Research, Campaigns and Communications Assistant
About the role
Based in Bangkok, Thailand, you’ll support the Southeast Asia and Pacific office as they develop and roll out research, campaigning, communication and growth strategies. That means maintaining a broad overview of relevant political and human rights developments in the region; liaising with national and local contacts and monitoring media updates and internet searches to keep team members and other regional offices up to date. You’ll also take charge of the admin – everything from planning field research missions and making travel arrangements, to scheduling meetings and drafting and producing vital documents. Producing regular reports on the budget for the department, you’ll closely monitor expenses throughout the financial year. And coordinating the work of the team in response to crisis, you’ll be central to their ongoing success.
Thanks to similar experience in a similar professional environment, you’ll have no problem prioritising and coordinating multiple projects with minimal supervision. A clear, articulate communicator, you’ll have a high standard of written and spoken English. You will need excellent administrative, secretarial and IT skills as well as plenty of initiative and a proactive approach to problem solving. You will show agility and resilience when dealing with multiple priorities, crucially backed up by your organisation skills and sound knowledge of human rights issues in the region. You will also be able to produce accurate budget reports. Campaigns and/or research experience is desirable.
