Work With Us
Crustacean Compassion is a not-for-profit animal welfare organisation dedicated to the humane treatment of decapod crustaceans. We are a small team of animal welfare professionals, and our work is grounded in scientific evidence and ethical reasoning.
Despite our small size we are well-respected in NGO and political circles for our reasoned, determined and creative approach. We raise public awareness of the sentience of decapod crustaceans, work with food businesses to implement changes to their practices and we put pressure on the Government to make the necessary changes to the law. We have received significant public and political attention which has prompted widespread media coverage and are in regular engagement with relevant government departments.
Now is an exciting time to join Crustacean Compassion!
Our work has resulted in the UK government commissioning an independent review of decapod sentience, in particular their ability to experience pain, and the associated risks to their welfare from their use in industry. The highly anticipated results of this review are due to be released in late 2021, and are expected to trigger widespread legislative change in the UK and beyond. We are looking for creative, experienced and dedicated individuals to join our team and help us deliver our award-winning campaign and gain legal protection and humane treatment for decapods crustaceans.

Business Support Manager
It is an exciting time to join Crustacean Compassion. This role offers an opportunity to join a friendly and supportive team in an award-winning organisation that is making a significant difference to the lives of millions of animals. We are seeking a Business Support Manager to help support our operations and make sure that we are working as effectively as possible.
Crustacean Compassion is a not-for-profit animal welfare organisation which campaigns for the humane treatment of decapod crustaceans such as lobsters, crabs, prawns and langoustines, based on the scientific evidence of their sentience. Decapod crustaceans are not adequately covered under UK animal welfare legislation. This means that many shocking methods of slaughter, handling and storage which would be illegal in other animals, such as boiling alive, are currently permitted. We are working to change this.
Despite our small size we are well-respected for our reasoned, determined and creative approach. We have received significant public and political attention which has prompted widespread media coverage and we are the only organisation focussed on this issue.
Having recently undertaken the implementation of all core operational systems across the organisation, this varied role will see you supporting the Directors in the effective management of these systems, plus leading on the delivery of the related processes. The role will cover all areas of operations, including finance, human resources, information technology, facilities and governance.
