We employ over 380 people globally covering campaigns, media, fundraising, operations, finance, administration and human resources.

We have a strong track record of offering existing staff promotions as well as secondments and position changes within the organisation.
Who are we?
We are World Animal Protection.
For over 50 years we have moved the world to protect animals.
We protect animals because we believe a sustainable future for the planet can only be achieved if both animals and people are part of the solution.
We stop the exploitation of wild animals for entertainment and profit. We protect pets and working animals in communities across the globe. We campaign for better farm animal welfare and fight against factory farming. We also help animals when disaster strikes.
Our vision is a world where animals live free from suffering. We are working to help people to see how important animals are to all of us.
We are determined to influence decision makers to put animals on the global agenda and inspire people to change animals’ lives for the better. Today we’re working on projects to end animal suffering by helping governments and communities to protect and care for their animals.

Progressive organisation with opportunities to grow and develop
Inspiring cause, with hardworking, passionate and intelligent professionals. If you have initiative and drive, in most roles, you can shape and lead your work and really contribute to delivering a positive impact. Management behavioural issues present in some teams, which the organisation is working to address. An organisation that is moving in the right direction. They would benefit in the short and long term from nurturing more integrated collaboration with internal stakeholders.
Great cause, global organisation, welcoming environment, staff can really make a difference during a positive transition
