  • May 11, 2022
Full time Media-Journalism Non-Profit

Job Description

Secure celebrity and professional-athlete support for PETA campaigns and initiatives, including social media campaigns, public service announcements, and advocacy events.  Excellent writing skills, several years of entertainment or sports industry experience, strong attention to detail, and knowledge of–and a passion for – animal rights is a must!

 

What your day will look like:

  • Developing and maintaining relationships with entertainment industry professionals (e.g., agencies, publicity firms, management companies, photographers, stylists)
  • Organizing celebrity and athlete projects, including photo shoots, and the production and editing of radio and TV commercials
  • Supervising the execution of special events
  • Writing letters to celebrities, sports and entertainment figures encouraging them to get involved in various PETA campaigns or to stop supporting industries or acts that harm animals (e.g., wearing fur, buying an animal from a pet store, attending an animal based circus, eating foie gras)
  • Working with key senior staff members to come up with creative celebrity concepts that will keep animal rights issues in the headlines
  • Staying current on the culture including celebrity, digital stars, and sports news and events
  • Finally, you’ll be assisting the Celebrity Relations Manager with other responsibilities specific to celebrity outreach

 

Position Requirements:

  • Extensive knowledge of the entertainment industry and celebrities
  • This position is responsible for getting our message out to celebrities, so you must know PETA campaigns and animal rights issues inside and out
  • You must support PETA’s philosophy and have the ability to professionally advocate our positions on issues
  • Working with high-profile individuals requires the ability to be honest, reliable, and discreet. Experience working in a similar field will show us you have what it takes
  • You’re going to be working with celebrities, publicity firms, and stylists, so the ability to deal with a variety of people in a professional matter will be critical
  • Contracts need to be negotiated and photo shoots need to be organized, and it all has to happen under a tight budget, so we need someone who is an A-list multitasker with a lot of drive. Make sure that your resume outlines how you’ve run similar projects
  • We are always looking for top-notch writers, so perfectly presented application materials will go a long way
  • This position does require proof of the full COVID-19 vaccination
  • Naturally, you’d need to be committed to the objectives of the organization, and living a vegan lifestyle would be part of this
