Oxfam is a leading International NGO with a worldwide reputation for excellence and over 70 years of experience. It’s not unfortunate that people live in poverty. With enough wealth in this world to go around it’s unjustifiable. It’s not just their problem. It’s ours too. Our humanitarian, development and campaigning projects change lives around the world, and with the right support, we can beat poverty and injustice. Thousands of people already commit their time and talents to our campaigning, humanitarian and long-term development projects. Now we’re looking for yours.

The We-Care Programme

WE-CARE, Women’s Empowerment and Care, is an Oxfam initiative to promote reducing and re-distributing the responsibility for unpaid care and domestic work so that women and girls have more choices to participate in social, economic or political activities. Likewise, WE-Care advocates for states and employers to invest in services and infrastructure that facilitate unpaid care and domestic work in poor communities.

The WE-CARE programme operates with a multi-million budget, combining programmatic work in countries in Africa and Asia with influencing strategies at national and international level. It is a high- profile programme within Oxfam and externally. This post provides an exciting opportunity for an experienced Project Manager who can maximise the value and realise the ambition of this demanding and innovative programme.
