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 Dakar and you will too.

About the role:

control of all things finance for our West Africa 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 managing payroll and cash flow,
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 – 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.

About you:

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 a local language (French). Indeed, you’ll
already have local contact networks in tax, immigration and with service
contractors, along with a knowledge of local contract law.

About us:

aim is simple: an end to human rights abuses. Independent,
international and influential, we campaign for justice, freedom and
truth wherever they’re denied. And whether we’re applying pressure
through powerful research or direct lobbying, mass demonstrations or
online campaigning, we’re all inspired by hope for a better world. One
where human rights are respected and protected by everyone, everywhere.

International is a global movement of more than 7 million people who
campaign for a world where human rights are enjoyed by all.

supporters are outraged by human rights abuses but inspired by hope for
a better world – so we work to improve human rights through campaigning
and international solidarity.

We reach almost every country in the
world and have:

  • more than 2 million members and supporters who drive forward our fight for rights
  • more than 5 million activists who strengthen our calls for justice
