Job Description

For the past 50 years Amnesty International (AI) has brought people together to fight for human rights. We’ve lobbied, protested and mobilised all over the world for human rights impact. We have been critical to the development of international standards through our engagement with the United Nations and regional human rights bodies.

This is an exciting opportunity to lead the advocacy program responsible for Amnesty International work at the UN and regional human rights bodies. The work of the program ranges from shaping the agenda of UN Women to helping define the Universal Periodic Review to lobbying the UN Security Council. You will manage advocacy teams in our New York, London and Geneva offices and will work with our staff in Amnesty International chapters around the world. You are a strategic thinker with strong interpersonal skills, an excellent communicator and a committed manager. You thrive in a fast-paced environment with competing demands; you enjoy giving strategic and political advice while overseeing staff performance; and are able to reframe arguments in ways that make governments question their conventional wisdom. Your work will centre on ways to build and improve our capacity to have a positive impact for human rights. You will help AI maintain its leadership role in promoting human rights at intergovernmental forums and in capitals under the authority of the Senior Director for International Law and Policy.


Dynamic, results-driven and an expert in designing and implementing advocacy strategies, you are an experienced leader and team player with a proven ability to develop and implement innovative strategies, plans and communications at the local and global level. Probably from an NGO background, you will also be comfortable dealing with high level government officials. Passionate about human rights you will understand the effects of social change. You will know all the remote management of staff in multi-cultural, multi-lingual environments.
