Interviews: w/c 18th or 25th January 2016’ 
Confederation Development Officer
 
 
Contract: 12 month fixed term (with possibility of extension)
 
Based in Mexico, Brazil, India
(subject to being able to establish a contract of employment) or Oxford.
(Other Oxfam office locations in the Global South may also be
considered subject to being able to establish a contract of employment)
 
Salary: In line with Oxfam values and according to location.
 
 
 
Candidates must have the legal right to be employed in the location of the post at the time of application.
 
 
 
Oxfam International is an equal opportunities employer, committed to diversity within our organization.
 
 
 
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.
 
 
 
About the Role
 
 
We
have an exciting new role in our expanding OI Secretariat Confederation
Development team that will be based either in the OI Secretariat in
Oxford or in an Oxfam office location in the Global South.
 
 
 
Oxfam
envisions a future where we are a more interdependent network, driven
more by knowledge, organized for more simplicity internally and more
globally balanced. The Secretariat takes an active role in developing
new affiliates and providing strategic, technical and financial support
for new or potential Oxfams (most recently in Brazil and South Africa).
Given the separate histories and ways of working of the different
affiliates, the Secretariat also plays an important role in harmonizing
systems that will enable confederation-wide initiatives to work more
effectively providing capacity building support for new affiliates.
 
 
 
The
job is interesting, often complex, and will challenge your skills,
experience and competencies. The jobs will expose you to diversity and
requires a facilitator, networker and broker that strive for high-levels
of quality delivery.
 
 
 
If you have proven experience in
managing change within an international organization, and have
successfully delivered against organizational planning and processes,
then we’d like to hear from you.
 
 
About you
 
You
have a flair and liking for collaborative working, and the ability to
work in a decentralized virtual team. Your working relationships will be
across boundaries and work will be delivered in matrix team structure.
You will have an ability to adjust to constantly changing situations
while maintaining focus on delivery and follow-through alongside the
ability to accomplish complex tasks simultaneously, often under extreme
pressure.
 
 
 
In
addition to excellent planning, organizational and administrative
skills, you will have strong written and verbal communication skills
including fluency in written and spoken English.
