Humanitarian Funding Adviser (INT3613)

Oxfam has adopted an ambitious new resource mobilisation strategy that seeks to build more strategic partnerships with bilateral and multilateral donor agencies to increase our income, influence and programme impact. Humanitarian emergencies account for a large proportion of Oxfam’s programmatic income and work.


Through mutually beneficial relationships, we seek to create new opportunities for Oxfam to collaborate more effectively with donor partners in tackling poverty and inequality through a variety of different channels – including technical cooperation, learning exchanges, policy dialogue, or generating more resources – in order to improve development outcomes for people living in poverty.


What we are looking for


You will work in a high performing team to develop and lead on Oxfam’s strategic relationships with the UK Department for International Development, and the Disasters Emergency Committee. You will have a strong background in mobilising and managing funds for humanitarian emergencies, be knowledgeable about all of the major institutional humanitarian donors, and be able to lead an organisation-wide strategy. At the same time, you will be able to advise others on accessing and managing funds from institutional humanitarian donors.


You will be both a ‘doer’ and strategic thinker – someone who relishes variety in a role and who has the skills to operate in a variety of complex and dynamic contexts: creating momentum for internal projects, coordinating the funding for delivery of an emergency response, developing and implementing longer-term donor strategies, and providing donor-related capacity building support to colleagues in country and regional offices. You should be a creative problem solver, a diplomat, a capacity builder, and a knowledge repository of donor information.

This is an opportunity for an exceptional, dedicated, and highly motivated professional, with a strong commitment to Oxfam's values and beliefs. If you believe you are the candidate we are looking for, please download the full job description and apply online by clicking the below button.
