Job opportunities

Do you want to be part of changing the world?

Can you no longer be silent in the face of injustice?

Is it time for you to step up, use your passion and skills for good and be a voice for animals?

If this is you then we need you to join us and be part of our fight towards a world where animals are no longer exploited, abused or made to suffer.

If you join us, you’ll have the opportunity to work alongside and learn from the most experienced and influential animal advocates in New Zealand. You work will have meaning and purpose and you will wake up each day knowing you are part of a dedicated team who are making a difference.

We are always looking for people with the skills and experience to help us shape the future. If you’d like to work with us, please write to [email protected] and tell us how you’d make a difference for animals.

We have offices in Auckland, Wellington and Christchurch and we particularly welcome applications from people with experience in Campaigning, Communications or Media. Skills and experience are dependent on what position we are hiring for, but for all our roles, we ask that applicants are vegan. You must have an interest and knowledge of animal welfare and rights and ideally some experience in animal rights advocacy. We are able to offer a fun and friendly working environment with a great team around you, professional development and training, and flexibility with your working hours.


“Never doubt that a group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.”
