United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland: Head of Humanitarian Campaigns and Advocacy (CAP0262)

Organization: Oxfam GB
Country: United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland
Closing date: 28 Feb 2017

Are you a passionate campaigner with a profound understanding of how change happens?

Do you have leadership experience with an ability to inspire and manage a team?

Do you have knowledge and understanding of humanitarian and security issues?

And perhaps most important of all, do you want to work with an organisation making a significant difference to people who are caught up in humanitarian crises around the world?

If so, we would like to hear from you. This is an amazing opportunity to make a huge impact on the campaigns and advocacy work we do to empower people to fight against poverty. In recent months, as part of our work responding to the humanitarian crisis in Yemen, Oxfam has challenged the UK government’s sale of arms to Saudi Arabia, and has called on governments to work together to help and protect the millions of people forced to flee conflict, disaster and poverty around the world in our ‘Stand As One’ campaign. You will lead the further development and delivery of the next phase of Oxfam’s campaigns and advocacy work on these and other humanitarian issues.

You will be an experienced leader with proven ability to inspire and manage a team. You will have a vision for Oxfam’s humanitarian campaigning and advocacy work and the capacity for creative thinking to make it happen. You will also have the ability to take difficult strategic choices, including managing opportunity and risk, and be comfortable delegating to your experienced and expert team as appropriate.

You will have a knowledge and understanding of humanitarian and security issues and be able to demonstrate that you are politically astute in terms of the UK and global environments. You will know how institutions work, how decisions are made, who makes them and how they can be influenced.
