Now Hiring: Operations Manager

What We’re Looking For: An Operations Manager to provide day-to-day QuickBooks management, track and manage financial records, produce financial reports, and manage routine compliance processes. S/he will work remotely from home and closely with the President and other remote employees, outside consultants, and agencies. Must be fully committed to our bipartisan and strictly single-issue mission of ending wasteful government spending on animal experiments. Strong interest in issue advocacy, politics, public affairs, animal advocacy, or pro-liberty causes.

Why You Want This Job: The White Coat Waste Project (WCW) is a nonprofit, bipartisan government watchdog on a mission to get the U.S. government out of the $20 billion taxpayer-funded animal testing business. Our message? Stop the money. Stop the madness! 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, and NIH 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.
