Amnesty International: Advocacy & Policy Manager- Wellington

Amnesty International is a global movement for human rights. When injustice happens to one person, it matters to us all.

Together, we are powerful. By mobilising the humanity in everyone, we can create a world where our most basic human rights are enjoyed by all.

What we have at Amnesty International New Zealand are inspiring human rights campaigns. What we need from you is the resourcefulness and the relentlessness to advance our campaign objectives via advocacy, by building government relations and by advising on and devising human rights focussed policy.

As our advocacy and policy manager for Amnesty International you’ll need to:

  • Plan and strategise to make change happen.

  • Maintain and build on Amnesty International’s relationships with the New Zealand Government to promote human rights.

  • Sustain and advance connections with civil society

  • Provide expert advice and briefings on Amnesty International’s policy and research

  • Work with other advocates globally to ensure international human rights mechanisms are respected and advanced

  • Conduct background research to inform strategy on campaign planning and priorities.

  • Be an excellent communicator who is able to be both persuasive and diplomatic.

  • Be prepared to work remotely and independently. You’ll be based in a small Wellington office while most of the team is based in Auckland. Monthly travel to Auckland would be likely.

In return we’ll provide:

  • Amazing work opportunities to change people’s lives.

  • A great bunch of workmates where humour is a currency and being down-to-earth is a way of life.

  • Opportunities to travel to other Amnesty International offices globally to upskill, network and defend human rights.

  • You will probably have 3 years of experience in a similar role, so convince us that your time in research, advisory, policy work or public relations in any field can be adapted to what we need here. If you are a bit of a New Zealand politics and legislation nerd, we guarantee we will celebrate that as well.

We particularly encourage people with a background of working in prevention of violence against women, with refugees, with indigenous communities or in the justice sector to apply.

We are looking to pay our newest team member between NZD$64-70k alongside a phone and laptop at your disposal. 
Applications close: Friday, December 22, 2017.
