Whilst Nigeria is the second largest economy in Africa, with the largest agricultural output, food insecurity is a growing threat. And, despite being a signatory to the African Union protocol on women, Nigeria is still struggling with gender imbalance at governance and leadership level. Oxfam GB's work in the country focuses on sustainable livelihoods and gender equality, as well as supporting the Nigerian agricultural transformation agenda.

The roleYou will lead our work in Nigeria, working with the Regional Management Centre, affiliates and other organisations to drive the delivery of the Joint Country Analysis and Strategy and provide leadership to the teams on the ground. It's crucial that we maintain a consistent and integrated approach in our efforts across Nigeria. Something you'll keep in mind as you inspire and motivate your team in the delivery of agreed priorities and plans, seeing to it that we're utilising our resources and identifying opportunities to build on our capacity. But your success will hinge as much on the partnerships you develop as the operational work involved. So building relationships with key political figures, managing vital donor contracts and partnering with private sector and other NGOs, and civil society platforms, you'll create strong links and establish Oxfam as an influential agency - helping to make a real difference to a country in need of our support. You will demonstrate a strong track record in integrating gender at all levels of analysis and programme delivery.

What we're looking forTo deliver in a role of such importance calls for extensive experience of driving programme development and change management, both in a humanitarian and development context. So you'll know all about building donor and partner relationships, fundraising and advocacy, as well as leading and motivating teams. And from a practical standpoint, you'll be confident developing and managing complex budgets. More than that, economic justice, social justice and advocacy skills are essential, as is the ability to think politically, analytically and strategically in challenging situations. But just as importantly, you'll have the credibility, the drive and the passion to positively represent Oxfam at all levels.

About Oxfam

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. Thousands of people already commit their time and talents to our campaigning, humanitarian and long-term development projects. Now we're looking for yours.

The rewards


"Very Competitive Package": In addition to the competitive salary which will be paid net, with Oxfam meeting the tax liabilities, you will receive a range of attractive benefits including pension, medical, other type of insurance and those associated with internationally relocated staff.
