Veganuary is an equal opportunities employer; we welcome applications from all suitably qualified persons, regardless of their race, sex, disability, religion, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, marriage and civil partnership status, or age. We would particularly welcome applications from black, Asian and ethnic minority candidates. We celebrate diversity and are committed to creating an inclusive environment for all employees.

Veganuary’s vision and values:

Our vision is simple; we want a vegan world. A world without animal farms and slaughterhouses. A world where food production does not decimate forests, pollute rivers and oceans, exacerbate climate change, and drive wild animal populations to extinction. 

Our values:

Impact: we are committed to a vegan world; we will utilise research to evaluate how the highest number of lives can be spared and direct resources to that end. 

Empowerment: we will optimise our outreach to support and encourage people on their vegan journey in a non-judgemental, positive, constructive and easily accessible way. 

Collaboration: by partnering with other mission-driven organisations and working closely with corporates, we will make a bigger difference. 

Diversity and inclusion: we know that it takes people with different ideas, strengths, interests and backgrounds to achieve our vision; we appreciate the value of this and how it brings us closer to achieving our mission. 

Respect and integrity: in all internal and external relationships, we will strive for genuine, honest, and transparent communication. 

Resilience: we will continue to create a professional and sustainable (human, social, economic and environmental) organisation.
