About the team

Individuals at Risk (IAR) is an area of work within Amnesty International’s Priority Campaigns team. The IAR team lead campaigning on cases of specific individuals, or groups of individuals around the world who are having their human rights abused in the most serious ways – from death row prisoners in the USA to political prisoners in countries around the world. We deal with both short term, reactive casework as well as longer, more strategic campaigning on specific cases. The IAR team also supports other areas of the organisation to work on or with cases.

About the role

The Amnesty International UK Priority Campaigns team has a full-time fixed term, six month, vacancy for a Campaigns Coordinator in the Individuals At Risk (IAR) Programme.

The Campaign Coordinator (IAR) helps coordinate the delivery of work by the Individuals At Risk team, working closely with the IAR Campaign Manager to support tactical opportunities for campaigning on cases, delivering campaigns and project work, including our annual Write for Rights campaign, supporting our volunteer Country Coordinator activists, and maintaining the organisation’s portfolio of casework.

Additionally, this role includes undertaking monitoring and evaluation on the team’s long-term casework campaigning, keeping track of activity on cases and providing reports and feedback to the team and wider teams at AIUK.

About you

With an interest in how human rights change happens, and enthusiasm for supporting a busy campaigns team,  you will also have experience in developing processes and systems for delivering and monitoring campaigning activity. You will have previous experience in working with volunteer activists, and you will be comfortable at working with others across an organisation. You will need strong organisational skills and be able to work unsupervised, using your initiative. You must also have excellent communication skills and be confident in actively managing conflicting deadlines.

About us

Our aim is simple: an end to human rights abuses. Independent, international and influential, we campaign for justice, fairness, freedom and truth wherever they are denied. Already our network of over seven million people is making a difference in almost every country in the world. Whether we are applying pressure through powerful research or direct lobbying, mass demonstrations or online campaigning, we are all inspired by hope for a better world. One where human rights are enjoyed by all.
