Regional Impact and Planning Advisor
ABOUT THE ROLE
As a research-based campaigning organization, being able to understand when and how we can influence those in power and achieve human rights impact is essential. Our Global Strategy and Impact programme, who leads Amnesty’s planning, monitoring, evaluating and learning work, is looking to recruit a role with a specific regional focus. You will provide strategic support to Amnesty’s Africa regional offices to maximise their human rights impact. You will lead the development and assessment of regional strategies, ensure coherence with global impact analysis, and build a culture of learning and innovation to share with the whole Amnesty movement. This is an exciting new role to help push Amnesty’s human rights agenda in Africa.
With strong experience in strategy and theory of change development for social change and human rights impact, you must have first-hand experience of leading impact-oriented planning processes as well as developing monitoring and evaluation frameworks. You will be a strong facilitator – being able to bring together and work through a wide range of skills, experiences and areas of work – and be open to collaboration and testing new tactics and strategies to maximise human rights impact. You will need proven understanding of how social change happens, impartial political judgement, and strong strategic foresight. Excellent verbal and written communications skills in English and French.
Amnesty International is a global movement of more than 7 million people who campaign for a world where human rights are enjoyed by all. We reach almost every country in the world and have:

Our aim is simple: an end to human rights abuses. Independent, international and influential, we campaign for justice, fairness, freedom and truth wherever they’re denied.

One where human rights are respected and protected by everyone, everywhere.
