Division Purpose Statement 2021

As Oxfam America’s Global Partnerships and Impact division, we build and sustain partnerships with

Oxfam country and regional offices in Latin America and the rest of the world. We foster connections

with U.S. institutions and supporters, share expertise and resources, support development and

humanitarian programming, amplify partner voices, and influence change for impact to drive Oxfam’s

mission to fight inequality to end poverty and injustice.

The Vice President Global Partnerships & Impact (VP GPI) will be a highly effective, experienced, and proven leader and manager who is motivated by Oxfam’s vision of a just and sustainable world and the mission to fight inequality to end poverty and injustice. 

The VP GPI will play a critical role in advancing Oxfam’s commitment in our 2030 strategy to transform systems that drive inequality and transition into an organization whose collaboration and effectiveness with partners in the Global South will set new standards of excellence. They will bring the vision, experience, curiosity, creativity, resourcefulness, and enthusiasm to support a recognized international NGO leap to a new level of impact and influence. They will be excited to deliver an ambitious strategy and opportunity, recognizing the significant role of the US (government, corporations, foundations) in multilateralism, global development, humanitarian action, and human rights. 

Reporting to the President & CEO and as an integral member of the Senior Leadership Team, the VP GPI will embrace challenges and change to support the evolution of a high-impact organization and confederation working in a rapidly changing world. 

Overview:

The Vice President Global Partnerships & Impact (VP GPI) will be responsible for providing overall strategic and operational leadership of Oxfam America’s (OUS) GPI division, overseeing an ambitious change agenda, and for Oxfam International the VP GPI will identify, nurture, and maintain a wide range of strategic partnerships within and outside the Oxfam Confederation on all matters related to programmatic impact and global partnerships. The VP GPI will exemplify feminist principles and bring their demonstrated experience, empathetic and highly collaborative approach to leadership, and proven people management skills to the role. They will be a values-driven leader who will model and cultivate those same skills and competencies across teams, while creating coherence in the division’s overall strategy. They will drive Oxfam’s work on knowledge for impact, as well as commitments to safe programming and partnership priorities across the organization.

Although the 2030 strategy involves transformative internal change throughout all divisions of OUS, the Global Programs change agenda, already underway, is significant. Fewer people supporting larger investments across priority countries and a growing number of independent affiliates and partners in the Global South will also require a radical change in ways that OUS collaborates internally, measures and shares stories of impact and influence, prioritizes and applies research for organizational learning, program, and innovation, and partners externally for greater impact.
