Amnesty International is a global movement of more than seven million people who campaign for a world where human rights are enjoyed by all. Our aim is simple: an end to human rights abuses. 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, where human rights are respected and protected by everyone, everywhere.
Amnesty International is looking for exceptional individuals who have a track record of financial oversight and stewardship in an international context, and who share our passion for human rights, to stand for election as the movement’s International Treasurer for the period August 2015 - August 2019.
