Oxfam is convinced that people have the power to end poverty. All they need is an opportunity. Oxfam is committed to make sure everyone gets that chance. That is why we support local projects in developing countries, why we lobby governments and companies to listen to the poorest people, and why we campaign to involve both men and women in our work. Oxfam is a confederation of 17 organizations that works together to increase the impact of its long term development and humanitarian responses.
Oxfam’s Global Humanitarian Team is looking for an Emergency Response Manager to join our elite team.
  • Do you have a “can do” attitude and drive and self – confidence to shape our humanitarian programmes?
  • Do you enjoy problem solving and multi-tasking in the most challenging environments?
  • Do you have a genuine interest and commitment to make a long-term difference to those affected by crises and disasters?
  • Do you have knowledge of French, Spanish or Arabic language?
If you are a talented manager, have proven humanitarian experience in a number of different emergency contexts, excellent communication skills and are able to motivate and lead a team, then we want to work with you!

As a Programme Manager, you will be typically responsible for managing a specific programme area, typically teams from 10 – 100 people including technical experts (such as Water, hygiene and sanitation (WASH), food security and a range of support services) and manage budgets up to £3 million. You will work with limited supervision and autonomously sets programme level objectives. You might also be deployed at capital level to coordinate a country-wide emergency response.

You will be part of a team of approximately 80 HSPs members comprising various different technical functions, and you will be deployed by Oxfam’s Global Humanitarian Team. Sometimes you will be deployed into our biggest and most challenging emergency responses, sometimes into chronic, less visible crises. You will be deployed from your home country. You must be prepared to travel at short notice to emergency response countries (deployments are normally 3-6 months, but can be longer).

Location
Most of the year, you will be deployed in countries where Oxfam is involved in humanitarian programming or preparations. Your residency (in between deployments) can be anywhere where an international airport is nearby and where working permits can be obtained.
