  • About us

    Our aim is simple: an end to human rights abuses. 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 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 (AI) is establishing an office in Nigeria. We are seeking a proven expert on Nigeria, to lead on the development and implementation of campaigning strategies, and to manage and coordinate action on human rights concerns that ensures a lasting impact.

    Campaigner

     

    About the role

     

    In this key role, you’ll be responsible for designing and coordinating our campaigns on Nigeria, working with researchers, legal specialists and capacity builders to build an integrated strategy for change. You’ll also provide advocacy support to Amnesty colleagues and activist partners across the region and globally. You’ll certainly make a valuable contribution to effective management of our campaigning work, but we’ll also expect you to be self-sufficient; carrying out day-to-day admin, finance and impact reporting.

     

    About you

     

    Proven campaigning skills, impartial political judgement, excellent communication skills, coupled with strong strategic thought and an open and result oriented approach to your work are essential. So is specialist knowledge of Nigeria. Expertise in one or several human rights issue relevant to West Africa region would be an asset. You must have first-hand experience of Nigeria and awareness and understanding of its cultures. Fluency in English is essential.

    Please note that this role will only be based in London for an initial, temporary period. Amnesty International will soon be establishing an office in Abuja, Nigeria where this role will be based in the long term. As a result the UK salary quoted and related contractual terms and conditions will only apply to this role while it is based in London, after which the postholder will revert to Amnesty International's Nigeria contract, and the related salary scales (details of which will be confirmed in the very near future).
