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:
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.
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.
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.
