About Us

Amnesty International is a movement of ordinary people from across the world standing up for humanity and human rights. 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.

About the role

You will be part of the Events and Artist Relations team at Amnesty International UK and will be responsible for delivering the National Conference and AGM. This is the most important membership event in our calendar, bringing together members from around the country to discuss current campaigns and make decisions about our work going forwards. During this weekend, members of all ages will attend workshops, listen to speakers and debate and vote on resolutions that will shape our work for the year ahead and beyond. You will need to work collaboratively with teams across the organisation to create and manage an inspiring event for members which also protects and promotes our democracy.

Alongside this project, you will work with the Events and Artist Relations team to support other areas of work as required.

About you

We’re looking for someone who has demonstrable experience of managing large scale events involving multiple stakeholders.  You will need to be both diplomatic and tenacious, with the ability to consult with, and gain input from, a range of senior staff and activists with busy competing agendas. You will need good planning and organisational skills, excellent communication skills, and a good eye for detail.  We’re looking for a good team player with lots of initiative, and the ability to build strong relationships with people at all levels, both within the organisation and externally. If you fit the bill, you’ll be making a real impact, delivering one of Amnesty’s priority annual events.
