    7. Oxfam Regional Business Development Manager Jobs in Kenya

    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.

    Team Purpose / Background
    Institutional income is increasingly important to Oxfam, of the confederation’s €947m global revenue in 2013-14 approximately 42% of this (€398m) came from institutional sources.

    Such institutional sources (including multilateral and bilateral agencies and donors) typically have decentralised operations, budgets and decision making structures throughout the world.

    To engage effectively with these organisations Oxfam has an established global architecture that mirrors its key institutional relationships, builds stronger partnerships and delivers greater impact and influence at country, regional and global levels.

    This operational architecture also enables Oxfam to more readily purse multi-country / regional opportunities that are increasingly offered by institutional donors to address transnational issues such as migration, climate change, natural disasters and conflicts.

    Humanitarian crises which often cross national borders also require standing capacity at regional levels to most effectively mobilise resources.

    Contract Length: Fixed term contract for 2 years.

    Location: Preferred location Nairobi, Kenya or Country in Horn, East and Central Africa region
