About Avaaz

Avaaz is an international campaigning and advocacy organization that provides its global membership of almost 70 million people with opportunities to make our world a better place.

We’re one of the world’s largest online global campaigning movements, with people from every corner in the world taking action to close the gap between the world we have and the world most people everywhere want. Our model enables people to channel their voices into a powerful collective force at tipping point moments to impact the pressing global challenges of our time, from climate and ecological collapse to human rights abuses and the dismantling of democracy. Here’s some epic victories we’ve achieved over the years!

The Avaaz team of about 100 staff is spread across 6 continents, campaigns in 21 languages, and is funded through small donations from individual Avaaz members, no big money from governments or corporations. This keeps us independent and allows us to keep a laser focus on doing what the world needs.

  • The know-how to extract to the fullest extent from Meta and Google advertising platforms, with a proven track record of successfully crafting, executing, and scaling up paid online advertising.
  • A passion for data, with the skills to track, measure and benchmark campaign performance, adapt strategies, and make recommendations accordingly, especially Google and Meta analytics.
  • Proven project management and briefing skills with an ability to confidently and clearly communicate on complex tasks with all levels of the organisation, and with external partners, agencies and creators.
  • A deep understanding of social media, content creation, and building online communities. 
  • Eagerness to explore new technologies and platforms to enhance campaign effectiveness.
