Nairobi, Kenya


The purpose of this job is to provide logistical, administrative, and programmatic execution and community management support for two major AIK projects focusing on digital rights. This role will also assist in planning, budgeting, monitoring, and learning of the Digital Rights Team. The first project is working to strengthen data governance in Kenya through citizen-responsive guidelines and practices as the Data Protection Act (2019) is operationalised in Kenya. The second project sits within the global Amnesty RIGHTS Click Programme. It focuses on working directly with children and young people to advance their digital rights, health and well-being, campaigning to hold tech companies accountable for their human rights record in the digital age.


Amnesty International Kenya is an integral part of a global movement of more than 10 million people who take injustice personally. Registered in Kenya and affiliated with Amnesty International, the organisation has been at the forefront of promoting and protecting human rights for all.

Guided by our new Strategic Framework 2021-2023, Amnesty International Kenya believes in a society where every human being understands and claims their rights and freedoms. We exist to enable circles of conscience and movements capable of advancing full citizenship rights for all and an effective and accountable state.

Together with our national board, supporters, members, and partners both in civil society and the state, we will create an activist culture that strengthens public expression, association and peaceful assembly and reduces discriminatory inequalities, corruption, and impunity at national and county levels.

All applicants to this position will be required to demonstrate a commitment to Amnesty’s organisational values and vision and Kenyan Constitution and be familiar with rights-based organising, citizen empowerment and an anti-discriminatory approach to social justice. In addition, all successful candidates will have demonstrated an ability to work in teams and a proven ability to multi-task and work to deadlines, sometimes under pressure.
