The role offers a fantastic opportunity to make a tangible impact for farm animal welfare within a dynamic team and influential organisation. 

They are looking for a proven project leader and relationship manager. You will be responsible for developing existing partnerships and establishing new ones with food companies in Europe (and sometimes further afield), in order to deliver higher farm animal welfare standards and food choices within the food sector. You will specifically engage companies in key Compassion initiatives including The Good Farm Animal Welfare Awards, the Supermarket Survey and a range of project work that make up the Food Business Programme.
