About Sinergia Animal

Rated as one of the world's most effective animal protection organizations by Animal Charity Evaluators, Sinergia Animal is an international campaigning organization working in countries from the Global South (Latin America and Southeast Asia) to reduce animal suffering and promote more compassionate food choices.

We use negotiations, investigations, peaceful direct actions, and innovative campaigning methods to expose the suffering of farmed animals.

About the position

The goal of this position is to negotiate and persuade major food corporations to adopt and implement policies to phase out the use of animal products that originate from the worst forms of animal production systems, with a focus on intensive confinement practices. Our current ask in Thailand is for companies to stop using or buying eggs from hens confined in cages. You will be the main contact with companies and work with them to improve their policies. You will also be helping our communications team with content for Thailand's website, blog, and social media and with translations from English to Thai.

  • Travel regionally, as necessary, to meet contacts.

  • Represent Sinergia Animal and its campaigns at public events and with the NGO and animal protection communities at large.

  • Work with Sinergia Animal's international team in translating and developing campaigns and social media materials, writing and/or translating press releases and planning media strategies, acting as a media spokesperson for campaigns, and developing proactive relationships with our PR agency and with the media. Help with any other communication materials when necessary.

  • Build alliances with other international and/or grassroots NGOs.

  • Carry out other activities assigned by the supervisor, director, and/or president and follow all procedures set by Sinergia Animal.
