Researcher At Amnesty International (AI)

Date Posted: 17/Aug/2014
Deadline: 14/Sep/2014

Amnesty International (AI) is establishing an office in Nigeria. We are seeking a proven expert on Nigeria, to lead on the development and implementation of overarching research and campaigning strategies that deliver lasting impact on national human rights priorities.

ABOUT THE ROLE


As a research-based campaigning organization, investigating and documenting human rights issues is fundamental to our advocacy and lobbying work. Our West Africa team requires a researcher to take the lead in initiating human rights research and action by providing regional and thematic expertise, excellent research skills and sound political judgement. A campaign oriented approach to your work is essential. You will be required to conduct and co-ordinate research activities, monitor, investigate and analyse political, legal and social developments and human rights conditions, give authoritative advice on these areas and prepare human rights action materials. 

ABOUT YOU


With experience of working on human rights issues, you must have first-hand in-depth knowledge and experience of Nigeria and an understanding and awareness of the cultures of West Africa. You'll have a background in activism, academia, law or journalism with the ability to identify and thoroughly investigate those issues and ensure our voice has authority. You will need proven research and communication skills, impartial political judgement, coupled with strong strategic thought. Fluency in English is essential, including excellent writing skills. 

ABOUT US


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. Already our network of almost three million members and supporters is making a difference in 150 countries. And 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.

 

Please note that this role will only be based in London for an initial, temporary period. Amnesty International will soon be establishing an office in Abuja, Nigeria where this role will be based in the long term. As a result the UK salary quoted and related contractual terms and conditions will only apply to this role while it is based in London, after which the postholder will revert to Amnesty International's Nigeria contract, and the related salary scales (details of which will be confirmed in the very near future).
