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.

The Festivals and Events Team exists to deliver great experiences and build relationships with supporters, all to fight poverty. The team is one of the leading suppliers of stewarding operations for UK festivals. Each year, we ensure the safety of millions of festival goers as well as giving thousands of volunteers a great experience over the summer season.

We deliver a highly effective festival operation at a range of festivals and events each year as well as taking campaigners and Oxfam shops to engage with the public and showcase some of the lifesaving humanitarian work we do. As a team, we look to engage people to use their time, money and voice for Oxfam through festivals and events. We create and deliver memorable experiences that initiate, build and establish deeper relationships with Oxfam.

What we are looking for

·        Strong organisational skills and a results driven attitude

·        The potential and desire to take engagement to the next level, and be a part of the team that makes it all happen.
