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 20 organizations (affiliates) working together with partners and local communities in the areas of humanitarian, development and campaigning, in more than 90 countries.
All our work is led by three core values: Empowerment, Accountability, Inclusiveness. To read more about our values please click here
Oxfam is committed to preventing any type of unwanted behavior at work including sexual harassment, exploitation and abuse, lack of integrity and financial misconduct; and promoting the welfare of children, young people and adults. Oxfam expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment through our code of conduct. We place a high priority on ensuring that only those who share and demonstrate our values are recruited to work for us.
Oxfam has been working in the Occupied Palestinian Territories and Israel since the 1950s, in the most vulnerable communities in Gaza, East Jerusalem, and Area C, the 61 percent of the West Bank where the government of Israel maintains full military and civil control.
In the West Bank, Oxfam advocates for the rights of communities to stay on their land, and we promote the rights of women and marginalized groups to participate in the decision-making that affects their lives.
From November 2015 to January 2018, Oxfam worked with Bedouin communities in the E1 territories, in East Jerusalem, who have faced an enduring and structural emergency that gradually deteriorates their livelihoods. The project aimed at managing the humanitarian emergency in these communities and building their resilience, through livestock raising support and community-based protection mechanisms.
Oxfam in the Occupied Palestinian Territories and Israel and Oxfam Great Britain are recruiting a consultant to manage the field work in the West Bank/East Jerusalem for this Project Effectiveness Reviews. The Effectiveness Review will focus on measuring impact on resilience, following Oxfam’s Framework for Resilient Development (2016), using a counterfactual approach. Data will be collected via questionnaires (household and individual modules, of approximately 30 min each), both with project participants and with comparable non-participants. Oxfam’s Impact Evaluation Adviser will be responsible for the overall methodology, but will work in close collaboration with the consultant (as well as the Oxfam team and partner organisations) to finalise the evaluation design (identification of the comparison group, sampling protocol definition, survey tool tailoring, feedback mechanism).
The role of the consultant is to (1) assist with finalising the evaluation design, (2) recruit, train, supervise and mentor a team of enumerators to conduct the questionnaires and complete any data entry that is required and (3) ensure that the data collected meets Oxfam’s high quality standards and legal requirements (e.g., GDPR). This consultancy does not include data analysis or final report writing.
It is Oxfam’s strong preference that the questionnaires be administered electronically, using Oxfam’s SurveyCTO server and the consultant’s mobile devices or tablets.
