Job Description

For more than 70 years, Oxfam has been working to help create lasting solutions to the injustice of poverty. We’ve provided humanitarian aid in the wake of devastating disasters, invested worldwide in development programmes and campaigned and lobbied governments and organisations for change.

A simple, inescapable truth underlines everything we do at Oxfam. There’s enough wealth in this world to go around. It’s not unfortunate that people live in poverty. It’s unjustifiable. It’s not just their problem. It’s ours, too. And with the right support, we can beat poverty and injustice. More than 4,500 people already commit their time and talents to Oxfam. Now we’re looking for yours.

Are you a motivated and sharp minded individual with experience managing a high-profile brand? We are looking for a talented and ambitious individual to join our Communications team.

You will help lead the development of a brand strategy that supports our public engagement objectives, all the while ensuring innovative brand practice is brought into our strategic thinking and planning.

You will work collaboratively with teams across the organisation, particularly with our public engagement teams covering campaigning, fundraising and trading work.

With experience in brand building in commercial, PR or non-profit settings, you will have previously developed and implemented brand strategies.

You will have budget management experience, and will be an excellent communicator; the kind of person your colleagues look forward to working with. You’ll have experience interpreting and acting on market research, while always keeping an eye on industry trends, best practice and the next new creative idea.
