Job Details

Are you a public relations or media officer committed to making a real difference in animal welfare?

We are looking for a communications officer to join our busy team, you will be as comfortable contributing to the planning of communications activities as you are picking up the phone to journalists.

Our benefits include generous holiday entitlement, excellent pension scheme, discounts on shopping and cinema, working in a dog friendly office, most importantly working with a passionate and committed team.

The League Against Cruel Sports is Britain’s leading charity working towards a kinder society where persecuting animals for ‘sport’ is in the past.

Redefining what is acceptable and inspiring change, we were instrumental in helping bring about the landmark Hunting Act 2004. Driven by compassion and empowered by knowledge, we manage sanctuaries to protect wildlife, carry out investigations to expose law-breaking and cruelty to animals, and campaign for stronger animal protection laws and penalties.

United, we will end animal cruelty in the name of ‘sport’.
