About Animal Policy International

Animal Policy International (API) focuses on ending factory farming through trade policy.

API is working with policymakers in regions with higher levels of animal welfare legislation to advocate for responsible imports that are in line with domestic laws. By applying equal standards, API aims to advance animal welfare in exporting countries with lower levels of animal welfare. An example of this is New Zealand, which has banned sow stalls and battery cages but imports products from this cruelty from China, Australia, Vietnam, and more.

About the role

API is looking for a Public Affairs Manager based in the UK. By working closely with the Government, producers and NGOs, the Public Affairs Manager will help drive forward our ask of legislative change in imports. 

The Public Affairs Manager will work with the Co-Executive Directors to create, develop and oversee policy strategies, monitoring and evaluation of policy work, research of stakeholders, delivering advocacy and communications work, representing the organisation at meetings and events with varied external stakeholders, in person. The Manager will need to be comfortable talking to a diverse range of stakeholders - from politicians and civil servants and to farmers and NGOs. The Manager will also organise events, prepare and organise reports and briefings.
