Country Director - Yemen

Full time Staff

Characterised by fragility, a challenging political transition process, and a protracted humanitarian crisis affecting over half the population, our Yemen response remains one of our biggest humanitarian responses across our confederation.

Oxfam is looking for an outstanding, committed senior leader with significant experience working in the humanitarian and development sector, to take on the challenge of leading the Yemen country team as the crisis in the country continues.

The Country Director for Yemen will provide vision and strategic direction for all of Oxfam’s work in the country, including our humanitarian response, long term development programme design and implementation and leadership for our advocacy and influencing work. 

The successful candidate will have experience of leading country teams in high conflict and fragile states, high security risk management, strong management skills and the ability  to manage challenging advocacy priorities in a complex and ever changing political landscape.

Oxfam will support this position with a flexible reward package, that allows support and benefits for family and partners based outside of Yemen, even though the post itself will be unaccompanied in Yemen.
