I absolutely love my role at Animal Equality; it has given my life a profound sense of purpose. Unlike my previous job in the fast-moving consumer goods industry, where I often questioned the significance of my work, I now wake up each morning with renewed energy. I not only enjoy the camaraderie of like-minded colleagues who are deeply passionate about our cause but also have a crystal-clear sense of purpose.Imogen Allen, Copywriting Coordinator
As a part of our small yet powerful team, I no longer feel like a cog in a corporate machine. Every day is different because we all have the opportunity to go above and beyond our job descriptions if we choose to. Most importantly, with every newsletter I write, every advertisement I share, and every problem I tackle, I know I am contributing to the vital work we do, making a significant impact on the lives of countless farmed animals.
In a time where it can sometimes be hard to match our personal values with our occupations, I feel accomplished knowing that my work at Animal Equality is part of a larger mission helping to bring us closer to a world in which animals are recognised as individuals, deserving of dignity and benevolence. The tirelessness with which my colleagues fight globally to improve the world for farmed animals makes me proud to be part of a team of such inspiring and devoted individuals. Animal Equality feels like the perfect place for those looking to be part of groundbreaking work within the animal protection movement.Akira Francis-Grant, Administrative Officer

I also really appreciate the support and guidance I received during my time at Animal Equality, and this is something I will hold close to me during what I hope is a long career working to achieve much-needed changes for our animal friends. I’m happy to continue to support Animal Equality and I’m excited for the many achievements I know this dedicated team will continue to secure.
