Research, Campaign and Communication Assistant

Tunis | Tunis

Amnesty International is shifting its centralized International Secretariat (IS) into a more strong, coherent and visible presence in strategic locations in the global South.

In the Middle East and North Africa, we are developing a stronger presence by opening a regional office in Tunisia and de-concentrating some of the functions we currently base in the International Secretariat office in London, including our research and campaign capacity. Being closer to the ground will enable us to operate with greater speed and relevance and to be more agile and responsible to the demands of our human rights agenda.

About the role

Based in Tunis, you'll support the country teams as they develop and roll out research, campaigning, communication and growth strategies. That means maintaining a broad overview of relevant political and human rights developments; liaising with national and local contacts and monitoring media updates and internet searches to keep team members and other regional offices up to date. You'll also take charge of the admin for the country teams - everything from planning field research missions and making travel arrangements, to scheduling meetings and drafting and producing vital documents. Producing regular reports on the budget for the department, you'll closely monitor expenses throughout the financial year. And coordinating the work of the team in response to crisis, you'll be central to their ongoing success.

Please note: Once we have received 100 applications, the role will automatically close.

About you

Thanks to similar experience in a high pressure environment, you'll have no problem prioritising and coordinating multiple projects with minimal supervision. A clear, articulate communicator, you'll have a high standard of English, French and Arabic and as you'd expect, you'll need excellent administrative, secretarial and IT skills as well as plenty of initiative and a proactive approach to problem solving. More than that, you'll show agility and resilience when dealing with change, backed up by regional knowledge of the North Africa region. Add the financial awareness to produce accurate budget reports, and you could soon prove yourself indispensable to our regional office team.
