Senior Director - Amnesty International, London

For fifty 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. And in doing so, we’ve changed thousands of lives for the better. Forging ahead, we’re looking for an exceptional facilitator and leader to support and coordinate Amnesty International’s global operations.

About the role

In this high profile role as part of the International Secretariat’s Senior Leadership team, you’ll take overall responsibility for the operations of our regional offices. That means overseeing the initial recruitment of, and offering ongoing support to, the regional hub directors, as well as directing and coordinating all regional operations – supporting the planning and execution of regional work, motivating staff and management and making sure stakeholders are engaged and delivering to objectives throughout the regions. It also means creating, implementing and enforcing policies and strategies – setting out a clear and cohesive direction to promote effective communication across the regions and ensure our Regional Management Teams take a consistent global approach to their work across all offices. Put simply, you’ll make sure the entire Amnesty International operation is pulling in the same direction.

About you

The scope of this role can’t be underestimated. Which is why we’re seeking a Senior Director with extensive experience of managing cross-functional delivery in a multi-site global organisation; preferably in the area of global justice and human rights. You will have an exceptional record of managing organisational change, integrating activity and influencing business direction; challenging conflict and taking an innovative approach to delivering solutions. Your leadership skills will be second to none – inspiring, motivating and guiding your teams, generating the trust and confidence of managers and staff, and representing the organisation on a global scale. But just as importantly, you’ll have a solid knowledge of the challenges faced by an organisation dedicated to the promotion of an ethical and just civil society, social change and public advocacy. And, of course, you’ll be genuinely passionate about making a difference.
