Do you want to work for Djurens Rätt this summer? We are looking for a person who wants a fun and challenging job as a tour coach for our European tour. It is natural for you to take on a coordinating role with responsibility for others. You are outgoing and feel comfortable engaging and leading a team.

The summer tour is Djurens Rätts’s recurring information tour that we have run since 2006. The summer tour aims to spread information about the situation of animals and to influence the public to take a stand for animals. During a few busy and exciting months, we visit summer events, streets and squares to spread information, discuss animal rights and recruit new members to the organization.
