Job Description

Roving Funding Manage

Closing date: 21st October 2022 @ 23:59 GMT/BST/EAT

Interviews: 2-4th November 2022

Location: Flexible (subject to being able to establish a contract of employment in a country where Oxfam has an office)

Contract: Open-ended

One Oxfam Grade: B2

Salary and benefits: Oxfam International is unable to guarantee the obtaining of a work permit for the role. Candidates must have and be able to retain the legal right to work in the indicated location. We are not able to support the relocation of a candidate to take up the position in an Oxfam location

Flexible working: We believe flexible working is key to building the Secretariat of the future, so we’re open to talking through the type of flexible arrangements which might work for you. The post-holder can be based in any location with an Affiliate or Oxfam office who is willing to host them, and – when not deployed - can be home-based or work from an office (or a hybrid of both) according to context. The hours can be worked flexibly.

The Role

Oxfam International Secretariat is looking for a Roving Funding Manager to provide timely and agile support to Country/Cluster/Regional Teams in business development in order to boost their funding pipeline. The post-holder will be deployed to support Countries/Clusters/Regions with fundraising for periods of up to 3 months, according to agreed criteria. This will be either to provide short-term cover for a vacant funding role or to provide additional capacity when business development needs are high, e.g. if a lot of funding opportunities are coming at the same time or for humanitarian response. Deployments may be physical or virtual, according to the needs on the ground.

An experienced fundraiser who can work with teams and donors in different contexts, with lots of initiative and self-awareness. We are looking for someone with experience in engaging with bilateral and multilateral donors, and working with program teams to develop strategies, proactively engage with donors and develop proposals. You must be adaptable and resilient, and able to work in complex and multi-cultural environments. We are also looking for someone who can work with teams and partners on their self-identified capacity needs and in identifying longer-term resourcing of the funding function. You would be part of a dynamic and welcoming multi-locational OI Institutional Funding Team.

What we offer

This role will give you an opportunity to make a difference in the work that Oxfam and its partners do on the ground by providing timely support in business development. At Oxfam, we believe that every aspect of our work can lead to a positive outcome.
