This role is about building a team, alongside our Direction Leads, that can deliver on our organisational vision. You will lead our Coordination Circle (our core team), initially as a shared role with our Direction Lead. Your key role will be to lead our core team to build a powerful, resilient and broad-based SMO. You will be committed to our mission, align with and model our values, and have the attributes to coordinate a large, complex project.

We value humility, courage, effectiveness, building shared power and love towards others. Our team is rewarding to work with, applies discipline, and has a strong work ethic. We don’t want action without strategy, aptitude without care, or passion without discipline. The animals need a high calibre team, an ambitious strategy, a mass movement, and personal fortitude to see it through.

Leading Animal Freedom will require: personal sacrifice; fearlessly confronting our adversaries; staying calm whilst others lose it; being on the frontline of protests; and a disciplined commitment to nonviolence.
