Extractives Strategists Job at Oxfam NGO

Level C2

National – Fixed Term (1 Year)


  • Nairobi, Kenya

    Since the discovery of commercially recoverable oil resources ¡n 2012, Kenya has inched closer to selling its first barrel of oil on the international market with full field development oil production expected to begin in 2021 and an early oil pilot scheme (EOPS) that kicked off ¡n 2018.

    These oil resources hold the promise of significant revenues and an opportunity to strengthen economic growth and broad based social development.

    To ensure that the country gets optimal benefits from its petroleum resource endowment, the government needs to see through a set of reforms….

    If you believe that Kenyans must be adequately informed about projects that affect their lives and livelihood, in a timely manner, free of coercion and manipulation and be given the opportunity to approve or reject a project prior to the commencement of all activities; then there ¡s now an opportunity to be part of a team that envisages a transformed Kenya society in which citizens fully participate ¡n decision making processes on issues that affect their lives and can be heard.

    Here is how you would make a difference:

    As the Extractives Strategist, you would have the opportunity to design and implement the program as well as pilot innovations and innovative program approaches. You would take the lead in resourcing the program, working with and building key strategic partnerships, coalitions and networks and support partners with capacity building to create sustainable change in the Extractive Industries space.

    This role would require you to collaborate with the other thematic areas such as Tax Justice, Women’s Rights and Humanitarian, the campaigns team, policy influencing and Knowledge Hubs in finding integrated ways to challenge poverty, injustice and inequality in Kenya.

    The role would require you to infuse your energy, passion and commitment to the program/project staff that you would manage.
