Amnesty International, made up of millions of individual members and supporters, is a truly global human rights movement.

Of people who are passionate about defending human rights for all.

Of millions of people who believe the world would be a better place if together we took injustice personally.

And by mobilising the humanity in everyone, shining a light on human rights abuses wherever they may occur and speaking truth to power, for over 50 years now we have been making a tangible difference in the lives of those who are denied their basic rights, every hour, every day.


Amnesty International wishes to establish a powerful presence in Nigeria as a national human rights entity that is part of a global human rights movement, to address national human rights priorities as well as create the possibility for people in Nigeria to join Amnesty International’s global human rights campaigns.

The Startup Consultant will assist the set-up of a Country Office in Nigeria for Amnesty International, including:

• Researching suppliers and providers for facilities, human resources (including recruitment) and immigration matters;
• Legal and financial set up;
• Management and oversight of contracts and contractors once appointments in place.


Amnesty International are looking for consultants with strong track records in organisation development and human resources. The consultant will have respect and credibility within the field, excellent knowledge and practice, and a good understanding of the context in Nigeria. Previous experience of establishing new offices or key office functions (HR, Payroll, Facilities etc) is required.
