Global Corporate Relations Coordinator
Who we are: The Humane League UK works relentlessly to end the abuse of animals raised for food. We focus our campaigns on the major food industries and businesses that profit from animal cruelty, exposing the reality of how animals are treated, and applying public pressure to secure change. We nurture a culture of teamwork and problem solving. Our team is energetic and mission-driven. Thanks to our focus on effectiveness we have earned recognition as Top Charity from Animal Charity Evaluators for all of their rating periods. First established in 2016, over the past few years The Humane League UK has seen an exciting period of growth, and became a UK registered charity (No 1177926) in 2018. Our employees all work remotely but still enjoy a supportive, collaborative environment. You will have access to a workplace pension, 25 days leave plus Public Holidays, flexible working hours, internet reimbursement, and family-friendly policies. Professional learning and development is actively encouraged. At The Humane League, animal welfare is at the forefront of our everyday work and as such, many of our employees are vegan by personal choice. All of our events and workshops offer only vegan meals and refreshments. The Humane League is committed to creating a diverse, inclusive environment and being an equal opportunity employer.
