Description  

Animal Aid is one of the UK’s longest established and most respected animal rights organisations. We campaign peacefully to bring an end to animal suffering, and promote cruelty-free living. Our main areas of campaigning are animal farming and slaughter, animal experiments, horse racing, shooting, wildlife culls and promoting veganism. From political lobbying, to hard-hitting undercover investigations, and high-profile media work, we work tirelessly to speak out for the most vulnerable animals. In 2017, our achievements included:

  • Convincing the government to make CCTV mandatory for all slaughterhouses in England
  • Stopping disastrous plans to race horses in central London
  • Helping to prevent two fox culls from taking place

Whilst we achieve a lot (read more about 2017), Animal Aid is a relatively small and very friendly organisation. Our office in Tonbridge is a vibrant and supportive place to work, where everyone shares the same ethos. Our Fundraising Team plays a vital role in enabling our crucial work for animals to continue.

Now is an incredibly exiting time to take the lead in Animal Aid’s Fundraising department. We have recently developed a dynamic new fundraising strategy, and you will be responsible for taking this forward and making sure that we increase our capacity to make a real difference for animals. There is plenty of scope for bringing fresh ideas and approaches to the role, as well as evaluating the success of existing schemes.

You will line-manage two members of staff – our Senior Fundraiser (part-time) and Supporter Engagement Officer – and report to the Director.

Candidates who have good experience but may not meet all requirements are welcome to apply and will be considered for a role as a senior fundraiser. Additional training will be provided, where necessary.
