One person in three in the world lives in poverty. Oxfam is determined to change that world by mobilizing the power of people against poverty.

Around the world, Oxfam works to find practical, innovative ways for people to lift themselves out of poverty and thrive. We save lives and help rebuild livelihoods when crisis strikes. And we campaign so that the voices of the poor influence the local and global decisions that affect them. In all we do, Oxfam works with partner organizations and alongside vulnerable women and men to end the injustices that cause poverty.

Oxfam is an international confederation of 20 organizations networked together in more than 90 countries, as part of a global movement for change, to build a future free from the injustice of poverty. The Oxfam International Secretariat is currently headquartered in Nairobi, with offices in Oxford, Washington DC, New York, Brussels, Geneva, and a liaison office with the Africa Union in Addis Ababa.

This post will be part of the OI Secretariat Strategy, Confederation Development and Governance team.

Team Purpose

To lead and coordinate efforts to engage Oxfam staff and board members in creating a truly global organization and ‘worldwide influencing network’ that is rooted in the countries where it works; and achieves impact at scale by being responsive, legitimate and accountable to its stakeholders.
