Oxfam GB Opportunities in Kenya

1. Oxfam OI Regional Water, Sanitation & Hygiene (WASH) Advisor Jobs in Kenya


Oxfam currently works in 10 countries in the Horn, East and Central Africa (HECA) Region: Sudan and South Sudan, Ethiopia, Somalia, Kenya, Tanzania, Uganda, DRC, Burundi, and Rwanda. Humanitarian programmes make up over 50% of spend in the region.

The humanitarian context of HECA is dominated by multiple causes of suffering, conflict, climate change induced flooding and drought, and food insecurity. There are more than 10 million IDPs and refugees in the region, and millions of people are living in food insecure state.

Conflict-related complex emergencies in the region are characterised by large-scale internal displacement and refugee movements and the widespread destruction of social and economic infrastructure, with women and children disproportionately affected.

Traditional approaches to humanitarian assistance are challenged by the existence of protracted or entrenched emergencies, where populations remain displaced and dependent on humanitarian aid for many years. Many of the conflicts in the region are characterized by extensive human rights abuses, and high levels of population movements combined with the presence of government soldiers, peacekeeping forces, and non-state armed groups put program beneficiaries at high risk of HIV/AIDS and gender-based violence.

Job Purpose

To consolidate Oxfam’s position as a leading public health agency by promoting innovation and learning across the region, building the technical capacity of country teams and partners to design and implement quality public health programmes, and ensuring that HECA country programmes and the region are prepared to meet public health needs in new category 2 and 3 disasters in a timely and effective way.

Contract Length - Fixed term contract for 2 years

Facilitates the development and implementation of the Worldwide Influencing Network within the HECA region and at national level in line with the Worldwide Influencing Network (WIN) transformational goals, the WIN National Influencing Standards and the regional vision for 2020 programmes.

Background

Oxfam is currently undergoing a period of transformational change, which envisions a future where Oxfam is a more interdependent network, driven by knowledge, organized for internal simplicity and globally balanced.

Oxfam strives to have affiliates in southern countries that can raise their own funds, run their own programs, make their own alliances with local people’s movements, and lobby their own governments and businesses.

The Horn, East & Central Africa Region (HECA) is one of the largest regions where Oxfam works. All ten countries in the region are currently affected by natural and/or man-made humanitarian crises, and this is having an impact on Oxfam’s role in the region.

In addition to country specific Oxfam strategies in each of the 10 countries for the period 2015-2019, Oxfam also has a statement of strategic intent for the region, reflecting the key strategic priorities and objectives for the entire region.

They include prevention and response to humanitarian crises; enabling women in HECA to claim their social, economic and political rights; supporting the development of civil society, and the improvement of accountable, democratic governance; and supporting the improved resilience of those with vulnerable livelihoods to climate change, insecurity and other risks. The HECA region also hosts the Pan-Africa Programme.
