This is an exciting chance to join and help develop an emerging team, supporting new opportunities and ways of working as part of the new One Oxfam confederation wide model.

Do you have significant country and regional programme and contract management experience? Can you balance the empowerment of and support to countries, regions and other programme units for high quality programme implementation, with an accountability-focussed risk management and compliance approach to programme oversight?

Are you a highly motivated self-starter, and experienced manager, with excellent professional and managerial judgement, and highly development networking and relationship building skills?

Last but not least, do you want to work with an organisation that makes a significant difference to people who are affected by poverty around the world?

Is this you? If so, we would like to hear from you. This is a fantastic opportunity to build and coordinate a team focussed on quality programme implementation and accountability, in collaboration with Oxfam countries, regions and Partner Affiliates.
