    I worked at The Vegan Society full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The Vegan Society is hands down the best place I've worked at and I look back at my time there very affectionately. The job itself is of course what drew me to the organisation the most, particularly because in my role as Media Officer I had a unique opportunity to be a powerful voice for the animals in the media. Anyone passionate about veganism and issues surrounding it will find it a rewarding place to work.

    Staff are lovely, pay is very generous for the charity sector and there's some flexibility around working hours which is great if you are (or aren't!) a morning person. The organisation is very valuable for the vegan community because of its campaigns, legal and nutrition work, and I was very lucky to be able to promote this. I also gained very valuable professional experience and skills thanks to the training I had been getting.

    Cons

    Honestly, nothing worth pointing out!

    Advice to Management

    Don't spend so much time bothering with unreasonable people just because they're members - it is not worth your time which could instead be spent on saving animals!

    Communications Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Birmingham, England
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at The Vegan Society (Birmingham, England) in October 2019.

    Interview

    I applied online via an application form.
    After the closing date, I had an email followed by a phone call with the recruitment officer who explained the process and offered me a formal interview date.
    I was then scheduled to meet for a formal interview with two senior members of the communications team.
    During the interview, I was given a management skills question test to answer and given 30 minutes to compile my answer/plan of action. We then talked through my POA, followed by them asking me a series of competency-based interview questions, including questions related to The Vegan Society.
    All members of staff I came into contact with were friendly and approachable, I felt a positive and welcoming atmosphere.
    I was contacted a week later to say I had a successful interview and I was offered the job, which was fantastic news.

    Interview Questions

    • The questions were mainly around people management experience, veganism and project management experience.   Answer Question
