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.

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 offices near the Jewellery Quarter train/tram station in Birmingham.
