Oxfam is a global movement of people working together to end the injustice of poverty.

That means we tackle the inequality that keeps people poor. Together we save, protect and rebuild lives. When disaster strikes, we help people build better lives for themselves, and for others. We take on issues like land rights, climate change and discrimination against women. And we won’t stop until every person on the planet can enjoy life free from poverty.

We are an international confederation of 19 organizations (affiliates) working together with partners and local communities in the areas of humanitarian, development and campaigning, in more than 90 countries.

In HECA we recognise the need for a more comprehensive approach to all our work in WASH which would support Oxfam’s position as a leading WASH/public health agency in this region. To achieve this, we will promote WASH governance, systems strengthening, innovation, including use of new technologies and market-based approaches and learning across the Region.

*The Role

As part of the Regional team, you will provide technical capacity for the design and implement quality WASH and public health programmes both during emergency and development WASH interventions. This will involve supporting country technical and senior management in the development of governance and resilience strategies for WASH and working with the GHT to provide emergency response support.

This position reports to the Regional Humanitarian Coordinator.

· Master’s degree in water and sanitation, engineering, public health or equivalent technical experience and training

· At least five years of practical experience of water and sanitation programming in multiple developing countries, including significant experience in complex emergency contexts

· Experience in delivering training and developing staff and partner capacity. Ability to take on a coaching and mentoring role

· Demonstrated experience of integrating gender issues into public health activities

· Experience in applying market-based methodologies to WASH/public health interventions

· Diplomacy, tact and negotiating skills: demonstrated ability to use a range of styles and work with a diverse range of people

· Ability to work well under pressure and in response to rapidly changing needs

· Fluent written and spoken English is essential

· Willingness to travel up to 30% of the time**

Oxfam is a global movement of millions of people who share the belief that, in a world rich in resources, poverty isn't inevitable. In just 15 years, extreme poverty has been halved. 15 more years and we can end it for good.

To spread that change and make it last, political solutions are also needed to tackle the root causes of poverty and create societies where empowered individuals can thrive. We will always act, we will speak out, and we won't live with poverty.

Where we work

Together with our local partners, we work in more than 90 countries as part of the Oxfam International confederation, to tackle the root causes of poverty and respond to emergencies.

Oxfam is a movement of millions of people, all working towards one goal - an end to poverty for everyone.

We can take on the big issues that keep people poor - like inequality, hunger and climate change - if we each play our part, however small it may feel.
