ABOUT THE ROLE
The urgent human rights issues that we need to bring to the world's attention are hugely varied. All of them, however, demand creative campaigns that are well-researched, well-planned and well-managed despite the time pressures that surround them. Spotting opportunities for action, you'll decide on effective campaigning strategies and tactics, always looking to capitalise on political opportunities. You'll also draft, review and advise on campaign strategies and materials and meet daily with our key team to review major issues and developments. At every stage you'll collaborate with key stakeholders, both internal and external, to make sure campaigns are consistent, streamlined, and get results.
With experience of working on human rights issues, you must have first-hand in-depth knowledge and experience of the socio-political and economic context in the MENA region, and global human rights trends.
Probably working for a charity, NGO, or government body, you'll have already developed national and international campaigns. So you'll know how to harness everything from on-street activism to online digital tools. As a result, you'll have the confidence and expertise to identify relevant information quickly, understand what's key and pinpoint the most effective means of communication. Flexible enough to adapt your approach as priorities change, you'll also bring us a real flair for innovation and a talent for project management particularly important when time pressures are intense. Excellent communication skills in English and Arabic, both written and verbal, are vital too so you can generate motivational campaign materials that connect with a range of target audiences as well as inspire those you work with.
Amnesty International is a global movement of more than 7 million people who campaign for a world where human rights are enjoyed by all. We reach almost every country in the world and have:

Our aim is simple: an end to human rights abuses. Independent, international and influential, we campaign for justice, fairness, freedom and truth wherever they're denied.
