Women’s Economic Empowerment and care (We-Care)

Oxfam’s Women’s Economic Empowerment and Care (WE-Care) team is seeking an exceptional Programme Manager and a Programme Adviser who are motivated to improve women’s rights and challenge power structures that enable social injustice and inequality.

WE-Care is a large, ground-breaking multi-country programme operational in Africa and Asia, with high-profile donors and external communications.

These are exciting and unique opportunities to shape and deliver a substantial programme of Oxfam’s Women’s Economic Empowerment strategy. The post-holders will join a global team responsible for advancing thinking, influencing policy and practice, and managing multi-country programmes promoting innovative approaches to ‘new issues’ in development.
