World Animal Protection (formerly The World Society for the Protection of Animals) is an international animal welfare non-government organisation that has been in operation for over 30 years and has Country locations in Africa, Asia, Europe, Latin America and North America. The organisation is active in more than 50 countries with more than one million supporters globally.
To achieve its vision of a world where animals live free from suffering, World Animal Protection has four main campaigns to protect the one billion animals that live in communities, the 70 billion animals farmed each year, to protect and rescue animals in disaster zones and to protect wild animals keeping them in the wild. On a global scale, World Animal Protection also works towards putting animal protection at the heart of global thinking by using our theory of change to lobby and advocate; educate and mobilise and catalyse sustainable solutions to achieve impact for animals at scale.
Reporting to the Chief Operating Officer in the UK you will lead and direct the Australian and New Zealand offices and teams to achieve local, regional and worldwide goals. You will nurture high-quality and multi-disciplinary teams to ensure that the business, campaign and fundraising plans are developed, implemented and monitored.
You will liaise with government authorities, industry, donors, stakeholder organisations and media as well as managing finances, legals, governance, administration and communications.
You have extensive experience in leading campaign driven organisations, not necessarily in the animal welfare community, and possess a strong understanding of activism, fundraising, operations and communications. You are a strategic thinker, politically astute, and a persuasive communicator with the drive and initiative to lead an already successful team.
Importantly, you have change management experience, ideally developed in a matrix management environment, with the ability to further develop internal systems and processes.
