We are seeking a tenacious, determined and well organised individual with the drive to create progressive change for millions of farmed animals.
This is a permanent, full-time position (37.5 hours per week).
We will be holding a webinar on Tuesday 21st September 2021 at 8pm, hosted by Matthew Melton, UK Corporate Relations Lead and Alex Suchy, Head of Corporate Relations. You will be able to ask any questions you have and find out more about the role. If you’re interested, please register here.

Who you are:
As UK Corporate Relations Coordinator you will be part of a small, high-impact team specialising in corporate outreach for improved corporate policies by major UK food businesses.
Reporting to the Corporate Relations Manager, the primary focus of the position is to engage in dialogue and maintain relationships with UK major food companies to advance farm animal welfare. The position requires extensive research and you will be working closely with other animal protection organisations in the UK to organise meetings and strategise. You should be enthusiastic about making cold calls and new friends.
You are passionate about The Humane League’s mission of ending the abuse of animals raised for food. While working with autonomy is an important part of your role, strong collaboration and communication skills are paramount to your success. You will have the ability to work independently and as a member of a team in a fast paced environment and be able to prioritise and manage multiple tasks effectively and efficiently.
Tenacity: You have the ability to display confidence and relentlessness, especially when faced with confrontational or particularly difficult situations and interactions.
Acuity: You are both quick and calculated in your thinking and decision making in both high-pressure situations and broader strategy discussions.
Cooperative: Although this position is highly independent, the most successful candidates will be individuals who work cooperatively and collaborate with team members, as well as other NGOs and stakeholders.
Organised: This role requires your organisation to be on point. You can work to tight deadlines and think far forwards to organise your work and meetings with companies.
Communication: You are a master of persuasion, who is able to present our message professionally in both written and oral formats, e.g. emails, public presentations and high-pressure meetings with corporate executives.
Good to know:
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, our Employee Assistance Programme, 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 plant-based meals.
We are looking to speak to a wide range of candidates with diverse backgrounds – #NonGraduatesWelcome
