As Amnesty International's Campaigner in the Southern Region (Angola and Mozambique), you will lead on the development and implementation of overarching campaign strategies to deliver impact in relation to agreed human rights thematic priorities, providing campaign expertise, campaign management, political judgment and analytical, communication and representational skills. The thematic focus will include but not limited to criminal justice system, policing and human rights, Human Rights Defenders, business and human rights, freedom of expression, assembly and association, socio-economic rights and strategic partnerships. In addition, the role will include leadership and coordination of campaign on Angola and Mozambique in line with the approved strategy for Southern Africa.

A practised campaigner, you'll know how to create successful campaign strategies and build awareness through powerful actions and recognized techniques. You'll also understand the importance of flexibility and be ready to adapt and evolve your plans. We'll expect you to understand human rights and the political landscape within Southern Africa, both in general terms and specifically, with knowledge of Angola and Mozambique and key thematic areas. You'll be able to translate that knowledge into campaign materials and creative initiatives that inspire activism online and off, and have the fluency to express complex ideas in English and Portuguese. You'll have a network of civil society and government contacts and the clout to represent AI to audiences ranging from civil society groups and governments to our global membership. Beyond that, you'll be a real team player relishing close collaboration with our researchers, colleagues and partners.
