We bring change for the better worldwide. But to improve human rights in over 150 countries we must always strive to improve ourselves. Our Organizational Development professionals make us more effective in the countries that need our help most. In this role, you’ll strengthen our operations in Africa.


This crucial role requires a skilled professional in the field of organisational development and capacity building to provide support to its Sections in the Africa, with a focus on West Africa. The work will involve providing support to the national sections to build their capacity in the areas of governance, management, strategic and operational planning, monitoring, evaluation, learning and growth of members and supporters.

The focus of the work will be four selected countries of West Africa but can involve one or two from other regions in Africa. The job involves frequent travel to those countries. This role involves building governance capacity of boards; working with the director and other staff in helping establish/improve internal programme and office management systems and processes; supporting planning, monitoring, evaluation and learning capacities, supporting sharing and learning among sections; strengthening ‘regional forums’ and capacity support on enabling growing the membership base. Direct experience of working within the region is essential and knowledge of French and English must.


You must have excellent knowledge of organisational development, capacity building and learning in the context of a small NGO, with direct experience of working specifically within the Africa region. You’ll have the ability to organise and facilitate training workshops; good knowledge of monitoring and evaluation; strong project management skills; well versed in French and English; strong relationship building skills, ability to produce high quality reports in English; and strong strategic thinking and political judgement. You’ll thrive when working under pressure and with flexible working hours. You should have an excellent knowledge of and work experience on the region.


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.

Questions Typiques
Why Should I Hire You? The most overlooked question is also the one most candidates are unprepared to answer. This is often because job applicants don't do their homework on the position. Your job is to illustrate why you are the most qualified candidate. Review the job description and qualifications very closely to identify the skills and knowledge that are critical to the position, then identify experiences from your past that demonstrate those skills and knowledge.
Questions à poser
What have you enjoyed most about working here? This question allows the interviewer to connect with you on a more personal level, sharing his or her feelings. The answer will also give you unique insight into how satisfied people are with their jobs there. If the interviewer is pained to come up with an answer to your question, it’s a big red flag.
