We believe flexible working is key to building the Secretariat of the future, so we are open to talking through the type of flexible arrangements which might work for you. This would also be dependent on the country in which you would be based in.


We are committed to ensuring diversity, equity, inclusion, and representation within our organization.

It works to ensure that gender justice and a feminist lens are central to driving Oxfam’s vision, values and identity, both internally and externally. The Department positions the confederation as an inter-dependent and locally rooted network that is grounded in a feminist approach; and contributes thematic expertise, global outlook and feminist thought leadership with a focus on creating synergies between global and organizational strategy, governance, and confederation development.

TEAM PURPOSE: The SFF Gender Justice team drives Oxfam’s commitment to applying a feminist and intersectional lens to all analysis (research and knowledge), action (programs, influencing, communication, operations) and interaction (communication, relationships and decision making) in the delivery of the Oxfam Global Strategic Framework (2020-2030) and of agreed confederation-wide and OI Secretariat (internal and external) priorities. To build synergies in feminist approaches across all aspects of Oxfam’s work, the Team closely collaborates with other Gender Justice colleagues at the OI Secretariat and seeks to leverage gender justice capacity and expertise across the global Oxfam confederation.


To scale for impact and expertise on gender justice, women’s rights, intersectional approaches – supporting anti-racism, decolonial models and LGBTQIA+ inclusion – in Oxfam as a diversified network, as per the commitments in the Oxfam Global Strategic Framework and the confederation’s Feminist Principles.
