Oxfam is looking for two Programme Coordinators to join the Global Humanitarian Team as a Humanitarian Support Personnel (HSP).
The purpose of the Global Humanitarian Team is to lead the delivery of Oxfam’s humanitarian strategy and to support countries and regions to respond to humanitarian crises worldwide. With a team of over 80 Humanitarian Support Personnel of various technical specialities, the GHT is currently supporting responses such as in the Horn of Africa, Yemen, Syria, South Sudan and the Lake Chad region with programmes on WASH, Emergency Food Security and Vulnerable Livelihoods, and Protection.
As an HSP, you will be deployed into our biggest and most challenging emergency programmes, or into chronic, less visible crises, anywhere in the world for deployments of normally 3 to 6 months. Based in your home country in between deployments, you will be prepared to travel at short notice and to be relocated between emergencies at short notice.
As a Programme Coordinator, you will be typically responsible for leading large-scale humanitarian programmes, often in complex, difficult or insecure environments. You will manage the entire programme portfolio, usually across multiple locations, from design to implementation; and you will have a major role in shaping related advocacy and policy work. You will manage large budgets with multiple sources of funding, often under high levels of uncertainty. You will quickly establish critical relations with key donors, represent Oxfam in country-level coordination bodies, and link the humanitarian response to our longer term programmes.
One of the posts is funded by Oxfam GB, the other one by Oxfam Germany. One of the post holders will also be working on Public Relations, media and lobby work in Germany for 3 weeks per year.
To succeed in this job you will need to have significant experience of managing large-scale emergency programmes and large teams in complex environments. We expect that you have proven influencing, negotiating and networking skills with internal and external audiences, and high-level representation and coordination skills. You will also need strong analytical and strategic planning skills, supported by proven financial management skills, and experience of managing compliance in large-scale programmes. You will need to be fluent in English and German and a good working knowledge of other languages such as French, Spanish and/or Arabic would be highly desirable.
Previous applicants need not apply. Fluency in German is essential for one of the two posts.
