The urgent human rights issues that we need to bring to the world’s attention are hugely varied.
You will work to develop and support effective action on behalf of individuals and communities through developing campaign plans and techniques.

You will be confident in developing and managing an effective portfolio of casework for campaigning and deliver these in an ethical way.
You will be highly motivational and have experience in mobilizing individuals, communities and human rights defenders at imminent risk.
Your confidence and expertise to identify relevant information quickly, understand what’s key and pinpoint the most effective means of communication will provide authoritative advice and support to staff.
Flexible enough to adapt your approach as priorities change, you will also bring us a real flair for innovation and will act as a reliable post within the organisation.
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.
