Vacancy: International Human Rights Education Project Coordinator at Amnesty International (London)

Amnesty International's Human Rights Education Team is seeking an International Human Rights Education Project Coordinator for our Education for Human Dignity project. Please see below for information about the role. The position is a fixed term contract starting immediately to 31 May 2013 and is based in London, UK.  
Closing date is 7 November 2012.


About the role:
As a valued member of the Human Rights Education Team, you will oversee the final stages of Amnesty International’s Education for Human Dignity project and ensure its adequate closure, in particular working with internal partners and external donors to ensure that the project is coordinated, implemented, reported on and evaluated within the agreed timeline and resources.

The Education for Human Dignity Project aims to raise awareness, inform debate and enable action in order to tackle human rights abuses that drive and deepen poverty. Through human rights education and participatory approaches, young people and those that work with them (including teachers, youth workers and multipliers) have an increased understanding of the relationship between poverty and human rights, and will be equipped and empowered to take action and call for human rights solutions to poverty.

About you:

You will have demonstrated experience in human rights education project management, planning, implementation, monitoring and evaluation. Your experience will include managing externally-funded projects (ideally by EuropeAid), with proven skills in reporting to external donors and partners, financial management, problem identification, stakeholder engagement, and evaluation.  You will have knowledge of monitoring and evaluating of projects related to human rights, human rights education or other education for social change, as well as an understanding of and practical experience in using human rights education methodology to deliver human rights education projects. You will also have experience in drafting substantial external and internal reports and briefings, including reports based on results based management and theory of change frameworks, as well as experience in monitoring and overseeing large complex multi-currency budgets.

About us:
Our aim is simple: an end to human rights abuses. 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 conducting human rights education or 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.
