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 new skilled Community Organiser to lead our work engaging and supporting activist communities at a regional and local level.
About the role
This new role will be responsible for building and maintaining effective communities who campaign for human rights change at a local level. This role will develop, diversify and grow AIUK’s existing strong network of local groups and work directly with groups and lead activists. The role will build on AIUK’s Football Welcomes programme to create positive experiences and positively change perceptions of refugees and asylum seekers by working in partnership with Football and other partners in communities throughout the UK.
You will have significant knowledge and experience of community organising and campaigning in order to achieve change. You will enjoy working with others and have excellent relationship-building skills to build partnerships and to deliver specific projects. You will have excellent interpersonal skills and the ability to communicate effectively with individuals and groups from a range of backgrounds as well as having excellent organisational and administrative skills. You will share our passion for human rights and for inspiring others to engage and campaign for change.
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.
