We're looking for a Campaigner to contribute to our campaign against human rights violations in North Africa. Working at the International Secretariat, you will contribute to a range of projects, including Amnesty International's response to the momentous changes in North Africa witnessed in 2011 and 2012. You will act as a focal point, providing advice and support to our worldwide membership, including devising campaigning strategies, preparing written and other campaigning materials and providing research support.
You will have excellent communication, campaigning and research skills and a demonstrable commitment to human rights. Ideally you will also have specialist knowledge of North Africa and experience of campaigning in a membership organization. While there is no line management responsibility, you will participate in coordinating the work of the team. Along with English, fluency in Arabic or French are essential; it would be highly desirable if you were fluent in both Arabic and French.
Our aim is simple: an end to human rights abuses. Independent, international and influential, we campaign for justice, human rights and dignity wherever they're denied. Already our network of almost three million members and supporters is making a difference in 150 countries. And whether we're applying pressure through authoritative research or direct lobbying, mass demonstrations or online campaigning, we're all inspired by hope for a better world. One where the human rights of everyone are respected and protected everywhere.
Unfortunately we are unable to provide sponsorship for this role.
Deadline 24 March 2013
