Work with us

Random fact alert: 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.

Who we're looking for

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 - so as long as you're as enthusiastic about veganism as we are, we'd love to hear from you. If you're looking for a challenge and can demonstrate that you have the required skills and enthusiasm, email us to find out more.
