Location: Negotiable within HECA region (Horn, East and Central Africa)
Hours: Full time role, exact hours dependent on the country of deployment
Job Type: Fixed Term
Job Purpose: Facilitates the development and implementation of the Worldwide Influencing Network within the HECA region and at national level in line with the Worldwide Influencing Network (WIN) transformational goals, the WIN National Influencing Standards and the regional vision for 2020 programmes.
Background: Oxfam is currently undergoing a period of transformational change, which envisions a future where Oxfam is a more interdependent network, driven by knowledge, organized for internal simplicity and globally balanced.
Oxfam strives to have affiliates in southern countries that can raise their own funds, run their own programs, make their own alliances with local people’s movements, and lobby their own governments and businesses.
The Horn, East & Central Africa Region (HECA) is one of the poorest and least developed regions of the world, and one of the largest regions where Oxfam works.
All ten countries in the region are currently affected by natural and/or man-made humanitarian crises, and this is having an impact on Oxfam’s role in the region.
In addition to country specific Oxfam strategies in each of the 10 countries for the period 2015-2019, Oxfam also has a statement of strategic intent for the region, reflecting the key strategic priorities and objectives for the entire region.
They include prevention and response to humanitarian crises; enabling women in HECA to claim their social, economic and political rights; supporting the development of civil society, and the improvement of accountable, democratic governance; and supporting the improved resilience of those with vulnerable livelihoods to climate change, insecurity and other risks.
The HECA region also hosts the Pan-Africa Programme.
