At Animal Jobs Direct, we're lucky enough to work with people who really
care about animals. That's why we introduced our Animal Campaigner
An Animal Campaign Officer is an incredibly important position within an animal charity; they're the voice of the cause. Animal campaigners make the case for animal welfare. They change the minds and hearts of decision makers - politicians, celebrities, local business people - and get whole communities working towards a goal.
Could I be an Animal Campaign Officer?
Not everyone is cut out for this kind of work.
How do I become an Animal Campaigner?
The first step is taking our course, which is thorough and affordable. You will learn about the current issues facing animal welfare; what animal campaigning groups can do about it; how to make a difference; and how to make sure the changes you make stick around for the long term.
When you've got a solid knowledge base, you can apply for jobs within animal welfare organisations (the RSPCA is an obvious example in the UK). You may wish to start with a part-time or volunteer role as you build up on-the-ground experience.
From there, you may choose to continue your campaigning career within the framework of an already established organisation, or you might want to start your own. Some campaigners realise that the cause they want to fight for needs a new, dedicated team to work on it.
Whichever route you choose, we hope you'll find all the knowledge you need here. Contact us if you want any more information.
