Programme Manager - Oxfam

Programme Manager - Oxfam 

Location: Glasgow

Salary: Up to £33,000 gross p.a. base salary


About the Organisation 

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.

About the Team 

To achieve Oxfam’s vision of a just world without poverty, we campaign to challenge the root causes that keep people in poverty and to achieve a fair and sustainable world. We campaign to change the social norms, economic systems, institutions and policies that keep women and men in poverty, to alleviate the impact of poverty and to reduce the vulnerability of people living in poverty in the absence of wider change to increase their resilience.

We do this by being propositional around alternatives to these norms, systems and institutions, working with others, producing and sharing evidence and knowledge, supporting active citizenship in ensuring people´s voices are heard, and holding the powerful to account. Oxfam uses different evidence-based campaigning and influencing approaches in the UK and across the countries where we operate as One Oxfam.
