ABOUT THE ROLE
We are looking for an experienced campaigner to drive our campaigning work to develop strategies and actions to mobilize the organization’s worldwide membership to campaign effectively against human rights violations in Russia. You will support our worldwide membership, including devising campaigning strategies and developing written and other campaigning materials, based on research and liaising with Amnesty International sections and partners on the ground.
Drawing on your track record of successful campaign planning and co-ordination, you will develop campaign strategies and activities against human rights abuses in Russia, with an emphasis on restrictive laws and repressive policies particularly affecting the rights to freedom of expression, peaceful assembly and association. Joining a supportive and experienced team of researchers and campaigners, you will bring a deep knowledge of Russia and will have proven campaigning exposure, first-hand campaign knowledge along with sound political judgement and an interest and understanding of human rights in the region. You will interact with local NGOs, lawyers and activists as well as other parts of Amnesty International and will have the sensitivity to the cultures and peoples of the region, effective writing and communication skills and an understanding of membership organizations. Working knowledge of Russian is desirable, knowledge of other languages spoken in the region is an asset.
Amnesty International is a global movement of more than 7 million people who campaign for a world where human rights are enjoyed by all. We reach almost every country in the world and have:
- more than 2 million members and supporters who drive forward our fight for rights
- more than 5 million activists who strengthen our calls for justice
Our aim is simple: an end to human rights abuses. Independent, international and influential, we campaign for justice, fairness, freedom and truth wherever they’re denied. And whether we’re applying pressure through powerful research or direct lobbying, mass demonstrations or online campaigning, we’re all inspired by hope for a better world. One where human rights are respected and protected by everyone, everywhere.
At Amnesty International, we are passionate about what we do and we are proud of our achievements as a movement. To compensate our employees for the critical work they do, we reward them through a combination of an attractive and sector competitive salary and benefits package, high levels of engagement and involvement, and a commitment to employee development.
Benefits include 37 days annual leave (inclusive of public holidays and grace days), pension scheme, employee assistance programme, life assurance and many more benefits designed to suit your own personal lifestyle. All of this, in a professional, engaging environment.
