Amnesty International Vacancy: Finance & Office Manager - Mexico City

Amnesty International Vacancy: Finance & Office Manager - Mexico City
$66,540 per annum
Mexico City, Mexico

For over 50 years, we’ve been campaigning for human rights wherever justice, freedom and truth are denied. We’ve reshaped policies, challenged governments and taken corporations to task. In doing so, we’ve changed thousands of lives for the better. Join Amnesty at our new regional office in Mexico and you will too.

Taking control of all things finance for our Americas regional office, you’ll play a key part in shaping the International Secretariat’s presence in the region. Implementing our global policies and putting in place local processes and systems will be instrumental to our initial and ongoing operational success. As you would expect, you will be monitoring budgets, regularly reporting to local and international management and ensuring we meet all the relevant statutory and regulatory requirements.

As well as finance, you’ll have responsibility for facilities management, legal compliance, IT and a range of HR functions. This will include securing visas for international staff, commissioning training and ensuring HR best practice. You will be technologically-savvy, and able to maintain IT systems with the back-up of our global hub in London.  You will also lead and develop a Finance and Office Assistant reporting directly to you, growing their abilities as you build a solid base for us to effect meaningful human rights change.


A qualified accountant and experienced office manager, you’ll be an expert when it comes to preparing and monitoring budgets and overseeing the smooth day-to-day management of an office. More than being methodical, organized and flexible, you’ll be confident in your ability to get an international office up and running, thanks to a history of putting in place and managing financial, administrative, HR, IT and legal systems. You’ll also be well-versed in HR, customer focused and fluent in both English and Spanish. Indeed, you’ll already have local contact networks in tax, immigration and with service contractors, along with a knowledge of local contract law.


Our aim is simple: to bring the world closer to a place where human rights are enjoyed by all. Independent, international and influential, we campaign for justice, freedom and truth wherever they’re denied. Already our network of over 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, human rights education, or online campaigning, we’re all inspired by hope for a better world. One where human rights are respected and protected by everyone, everywhere.
