ABOUT YOU

With experience of working on human rights issues, you must have first-hand in-depth knowledge and experience of the socio-political and economic context in the MENA region, and global human rights trends.

Probably working for a charity, NGO, or government body, you’ll have already developed national and international campaigns. So you’ll know how to harness everything from on-street activism to online digital tools. As a result, you’ll have the confidence and expertise to identify relevant information quickly, understand what’s key and pinpoint the most effective means of communication. Flexible enough to adapt your approach as priorities change, you’ll also bring us a real flair for innovation and a talent for project management particularly important when time pressures are intense. Excellent communication skills in English and Arabic, both written and verbal, are vital too so you can generate motivational campaign materials that connect with a range of target audiences as well as inspire those you work with.
