About this Role

Amnesty International is the world’s leading human rights movement. Our strength comes from our movement of people who campaign and take action for human rights. Community Organising is crucial to how we build and diversify the Amnesty movement in the UK. We’re now looking for a new skilled Community Organiser to lead our work to build partnerships to join with Amnesty to campaign for human rights change.

About the role

This new role will be responsible for building and maintaining effective partnerships to campaign for human rights change.

This role will build on the established and ongoing partnership with Trade Union Congress (TUC) and other Trades Union partners to help build and diversify the Amnesty movement in communities throughout the UK. The role will also develop and manage new campaigning partnerships (eg with Faith Groups) to help build and diversify the Amnesty movement in communities throughout the UK.

You will have significant knowledge and experience of community organising and campaigning in order to achieve change. You will have experience of effective partnership working with other organisations including trade unions. You will enjoy working with others and have excellent relationship-building skills to build partnerships and to deliver specific projects. You will have excellent interpersonal skills and the ability to communicate effectively with individuals and groups from a range of backgrounds as well as having excellent organisational and administrative skills. You will share our passion for human rights and for inspiring others to engage and campaign for change.

About Us

Our aim is simple: to bring the world closer to a place where human rights are enjoyed by all. Independent, international and influential, we campaign for justice, freedom and truth wherever they’re denied. Already our network of over three million members and supporters is making a difference in 150 countries. And whether we’re applying pressure through powerful research or direct lobbying, mass demonstrations, human rights education, or online campaigning, we’re all inspired by hope for a better world. One where human rights are respected and protected by everyone, everywhere.

Amnesty International values diversity and welcomes applications from all sections of the community. Applications for flexible working will be considered.

Closing date: 24 February 2020.

Interview date: 11 March 2020.
