People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) is the largest animal rights organization in the world, with more than 6.5 million members and supporters.

PETA focuses its attention on the four areas in which the largest numbers of animals suffer the most intensely for the longest periods of time: in the food industry, in the clothing trade, in laboratories, and in the entertainment industry. We also work on a variety of other issues, including the cruel killing of rodents, birds, and other animals who are often considered “pests” as well as cruelty to domesticated animals.

Turn on the television, flip through a magazine, or listen to your favorite radio station, and chances are you’ll soon come across an advertisement promoting meat, household cleaners that have been tested on animals, fur or leather clothing, or an ad that simply doesn’t portray animals respectfully. In the face of the many anti-animal advertisements out there, it’s up to kind people like you to ensure that animals’ voices are heard and to spread the word about how everyone can help animals. As PETA’s PSA Placement Coordinator, your duty is to work with advertising agencies that will run, free of charge, our public service announcements (PSAs).   Primary Responsibilities and Duties: As a non-profit we want to make sure that we spend all our time and resources helping animals as effectively as we can, so as PSA Placement Coordinator you’ll be in charge of developing relationships with sales representatives and PSA directors to negotiate free or reduced-rate placements.
