Are you interested in Amnesty International UK’s Section’s governance? In 2021 we will be looking to fill four vacancies on our Board of Directors.

The Amnesty International United Kingdom Section Board has 12 elected ordinary members who each serve voluntarily for three consecutive years and are then eligible for re-election for another three years. The Board oversees the running of AIUK, including finances, human resources, campaigning work, and ensuring that we meet out international obligations. 

An election will be held for four places on the Board of Amnesty International United Kingdom Section for 2021-2024. There will be vacancies for one unreserved seat, one Local Group member reserved seat and two Network reserved seats.

This is an annually elected role which candidates can apply for in the next year if not the current year due to the cyclical nature of the elections.

Applications for this role for 2020 are now closed. Please contact the Returning Officer at if you are interested in this role and let us know if you are happy for us to contact you when the position becomes available.

The Board always welcomes candidates with experience of Amnesty activism, especially those who will contribute to our diversity.
