Job description

Amnesty International UK (AIUK) has a simple aim: an end to human rights abuses. Independent, international and influential, we campaign for justice, fairness, freedom and truth wherever they are denied. Do you want to use your skills, knowledge and experience to help change the world? You could be our new Community Organising Assistant. 

About the role 

The Movement Building and Campaigning Communities teams help us achieve our goal of being a diverse, visible and impactful people-powered movement.  

You will play an important part in building and maintaining relationships with Amnesty activists and other individuals and partners, communicating effectively with a variety of audiences, coordinating projects and supporting the delivery of large activist events. You will establish, develop and maintain administrative and budgetary systems, as well as monitor and evaluate data to achieve project and strategic objectives. 

More details about the role can be found by downloading the job description from our careers portal. 

The role may be for you if: 

  • You’re skilled in maintaining and developing administrative and budgetary systems, are an excellent communicator, good at building relationships internally and externally, and are proactive and comfortable in taking initiative. 

  • You have excellent attention to detail, problem-solving skills and can multi-task and coordinate work on several simultaneous projects. 

  • You collaborate and positively contribute to an inclusive culture. 

  • You also have good knowledge of community organising, activism and campaigning.  

Our Commitment to you 

Inclusion, Diversity, Equity, and Anti-Racism (IDEA) are at the core of our values. We want to be an organisation that tackles structural inequality and prejudice as well as be an actively anti-racist organisation. This means taking a meaningful and equitable approach to supporting and developing you and others during your time with us.  

New colleagues receive 27 days leave annually (29 after five years), as well as bank holidays (pro-rated for part time). 2-5% employee pension contributions are matched at 6-9% and we offer 6 months full pay for family leave. We offer flexible working such as compressed work patterns and job shares. See more details about our benefits here. 

Apply for this role 

We welcome applications from everyone and particularly encourage applications from people from an ethnic minority background, and people with a disability to help us achieve a balanced representation in our workforce, especially at senior grades. 

To reduce bias in our shortlisting process, AIUK operates an anonymised application process. If for any reason you prefer to apply in a different format, or require adjustments in the process, please get in touch. We are a disability confident organisation. More details of inclusion in the AIUK recruitment process can be found here. 

The vacancy may be closed early if it receives an overwhelming amount of applications.
