£53,568 plus excellent benefits (3 year fixed-term contract)

Big issues demand big ideas. If you have them, bring them to the biggest human rights campaigning platform there is. Amnesty is the only global movement of its kind. And we can give you a louder voice and the chance to make a massive difference the world over.

About the role
You'll boost the Demand Dignity campaign's effectiveness and the quality of Amnesty's work on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights by shaping the direction that the programme takes, and deciding which issues they focus on. It's a strategic role and a creative one. It'll be down to you to get the most out of your budget by harnessing new approaches and fresh thinking. Working closely with others at the International Secretariat, Amnesty's sections worldwide, and our partners, you will steer the resources using innovative forms of activism and capitalising on other emerging campaigning opportunities. But whatever tactics you employ, you'll never lose sight of the big picture, our core values and the ultimate aim of ending human rights violations.

About you
You'll have already proven you can develop and deliver global campaigns that galvanise people into action and make change happen. And whichever part of the world you're working in now, you'll have shown you're forward-thinking, and well able to initiate and win support for your innovative projects. Thoroughly familiar with human rights issues, you'll have a deep understanding of the links between poverty and human rights including perspectives from the global south, you'll also have developed sound political judgement, strong relationship-building skills and a flair for putting your points across convincingly. Now you'll be looking for a more influential role in a complex campaigning environment - one where you can truly capitalise on your ability to make and win arguments.

About us
Amnesty International is a worldwide movement of people standing up for human rights. Our network extends to more than two million members and subscribers in more than 150 countries around the world. Each one of us is outraged by human rights abuses but inspired by hope for a better world - and together we work to improve human rights through campaigning and international solidarity.  This year Amnesty launched its biggest and most ambitious global campaign to date, the Demand Dignity Campaign against the human rights violations that keep people poor.
