Head of External Affairs

Oxford or London, UK
Full time Staff

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. Join us.

What we are looking for:

We are looking for someone with strong experience in making change happen through campaigning or advocacy but who is ready to be challenged to be more innovative, visionary and creative in their approach. Essential to your success will be strong analytical skills and the ability to think strategically about how Oxfam can seek to influence decision makers directly, but also how we can influence the “terms of the debate” at global fora or in the media.

You will have the leadership and interpersonal skills needed to play a key role within both Oxfam GB and across Oxfam International and the relationship building skills needed to enhance Oxfam’s key external alliances with influential individuals. You will have the experience be able to deliver high quality advice and support for our most senior staff.
