About Oxfam

Oxfam is a global movement of people who won’t live with the injustice of poverty. Together we save and rebuild lives in disasters. We help people build better lives for themselves. We speak out on the big issues that keep people poor, like inequality, discrimination against women and climate change. And we won’t stop until every person on the planet can live without poverty.

Our Team

Oxfam GB’s Programme Funding & Partnerships (PFP) team has a strong global track record of successfully supporting the development of high quality programme funding proposals, generating and supporting restricted donor programme income of more than £200m/year from leading institutional Donors (bilateral and multilateral), trust and foundations. We have specialist experience and capability in single country and multi-country programme funding, of traditional and emerging aid modalities and mechanisms, of commercial tendering and of complex consortia formation and partnerships development.

The Donor Compliance Support Team sits with PFP and takes overall responsibility for ensuring that Oxfam GB has the appropriate programme funding systems, processes, advisory support and training in place to support the effective delivery, management and compliance of donor contracts. This is a critical role in the department because of the importance and centrality of donor contract management in maintaining Oxfam GB’s cash flow, managing risk arising from non-compliance, and maintaining good external donor relationships. The team collaborates closely with other functions across the department, and organisation, in order to support effective resource mobilisation and donor contract management. The team works across the global programme funding functions to ensure improved standardisation and quality in donor contract management and compliance.

Oxfam GB seeks to recruit a Funding Process Support Officer (FPSO) to provide effective support for restricted funds within the organisation, in particular facilitating internal funding authorisation processes as well as other funding administrative processes and requirements as may be required.
