The mobile revolution. Geopolitical power shifts. A radically altered global economy. As the world changes, so does the way people campaign for human rights.
To remain effective, Amnesty International (AI) needs to respond and adapt.
That’s why we’re expanding our International Secretariat office in West Africa. And why we need your coordination expertise to ensure that relief operations are in line.
About the Role:
The urgent human rights issues that we need to bring to the world’s attention are hugely varied.
This role will be central to coordinating Amnesty International’s financial assistance to individuals and organisations, developing policies and providing strategic guidance.
Amnesty International’s campaigns will be delivered on behalf of individuals at risk, increasing their effectiveness across the wider movement.
At every stage you’ll collaborate with key stakeholders, both internal and external, ensuring campaigns are consistent and streamlined.
You will have experience of coordinating detailed work, involving multiple stakeholders based in numerous global locations.
Your analytical skills will be sharp and you will be able to compare individual requirements to set policy guidelines and also be confident in your judgement to make recommendations.
You will be able to deal with financial data and present this information in a variety of ways, with a firm understanding of the importance of integrity and accountability.
Excellent communication skills, both written and verbal are vital and you will be able to manage a varied workload to maintain high levels of accuracy and output.
Our aim is simple: an end to human rights abuses. Independent, international and influential, we campaign for justice, freedom and truth wherever they’re denied.
Already our network of over three million members and supporters is making a difference in 150 countries.
Whether we’re applying pressure through powerful research or direct lobbying, mass demonstrations or online campaigning, we’re all inspired by hope for a better world.
One where human rights are respected and protected by everyone, everywhere.
