The US Director will bring dynamic and outward-looking leadership to the US team—building on our strong track record of driving change through our engagement with food companies, establishing our influence with public policymakers on a regional and national level through lobbying and campaigns, and harnessing advocacy experience to drive forward our global mission within the US.
Compassion USA campaigns peacefully to end factory farming—a system that is not only the biggest source of animal cruelty on the planet, but a major threat to human health, a top contributor to climate change, and a primary driver of wildlife destruction. We believe that one of the biggest issues facing our society deserves a focused, specialized approach, so we are relentlessly focused on ending factory farming and building a more compassionate food system for all.Learn more about our mission
We know we are most effective at achieving measurable change in our food system when our team members are satisfied and our work culture is open, honest, and enriching. That’s why we put such a strong emphasis on maintaining a healthy environment for our team, and why we’re so proud of our empowering and collaborative atmosphere that is family-friendly and welcoming to all.
In 2019, Animal Charity Evaluators awarded us a Standout Charity rating for the third year running, connoting their strongest confidence for a healthy culture and highlighting “diversity, equity, and inclusion as a particular strength of the organization.”
In addition to our strong work culture and benefits package, there’s one simple reason Animal Charity Evaluators has rated us a Standout Charity three years in a row: We are one of the most impactful organizations in the world. When it comes to driving tangible change for animals, people and planet, we’re relentless—and our programs, campaigns, and laser-focused approach has yielded real results in the fight to end factory farming.Learn more about our impact
