Amnesty International is the world’s leading human rights movement. Our strength comes from our movement of people who campaign and take action for human rights. Community Organising is crucial to how we build and diversify the Amnesty movement in the UK. We’re now looking for a skilled Community Organising Manger to lead our work supporting key activist communities in the UK to organise and campaign for human rights change here and across the world.
About the role
This new role will be responsible for building and maintaining strong and sustainable communities campaigning for human rights change across the UK. You’ll lead the strategic thinking to recruit, empower and support activist leaders to build authentic campaigning communities. You will help increase Amnesty’s diversity, legitimacy and inclusion in order to achieve positive human rights impact in and with those communities in the UK and in the world. You will manage a team of 3 Community Organisers and build relationships directly with lead activists across the UK.
Our aim is simple: to bring the world closer to a place where human rights are enjoyed by all. 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, human rights education, or online campaigning, we’re all inspired by hope for a better world. One where human rights are respected and protected by everyone, everywhere.
You will have significant knowledge and experience of community organising, communications and campaigning. You will enjoy working with others and have excellent relationship-building skills to build partnerships and to deliver specific projects. You will have experience of managing staff teams as well as working with volunteers. A forward- thinking, dynamic, positive and ‘can-do’ attitude is essential.
