About the role
This is a new role for the region, and key in furthering the Global Security Team’s ability to support Amnesty operations worldwide. It provides an exciting opportunity to help shape our capabilities in Sub-Saharan Africa whilst working on a varied and challenging array of security projects.
Reporting to Amnesty’s Director of Global Security & Workplace, the Regional Security Manager (RSM) will ensure our processes in Sub-Saharan Africa best support the region’s needs, and contribute to furthering an effective security culture across all offices located there.
