Please note, Survival doesn’t send volunteers to tribal communities, or sponsor any visitors other than our own staff. We do assist some projects with tribal peoples, but these are run by the tribes themselves.

Why join our team?

Working at Survival is about being part of a brave organization with a long and inspiring history, one that effects real change. Our work is preventing the annihilation of tribes worldwide. And our campaigns have succeeded, time and time again.

Our objective is to champion tribal peoples’ rights and so diversity and inclusion is the cornerstone of our work. Survival is committed to building a diverse and inclusive workplace and actively welcomes applications from candidates of all backgrounds. We will not discriminate on the basis of any aspect of your identity. 

We uphold these principles in our behaviors and practices – as an employer and as a campaigning organization.
