Working in over 45 countries, the global ActionAid family helps to build a fair and just world where everyone can claim their rights. The Right to Education Project (RTE) aims to promote mobilisation and accountability on the right to education.
Housed by ActionAid and working in partnership with the Global Campaign for Education and Amnesty International, RTE conducts research, develops advocacy tools and builds capacity of education activists worldwide, building bridges across disciplines – human rights, education and development.
Join us as the Right to Education Project Communications Officer and help us deliver on our aim of ensuring every child has the right to education.
As part of the RTE team, you will communicate legal content and advocacy tools to education advocates across the globe via the RTE website (www.right-to-education.org).
You will undertake a revamp of RTE’s extensive website transforming it into an online hub for education rights.
You will lead outreach efforts with education activists to engage in online information sharing and learning. You will monitor global developments on the right to education highlighting opportunities for mobilization through the website, social media and a quarterly e-bulletin.
From supporting training workshops to contributing to funding proposals, you’ll play a key role in ensuring the success and high profile of RTE. With a postgraduate degree you will have a solid understanding of international human rights law and a strong background in economic, social and cultural rights, especially as it relates to the right to education.
You’ll have excellent English written communication skills with prior experience of communicating complex legal information to diverse audiences.
With strong networking skills and experience of working with online activist communities, you’ll bring creative ideas for developing and organizing RTE’s online tools and resources. Ideally, you’ll have experience of building capacities using a human rights based approach.
