Description de l’offre
Amnesty International is hiring a Researcher – Central Africa – West and Central Africa Regional Office
The mobile revolution. Geopolitical power shifts. A radically altered global economy. The world is changing, and so is the way that people fight for their rights. In order to be effective, Amnesty International’s (AI) International Secretariat needs to change how we work. That’s why we’ve opened a regional office in Dakar. And why we need your research expertise with us on the ground.
As well as developing specific research projects and strategies, you’ll lead our research and investigations into human rights developments yourself – both at your desk and in the field. Ready to lead assessments of crisis situations and able to prepare thorough security assessments and political briefings, you’ll work as part of a team to make sure our research is as flexible as it is effective.
You’ll also understand that building a strong contact network and representing AI externally are central to ensuring your research has impact, as is the credibility and accuracy of your reports.
You’ll have proven your ability to write and adapt research materials for a range of audiences too, and be confident communicating AI’s message externally, both in English and French. And in addition to your meticulous research skills and sharp political judgement, you’ll know how to engage with survivors of human rights abuses.
You’ll be an effective multi-tasker able to meet deadlines and manage priorities, and know how to work effectively in a team. Crucially, you’ll have an unwavering commitment to human rights.
What we hope you will do next
If you are talented, passionate about human rights and want to use your skills, knowledge and experience to change the world then we would encourage you to Apply for this Role.
