Description

        

Oxfam’s Global Humanitarian Team are looking for emergency response managers to join our elite team. Do you have a “can do” attitude and the drive and self-confidence to shape our humanitarian programmes? Do you enjoy problem solving and multi-tasking in the most challenging environments? Do you have a genuine interest and commitment to making a long-term difference to those affected by crises and disasters?

If you are a talented manager, have proven humanitarian experience in a number of different emergency contexts, excellent communication skills and are able to motivate and lead a team, then we want to work with you!

 

As a Programme Manager, you will be typically responsible for managing a specific programme area, typically teams of up to 50 people including technical experts (such as Water, Hygiene and Sanitation (WASH), food security and a range of support services) and manage budgets up to 5 million Euros. You will work with limited supervision and autonomously set programme level objectives. You might also be deployed at capital level to coordinate a country-wide emergency response.


You will be part of a team of approximately 80 HSP members comprising various different technical functions and you will be deployed by Oxfam’s Global Humanitarian Team. You may be deployed into our biggest and most challenging emergency responses, or into chronic, less visible crises in any country in the world. You will be deployed from your home country. You must be prepared to travel at short notice to emergency response countries (deployments are normally 3-6 months, but can be longer). Knowledge of French, Arabic or Spanish are highly desirable.

Salary and Benefits: £27,963 - £37,095 net per annum, pro rata. (Net = take home pay. Oxfam will meet the tax and social security liabilities of post-holder in addition to net salary)
