Job Details



Birmingham, West Midlands

Are you an experienced and inspiring CEO or leader who is passionate about changing the way we treat animals and reducing damage to our environment through veganism? Do you want to be at the forefront of helping people to think differently about what they eat? Do you feel it’s time to take your professional skill set to the next level and make a real difference to animals and to the environment?

To support our growth, The Vegan Society are seeking a CEO who will provide leadership to our dedicated and talented team, lead the delivery of our strategy and provide operational oversight.  A highly motivated individual with a proven track record in management at a senior level, you will be managing a budget in excess of £5m and an organisation of more than 80 people.

As a charity, we operate differently from corporate business in many ways.  You may not have experience within the third sector, but the qualities that spell success within the sector are diplomacy, great communication, and the ability to sit back and look at the bigger and longer term picture whilst also making a difference today.  As a leader of an iconic organisation, you will also be a great advocate, able to inspire and promote veganism as an easily adopted and accessible lifestyle by supporting individuals, policy- and decision-makers, caterers, manufacturers, health care professionals and the media.

To learn more about this role, please visit our website to view the full job description and to apply.  If you have questions about the role, please feel welcome to reach out to our recruitment support.

The Vegan Society as an organisation values equality, diversity, and inclusion. We want to be an organisation that tackles any structural discrimination or prejudice. We are actively trying to increase diversity in our organisation and encourage applications from all sections of the community. We will offer an automatic interview to all candidates who meet our essential criteria and who identify as from an under-represented race or ethnicity or as deaf, neurodiverse, or living with disability.


Work with us

The Vegan Society is an anagram of The Nicest Voyage. Quite fitting, we think, as for many people veganism is a journey – and a pretty remarkable one at that. Regardless of where you are on your vegan journey, our staff are on hand to make it easier, healthier and more fun. And if you think you’d be great at helping others with this, read on, as this may be right up your street.

The Vegan Society makes veganism more accessible and an easily adopted approach by supporting individuals, policy and decision makers, caterers, manufacturers, health care professionals and the media.

Who we're looking for

Are you passionate about changing the way we treat animals? Do you want to help reduce damage to our environment? Do you want to get people to enjoy healthy vegan food that looks good and tastes great?

As individuals, we have a somewhat eclectic mix of skills, passions and idiosyncrasies… but it works. Probably because we all have one thing in common: we believe we’re onto something really special.

In order to meet our ambitious plans for the next few years, we need to recruit some new people to our team in our new offices conveniently located by Snow Hill station in Birmingham.

Our roles are typically office-based, however remote working will be in place until social distancing measures are relaxed/removed. After these restrictions are eased a flexible work schedule could be considered.

What we offer

  • A fun and supportive team.
  • A solution-focused atmosphere and hard-working environment.
  • Flexible working hours.
  • Employee Assistance Programme and health cash-back scheme.
  • Cycle-to-work scheme.
  • Childcare vouchers scheme.
  • Animal companion compassionate leave.
  • Ethical pension scheme (5-7% employer contribution).
  • Death in service benefit.
  • 28 days leave + 8 bank holidays.
  • Climate Perks Policy (up to 6 days additional paid time off when choosing sustainable transportation for foreign holidays).
  • Central Birmingham office location.
