About the Role

As the Head of CIWF–EU (Policy/Advocacy), you will play a crucial role in advancing Compassion in World Farming's mission to end factory farming, through impactful policy advocacy at the highest levels of the European Union. Leading a talented team, you'll drive our advocacy efforts within Brussels' political institutions to create real, tangible change.

As part of this pivotal role, you'll craft and execute a comprehensive EU political strategy, working closely with Compassion Country Offices, as well as external stakeholders, to drive progress across critical sectors , such as animal welfare, environment, and public health. You'll cultivate strong partnerships with Brussels-based civil society organisations to elevate our initiatives and amplify our voice on key issues. You’ll forge and build corporate partnerships, by engaging with food business teams and lobbyists, and champion our cause, providing essential guidance on EU public affairs to our Country Offices.

About the Organisation

Compassion in World Farming is the leading campaigning organisation for global farm animal welfare. We campaign to end factory farming worldwide, and are a growing a movement of people who work with us to influence a fair transition towards a more regenerative, climate and nature-friend agricultural future. Our hard hitting campaigns aim to influence governments, and economic stakeholders to make changes to the business as usual approach to how we produce and consume our food, whilst reducing animals in the system, and influencing food producers and retailers to reach the highest standards of animal welfare for farmed animals.
