Individuals at Risk Campaigner
$44,944 per annum
Use your experience as a human rights campaign strategist to respond to some of our most critical campaigning issues in the MENA region. Working within the Individuals at Risk Team, you'll react quickly to emerging priorities assessing changing situations quickly, capitalising on your political judgement and inspiring worldwide action within days.
About the role:
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 prepare relevant materials and deliver appropriate communications and advice to multiple stakeholders in global locations. Spotting opportunities for action, you'll decide on effective strategies and tactics, coordinating the delivery of Amnesty International’s campaigns, increasing the effectiveness across the wider movement.
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. Fluency in written and spoken Arabic, French and English is a must.
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.

One where human rights are respected and protected by everyone, everywhere.
