About the Role
We’re recruiting Board Members with perspectives and expertise across a range of professional backgrounds and skillsets, at what is an exciting time to join the Crustacean Compassion team.
Previous trustee/non-executive director experience is not essential although we are keen to hear from those with expertise in campaigns and policy, corporate engagement, fundraising, finance, legal and governance, communications, or animal welfare science.
About the Organisation
Crustacean Compassion is a not-for-profit animal welfare organisation dedicated to the humane treatment of decapod crustaceans such as lobsters, crabs and prawns, based on scientific evidence of their sentience. We are a small team of animal welfare professionals, and our work is grounded in scientific evidence and ethical reasoning.
Despite our small size we are well-respected in NGO and political circles for our reasoned, determined and creative approach. We raise public awareness of the sentience of decapod crustaceans, work with food businesses to implement changes to their practices and we put pressure on the Government to make the necessary changes to the law. We have received significant public and political attention which has prompted widespread media coverage and are in regular engagement with relevant government departments.
