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, we welcome your prospective CVs and cover letters. Please send them all to recruitment[at]vegansociety[dot]com. Due to the volume of emails received we cannot acknowledge individual submissions, but if we have any relevant vacancies coming up we may contact you. Thank you.

Local Contact Volunteer
The Vegan Society is seeking Local & Group Contacts to represent the Society across the UK. If you are enthusiastic, motivated and love meeting new people and encouraging new vegans, then please email us and let us know.
The Vegan Society would not be as successful as it is today without the help of hundreds of volunteers.
Our volunteers play a huge role in helping us achieve our aims. But it's not all about us, volunteering is great for you too. Amongst other things, volunteering helps boost your CV, gain relevant experience, builds your confidence and you get to meet new people. Sound good?
