom.

We are looking for a talented and inspiring professional to lead and inspire our UK fundraising programme over the coming years.

Compassion has embarked on a global income growth drive that has already connected tens of thousands of people to our cause over the past few years. Investment and staff are in place in key locations worldwide and we now need an exceptional professional fundraiser who can further develop our UK fundraising programme.

This new post has been created to help us attract, convert and importantly, retain tens of thousands of supporters and monthly donors over the coming five years.

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.

Join Compassion as we take the next big step and kickstart a food and farming revolution.

Compassion in World Farming punches well above its weight. Pound for pound, I think they contribute more to the cause of animal welfare than any other group I’ve ever met.” John Webster Emeritus Professor, Bristol University Veterinary School.
