Campaigns Programme Director -- Amnesty International, UK

Type: Fixed Term Contract
Working Hours: 35
Salary: £62,436

For over 50 years, Amnesty International (AI) has been at the forefront of human rights campaigning. Mobilising millions of people, by joining together we amplify the voice of our members and speak truth to power on issues as wide-ranging as they are important. These campaigns are worldwide movements and your challenge is to ensure they make their impact.

About the role
This vitally important role will have you overseeing the leadership, development and delivery of our diverse global campaigns. Working at a strategic level, you’ll make sure our key messages have the biggest possible impact. That means guaranteeing that our materials engage the right people and that our supporters and staff all speak with one voice. It also means creating campaign opportunities in response to external events and reacting quickly to crisis situations to keep our campaigns in the spotlight. Doing it well across such a broad spectrum takes in-depth impact evaluations, thorough risk assessment and risk management strategies and the expert management of people, budgets and expectations. More than that, it takes coordination and communication on a global scale. It’s not an easy job. But it is rewarding – ultimately, the decisions you make will help put a stop to injustice, inequality and the violation of the most basic freedoms.

About you
Thanks to an impressive history of developing and delivering global campaigns, you’ll have honed your ability to make strategic decisions while developing your staff, budget and stakeholder management skills. You’ll therefore know how to build relationships, put forward convincing arguments and influence people at every level of an organisation. More than that, you’ll bring us polished and adaptable presentation skills along with a talent for engaging a variety of audiences and media. You’ll also show sound judgement and be confident analysing the political landscape in terms of both short- and long-term campaigning opportunities. And, naturally, we’ll expect you to have an extensive, in-depth understanding of social justice and human rights issues.
