Oxfam Great Britain

  • Networking and Influencing Project Coordinator
  • 7-10 years
  • Addis Ababa

Shaping a stronger Oxfam for people living in poverty. 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. Oxfam GB is a member of the international confederation Oxfam. Our values and commitment to safeguarding Oxfam is committed to preventing any type of unwanted behaviour at work including sexual harassment, exploitation and abuse, lack of integrity and financial misconduct; and committed to promoting the welfare of children, young people, adults and beneficiaries with whom Oxfam GB engages. Oxfam expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment through our code of conduct. We place a high priority on ensuring that only those who share and demonstrate our values are recruited to work for us. The post holder will undertake the appropriate level of training and is responsible for ensuring that they understand and work within the safeguarding policies of the organisation. All offers of employment will be subject to satisfactory references and appropriate screening checks, which can include criminal records and terrorism finance checks. Oxfam GB also participates in the Inter-Agency Misconduct Disclosure Scheme. In line with this Scheme, we will request information from job applicants’ previous employers about any findings of sexual exploitation, sexual abuse and/or sexual harassment during employment, or incidents under investigation when the applicant left employment. By submitting an application, the job applicant confirms his/her understanding of these recruitment procedures. We are committed to ensuring diversity and gender equality within our organisation and encourage applicants from diverse backgrounds to apply. OUR TEAM The Gender Team will manage the Oxfam Gender Programme as a standalone programme but also, provide technical support to the country team to mainstream gender across other programmes as institutionally. Gender inequality is the most serious and pervasive form of discrimination in the world. While this affects everyone, women and girls form the majority of those living in poverty and face the most discrimination. Gender inequality is a key driver of poverty and a fundamental denial of women's rights and socio-economic empowerment. They have fewer resources, less power and less influence in decision making when compared to men. They are exposed to various forms of violence and exploitation and experience further inequality because of their ethnicity, age, race, class, marital status, sexual orientation and (dis)ability. Oxfam believes that transforming gender and power relations, the structures, norms and values that underpin them, is critical to ending poverty and challenging inequality. We believe that women taking control and taking collective action are themselves, the most important drivers of sustained improvements in women’s rights. It is more important than ever for women to be supported in developing their own visions and strategies for change, and building the organizations and movements required to affirm that achieving women’s rights is a foundation for all development goals. This is part of Oxfam in Ethiopia Country Strategy and its integrated theme of Gender Justice.
