A good place to learn new skills including campaign, media reviews and research skills etc..and help serve the public and international community. I was a volunteer unpaid resource working with a very understanding senior researcher, so when I found a new paid role I moved on...otherwise the job in amnesty was rewarding and good. I assume though the campaign and researcher roles in the long term can be tough - having to deal with the sad human rights violations of this world and sometimes feeling unable to make positive change in individual humans lives or overall human rights of different nations. Probably needs a very giving heart and a very hard mind to deal with it. I assume pay for someone like me in those day was in the region of £25K.
Ability to learn new skills and help the international community of people, learning new local and international legislative process etc.
A very relaxed atmosphere, even when under pressure with deadlines.Very helpful colleagues and an especially helpful Senior Manager.I was made to feel very welcome and that I had made a difference.
Working from home during Covid was very easy. Regular catch ups.
I had my own campaign which I was leading. Great in-house training in London. Great solidarity movement. Hard to grow if you have ambition. It's a collegial, global environment even if your not based in the HQ. Internal communications good.
Een interessant en leerzaam bedrijf met name als je geïnteresseerd bent in mensenrechten. Mogelijkheden tot zelfstudie en eventueel doorgroei mogelijkheden afhankelijk van de afdeling waarvoor je werkt. Vriendelijke en behulpzame collega's.

Do these reviews help you learn more about working at Amnesty International?
an excellent entry level job with enough capacity to be full time career, the workers and looked after and rewarded for their work and paid more than fairly
Amnesty International in itself is a good organization but this job has a high turnover rate. Why? Well, some people aren't fit walking ten miles in the cold/rain but others no matter how great of a canvasser you are can be fired for a "negative attitude". If you like having job security then this isn't the job for you since they're more concerned about maintaining a number one status than anything. Loved the people I met here but other than that the work environment was messy, stressful, and in the end disappointing.
Amnesty International-USA is a very challenging and interesting place to work i met a great diversity of staff members and also clients, however working mostly outdoor in the cold posed great health challenges and risks which I couldn't endure
Amnesty is a huge organisations (600 staff in the HG alone) with many regional and national offices spread around the world. This means that communication can be a bit challenging and mostly done online. However, what Amnesty does has a lot of value and we can see that not only from the impact we can document but from the amount of partners reaching out to Amnesty on a daily basis.
A day at work for me always be very typical, because I go to work focusing on getting my day over with as easy as possible. I have met a lot of people from different states and they acknowledge me as they enter the building. My managers are the best they make sure we not having any problems or a bad day they make sure we stay warm in okay. It’s no Very Hard part of my job to because once you train in go through everything you have to do your be great. The most Enjoyable part about my job is knowing waking up seeing smiles walk into the building
The people in the community were mostly mean towards us. I don't like standing in one place for too long. I'd be standing there for hours. The pay was great, but there was no job security whatsoever.
I was placed at AIA in a student placement for six months. The organisation demonstrates to be highly passionate about defending human rights however the impact was limited due to internal inconsistencies. We experienced gaslighting behaviour from our direct supervisor, contradicting direction for tasks, limited/no supervision and debriefing opportunities and were met with defensiveness when these concerns were raised. Furthermore, there was limited support from higher management in acknowledging and solving these concerns which resulted in the student cohort to feel unsafe in the work environment. Teams aside from the Refugee Team have been warm and welcoming however there are significant concerns which has convinced me not to work here again.
