Animals Australia works tirelessly to protect the most abused and defenceless animals in our society. Our award-winning national campaigns and unique investigative work have awakened millions to the suffering of animals in factory farms, the live animal export trade and the greyhound racing industry, while forcing unprecedented industry and government reform. Each victory for animals is underpinned by a strong and proactive supporter base.

The Role:
Animals Australia is looking for a Creative Director to inspire our small but incredibly talented team of thinkers and doers to move mountains for animals. The team at Animals Australia are some of the most passionate you will meet, and they are the best at what they do, which means creative ideation is highly a collaborative process for us. You will be capable of leading and growing a passionate and high functioning creative team of design, video, social and digital experts. We are all about making an impact by pushing the boundaries of design and digital advocacy to achieve the greatest outcome for animals.

We produce most of our collateral in-house, which means you will use your in-depth knowledge of the creative process, proven prioritisation and planning skills to manage a wide range of projects from conception to completion. Since the start of this year we have built a highly interactive new recipe website, overhauled our print vegetarian starter kit, launched innovative digital platforms to inspire action for animals, produced nation-wide billboards, and much more.

Combining creativity, business understanding and strategic thinking, you will ensure high-quality creative output that supports our strategic objectives. Keeping on top of trends and best practice, you set out to lead a team to produce work on the cutting edge of digital advocacy. Your extensive experience, innovative thinking, and creative intelligence mean that you can direct creative vision, though you prefer collaborating with your team. As their manager and mentor, you will brainstorm with them, incorporate and build on the team’s ideas. You are as passionate about great concepts as you are about coaching your team and continually growing their ability.

When projects are underway, you use your demonstrated problem-solving skills and your ability to think innovatively to guide the team through the creative process and help them navigate roadblocks and uncertainty. You’ll also act as a sounding board for the team’s suggested process improvements and empower them to take increasing ownership of the creative process, turning the team into a well-oiled machine.

About You:

Things can get busy and where there is a need, you don’t mind jumping on the tools yourself. You still know the Adobe CC in your sleep and a solid understanding of copywriting and video-editing is also part of your repertoire.

Using your excellent communication skills and ability to speak the language of designers, developers, video-editors, social media experts and translate it for non-technical people, you support cross-team collaboration. Your stakeholder management skills and close collaboration with the campaigns and fundraising teams are paramount to ensuring our campaigns run smoothly.

We would love for you to have worked in an animal protection environment or in a related not-for-profit organisation and experience in creating social change campaigns. However, if that’s not you, but you think you’d be a good fit, we’d love to hear from you.

Last but not least, there’s your knowledge about who we are and what we do. You successfully demonstrate your true understanding and commitment to the objectives and values of Animals Australia.
