Position description

Amnesty International (AI) is establishing an office in Indonesia. We are seeking a proven expert on Indonesia, to lead on the development and implementation of overarching research and campaigning strategies that deliver lasting impact on national human rights priorities.

As a research-based campaigning organization, investigating and documenting human rights issues is fundamental to our advocacy and lobbying work. Our Indonesia team requires a researcher to take the lead in initiating human rights research and action by providing national and thematic expertise, excellent research skills and sound political judgement. A campaign oriented approach to your work is essential. You will be required to conduct and co-ordinate research activities, monitor, investigate and analyse political, legal and social developments and human rights conditions, give authoritative advice on these areas and prepare human rights action materials. 

With experience of working on human rights issues, you must have first-hand in-depth knowledge and experience of Indonesia and an understanding and awareness of the culture. You'll have a background in activism, academia, law or journalism with the ability to identify and thoroughly investigate those issues and ensure our voice has authority. You will need proven research and communication skills, impartial political judgement, coupled with strong strategic thought. Fluency in English is essential, including excellent writing skills. 

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. Already our network of almost seven million members and supporters is making a difference in 150 countries. 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.

Please note that this role will only be based in Jakarta. There will be a 3 month probation period for all postholders. 


Amnesty International is committed to creating and sustaining a working environment in which everyone has an equal opportunity to fulfill their potential and we welcome applications from suitably qualified people from all sections of the community.
