Organization: Amnesty International
Closing date: 20 Jan 2017
For 50 years, we’ve been campaigning for human rights wherever justice, freedom and truth are denied. We’ve reshaped policies, challenged governments and taken corporations to task. In doing so, we’ve changed thousands of lives for the better. Join Amnesty at our new regional office in Tunisia and you will too.
ABOUT THE ROLE
As a campaigner, you will develop and implement effective advocacy and campaigning strategies in Morocco and Algeria. You will work in a multicultural environment, engaging with Amnesty International staff and members all over the world, as well as representing Amnesty with international, regional and national human rights organisations and movements.
This is an exciting role where you’ll have a huge opportunity to make a difference by developing innovative campaign tactics and techniques, capitalising on communications and social media channels, and identifying and fostering opportunities for partnership and collaboration with other social and human rights movements and communities addressing issues affecting people in Algeria and Morocco.
You have experience in campaign design and delivery, project management and planning ideally in an international campaigning organisation. You understand the strategy, methodologies and tactics behind making an impact. You’ll also have a good understanding of what it takes to mobilise people and adapt campaigns to audiences from different cultures and geographies.
With experience of working on human rights issues, you have in-depth knowledge of the socio-political and economic context in Algeria and Morocco.
You must also have the capability both to work on your own initiative and as a member of a large and diverse team, often under pressure.
You have the ability to identify opportunities to ensure our voice has authority and have a strong network. A natural collaborator, you need influential communication skills, impartial political judgement, coupled with strong strategic thinking. You have excellent written and verbal Arabic, French and English.
