Job Description

Amnesty International's Global Fundraising and Engagement Department is looking to recruit an experienced Project Manager for a Capital Fundraising Appeal on a fixed-term contract for one year initially, based in either London or Switzerland.


Amnesty International's Secretariat and Amnesty Switzerland are jointly developing a Capital Appeal to raise significant gifts from philanthropists and major donors for an exciting programme of work on Crisis Response and Refugees.

The Capital Appeal Project Manager will be responsible for project managing the delivery of the Capital Appeal plan. The successful applicant will work with multiple stakeholders to ensure that agreed outputs are delivered in an integrated way on time and to budget.

The post holder will be the key coordination and liaison point between International Programmes and Fundraising for programme information. This will include coordinating communications with Amnesty entities across the movement on the Capital Appeal, developing content, reports and other materials to support major donor fundraising for the Capital Appeal both from global and Swiss donors, as well as across the movement.


  • You will have extensive project management experience in an international fundraising environment and ideally have previously worked on a Capital Appeal.
  • As Project Manager for a new Capital Appeal, you will be an enthusiastic problem-solver with strong planning and coordination skills. You will combine excellent communication and interpersonal skills with a willingness to try new approaches to help Amnesty International to make an even bigger impact.
  • Your confidence in working with multiple stakeholders at any one time will enable you to adapt to shifting priorities, demands and timelines in order to deliver and achieve maximum results.


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.

At Amnesty International, we are passionate about what we do and we are proud of our achievements as a movement. To compensate our employees for the wonderful work they do, we reward them through a combination of an attractive and sector competitive salary and benefits package, high levels of engagement and involvement, and a commitment to employee development.
