Business & Human Rights Strategy Advisor/Analyst
For 50 years, we’ve been campaigning for human rights wherever justice, freedom and truth are denied. We’ve reshaped policies, challenged governments and taken corporations to task. In doing so, we’ve changed thousands of lives for the better. Join Amnesty at our Secretariat office in Hong Kong and you will too.
About the role:
This pivotal role leads the development of global and high profile advocacy and campaigning strategies within the specialist field of business and human rights. The subject matter expert on business and human rights, this role will be key in achieving Amnesty International’s Strategic Goals on these issues, and focus particularly on the role of Chinese business operations outside of China, as well as China as a global economic factor.
Working with the Business and Human Rights team, Amnesty’s Business and Economics Network, various country teams, sections and relevant NGO’s, this role will coordinate advocacy and campaigning to provide a watertight strategy and expert advice in Business and Human Rights as a specialist.
With proven knowledge and first-hand experience of undertaking high quality advocacy and campaigning on human rights and business and economics issues, you’ll have in-depth specialist knowledge in the field of business, economics, and human rights at the international level.
A person of excellent political judgement, strong analytic skills and the ability to plan strategically, you’ll be used to negotiating and influencing others to put your point across, planning and managing projects, and offering timely, succinct and accurate guidance to others. Excellent written and spoken English is essential, with fluency in Mandarin a highly desirable attribute.
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. And 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. We can only do this because of the generous donations from millions of people around the world.
