Job opportunity: Senior Campaigner (grouse moors)


Organisation: The League Against Cruel Sports

Salary: £28,000

Full time position

Closing date: 26 March 2018

Location: Edinburgh – some home working may be possible


The League Against Cruel Sports is a leading UK charity that works to expose and end the cruelty inflicted on animals in the name of sport such as, fox, deer and hare hunting, game bird shooting and wildlife crime. We rely on public support to carry out our work, which includes: campaigning, investigating, police liaison, prosecutions, research, publishing reports, and generating media coverage.

The League Against Cruel Sports is looking for a Senior Campaigner to develop and implement a coalition campaign aimed at reforming Scotland’s grouse moors for the benefit of people and wildlife. We are looking for candidates with proven experience of bringing about social change.

While the League opposes killing animals for entertainment, grouse shooting is firmly established in Scotland and claims to be integral to rural communities and provide them a significant financial benefit. The successful candidate will build upon an existing coalition of like minded organisations who want to see radical change on the moors to benefit wildlife, the environment, local communities, and the nation. They will also help give local communities a voice on this issue and engage with the Government review of grouse moor management.

Candidates should ideally have proven experience of campaigning, event management, commissioning research, political lobbying, public speaking and facilitation of coalitions.

The coalition campaign is being founded by the League in partnership with OneKind. The role will be hosted by OneKind in their Edinburgh office; some home-working may be possible.

      Isn’t it just!!!! This has made my day! Onekind and LACS are brilliant, the way they’ve worked together has been an exemplary example of how organisations with a common goal can and should. High possibility that between deer stalking and grouse shooting Scotland suffers far more from recreational hunting than any other country in the world – there should have been a special org just to fight bad estates a long time ago. Therefore this is a big step forward, well done LACS and Onekind.
