The postholder, or a combination of part-time post-holders covering each nation, will primarily generate proactive and reactive coverage in support of Oxfam’s twin Global Challenges, climate justice and action to better value and reward roles disproportionately undertaken by women, as well as Oxfam’s work in fragile and humanitarian contexts.
The postholder will also deliver media work in support of Oxfam’s brand and fundraising objectives. This will require closely aligning media and communications output with Oxfam’s influencing priorities, while maintaining strategic relationships with national and regional media. The postholder will liaise closely with colleagues in Scotland and Wales, as well as across the UK and globally.
You’ll work with people with lived experience of poverty to raise their voices in a safe, sensitive and effective way, while undertaking effective partnership working and delivering impactful supporter communications, particularly via social media.

You will have a substantial chance to help shape Oxfam’s public profile while working alongside passionate and skilled colleagues across the UK and globally on issues that really matter to people’s lives.
We believe flexible working is key to building the Oxfam of the future, so we’re open to talking through the type of flexible arrangements which might work for you.
