Volunteer with Amnesty International UK's Reception team. 

About the role

This role is working on a busy and varied reception, assisting the reception staff in answering the telephone and face to face enquiries.

About you

We are looking for volunteers with good customer service skills, who are able to work under pressure. A good approach to handling information, being generally amenable and having good knowledge of Microsoft Office are essential. The ability to operate a switch board is desirable but not essential - relevant training will be given to all volunteers.

About us

Our aim is simple: an end to human rights abuses. Independent, international and influential, we campaign for justice, freedom and truth wherever they’re denied. Amnesty International is a global movement of more than 7 million people who campaign for a world where human rights are enjoyed by all. Our supporters are outraged by human rights abuses but inspired by hope for a better world - so we work to improve human rights through campaigning and international solidarity. We reach almost every country in the world and have:

  • more than 2 million members and supporters who drive forward our fight for rights
  • more than 5 million activists who strengthen our calls for justice

Whether we’re applying pressure through powerful research or direct lobbying, mass demonstrations or online campaigning, we’re all inspired by hope for a better world. One where human rights are respected and protected by everyone, everywhere.
