Do you love puppies and kittens? Do you hate taxes and wasteful government spending? Do you sweat the details, enjoy working with a team, and dig a fast-paced startup culture?
If you answered yes, read on: this is your dream career opportunity. We’re looking for a Campaigns Director to help us build the future today.
What We’re Looking For: A Campaigns Director to help drive advocacy and public policy campaigns for the White Coat Waste Project (WCW). The Director will play a key role in developing the Campaigns team, building key infrastructure for the department, managing staff and consultants on a day-to-day basis, and integrating tactics across the organization. S/he will work remotely from home and closely with the Senior Vice President for Advocacy and Public Policy and other remote employees and consultants. Must be fully committed to our bipartisan and strictly single-issue mission of ending wasteful government spending on taxpayer-funded animal experiments. Strong interest in issue advocacy, politics, public affairs, animal advocacy, or pro-liberty causes.
Why You Want This Job: WCW is a taxpayer watchdog and bipartisan coalition of 3 million liberty lovers and animal lovers. WCW was the first organization to expose Dr. Fauci’s beagle experiments and runs the #BeagleGate campaign to end them. WCW was also the first to expose U.S. taxpayer funding for animal experiments at the Wuhan lab — the suspected source of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Glenn Greenwald says: “More than any other group, it is WCW that has elevated the cause of stopping these horrific government experimentations on dogs and puppies into the mainstream political conversation.” BuzzFeed says WCW “is writing a controversial new activist playbook — and it’s unclear whether anyone can control the forces that it has helped to unleash.”
Our high-profile campaigns at the Dept. of Veterans Affairs, USDA, FDA, NIH, EPA, and more, have cut government experimentation on dogs and cats to its lowest-ever level and secured the first-ever federal policies to retire and release survivors. WCW was honored as the Public Affairs Campaign of the Year by the American Association of Political Consultants and awarded the LUSH Prize as the world’s top public awareness campaign about animal testing. Our work has been featured on the front cover of USA Today, the New York Times, NBC, Fox News, Time, People, Science Magazine, and many more.
The Campaigns Director is responsible for specific duties that include (but aren’t limited to) the following:
- Campaign Management: Drive day-to-day advocacy efforts for a portfolio of WCW campaigns and initiatives. Create opportunities for media, public policy, and grassroots engagement, and develop and execute strategies to advance WCW campaigns and initiatives. Help plan and manage the overall advocacy calendar.
- Departmental Management: Manage WCW’s Campaigns staff and key consultants on a day-to-day basis.
- Metrics: Develop and lead a metrics system to track and measure progress for campaigns and initiatives.
- Grassroots: Lead all action alerts, outbound emails, call-in-days, petitions, tele-town halls, etc.
- Marketing: Oversee and integrate all campaigns and initiatives with WCW’s marketing team to educate supporters.
- Communications: Oversee and integrate all campaigns and initiatives with WCW’s communications team to maximize visibility.
- Research and Investigations: Oversee and integrate all campaigns and initiatives with the WCW research team for white papers, reports, and investigations.
- Public Policy: Oversee and integrate all campaigns and initiatives with WCW’s public policy team to educate and rally key decision-makers.
