Amnesty International Job Vacancy: Regional Activism and Youth Coordinator - Bangkok, Thailand

Regional Activism and Youth Coordinator - Asia Pacific 
For 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 regional office in Bangkok and you will too.

In this role in one of our newest regional offices, you'll have a huge opportunity to make a difference -  both to activism in Amnesty International (AI) and to young people across Asia-Pacific. Coordinating the development and delivery of activism and youth strategies, plans and projects, you'll inspire, empower and help mobilise a new generation of activists and ensure their active participation in a uniquely challenging human rights landscape. And we'll also look to you to provide support and advice to our national teams and expertly grow their capacity and activist structures. Doing that well means analysing current trends and sharing advanced mobilisation techniques with the global movement. All while working closely with activism and youth coordinators in the region and with the global Activism and Youth team, keeping in mind our overarching strategies and doing everything in your power to deliver high-quality, activism and youth-focused solutions.

You'll be an experienced campaigner who understands the strategy, methodologies and tactics behind making an impact. You'll also have plenty of experience of activism and membership organisations -  really knowing what it takes to mobilise people and adapt campaigns to audiences from different cultures and geographies. But in addition to being able to support others to develop skills to write inspirational, informative materials and use online and offline techniques to their best effect, you'll have a particular focus on youth work. You have a solid understanding of active youth participation mechanisms and have experience of growing a vibrant and active youth constituency. This will be something you can do fluently in at least one Regional language and English. Beyond that, you'll also be confident planning and managing multiple projects and show fine judgement when it comes to campaign capacity building, leveraging technology to and communicating in a multicultural setting.

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

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
Our aim is simple: an end to human rights abuses. Independent, international and influential, we campaign for justice, fairness, 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. 

Benefits include 37 days annual leave (inclusive of public holidays and grace days), pension scheme, employee assistance programme, life assurance and many more benefits designed to suit your own personal lifestyle. All of this, in a professional, engaging environment.
