For over fifty years, we’ve been campaigning for human rights wherever justice, freedom and truth are denied. In this role, you will support the work of our Northern Ireland Campaigns Manager, helping to secure political influence and policy and legislative change to secure human rights-compatible abortion access in Northern Ireland.

About the role

This is an excellent opportunity for a highly efficient and effective Campaigns Assistant to play an important part in a vibrant and busy office until December 2020. A pro-active, enthusiastic, can-do person with demonstrable administrative experience, you will ensure our administrative systems are efficiently developed and maintained. Together, you’ll develop and manage the office systems that underpin the work of the Campaigns Manager, which will include, monitoring political developments, liaising with the offices of parliamentary and government officials, supporting litigation and assisting in the dissemination of our policy and programme work.

About you

In addition to demonstrable administrative experience (including maintaining systems and organising meetings), you must also have excellent communication, organisational and IT skills. You will need to be flexible and have the ability to use your initiative in a demanding work environment. Knowledge or experience of NI and UK political environments and their processes and procedures will also be of an advantage.

For further information please see the attached job description.

About us

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 seven 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.
