Thinking of a Career in Emergency Management?
- BY Nicole Pelette
We are looking for an energetic and motivated individual to develop and lead on Oxfam’s strategic humanitarian relationships with the UK Department for International Development, and the Disasters Emergency Committee.
You will have a strong background in mobilising and managing funds for humanitarian emergencies, be knowledgeable about all of the major institutional humanitarian donors, be able to lead an organisation-wide strategy, but at the same time be able to advise others on accessing and managing funds from institutional humanitarian donors.
We expect Humanitarian Funding Advisors to be both ‘doers’ and strategic thinkers – people who are able to operate in a variety of contexts: creating momentum for internal projects, hitting the ground running to deliver an emergency response, developing longer term donor strategies, and providing donor-related capacity building support to colleagues in country and regional offices and partner organisations. HFAs must be creative problem solvers, diplomats and representatives, capacity builders, and knowledge repositories of donor information.
You will be able to work in a variety of contexts, and be able to go on deployment to humanitarian emergencies for up to six weeks at a time.
