Job Description

This is an amazing opportunity to make waves in Oxfam, as the person leading our policy advocacy on food and agriculture. You will be working with colleagues in more than 30 countries, both north and south, as part of Oxfam’s GROW campaign.

This year, our team will be working alongside some of the poorest farmers on the planet, standing up for those most impacted by drought and floods, and taking on powerful interests to ensure that everyone on the planet can grow and buy enough to eat.

You will play a central role in developing strategy, research and policy advocacy to help Oxfam to influence decision makers on food and agriculture.

You will play an important role in supporting developing countries to create change at the national level, as well as working with colleagues to influence international institutions and developed country governments.

Working closely with our research, national influencing, programme and media teams, as well as Oxfam colleagues across the world, this post is an exciting opportunity to make an impact on decisions that can affect the fate of millions of people globally.

You will be a strong leader with a clear understanding and knowledge of the development issues that are central to food justice – such as agriculture investment and climate change.

Importantly, you will have strong political, policy and power analysis skills, and able to work on multiple issues of relevance to the Oxfam GROW campaign.

You will have clear and strategic thinking, excellent policy analysis across a range of issues, and an aptitude for thinking and acting politically to achieve impact.

You will also have the ability to understand new and complex issues quickly, a flair for communicating to diverse audiences, alongside a strong commitment to fight for a fairer, more equal world.

This role is based in Oxford, with flexibility to work from the London up to three days a week.
