We are looking for someone who is passionate about animal rights to join the Campaigns Team at SAFE.

This role is responsible for the development, coordination, and execution of key SAFE initiatives.

You will have a can-do attitude, love innovation, embrace change and display resilience against adversity.  A strong strategist, with proven ability to manage multiple internal and external stakeholders during campaign development and execution, you will be able to identify and respond to environmental changes and adapt campaigns quickly and appropriately.   You will ensure you are across key developments in political and regulatory systems and events so that your planning and tactics are well-targeted, and that opportunities are identified.

  • a knowledge and genuine commitment to animal  rights;
  • the ability to communicate clearly and compellingly;

  • ability to develop and implement campaign operations, including planning, tactics, and evaluation.

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

This is a permanent, full-time position (40 hours a week).

Our preferred location is our Wellington office, but we will consider applications from suitable candidates in Auckland and Christchurch.
