Oxfam International Secretariat is looking for a Media Officer to join into our four-person media team. You’ll be developing international media strategies and content across Oxfam’s influencing and humanitarian agenda. You’ll be linking your media work up with our campaigns and advocacy, humanitarian, program, social media and fund-raising teams. You’ll be working ultimately with Oxfam teams around the world in delivering this content to their markets.
What we are looking for
You will be a sharp written communicator with great news judgement and a flair for the creative – a storyteller. You’ll prize simplicity and accuracy. You’ll have a strategic understanding of media delivery, including in tandem with social media channels. You’ll have a track record of developing close networks and relationships with colleagues around the world and be aware of their different contexts and supportive of their needs. You’ll know how to minimize and manage risk and how to maximize positive impact. You’ll have at least five years of media experience behind you, with knowledge of non-governmental organizations and other languages a bonus.
What we offer
This is an opportunity to expand your current media experience into an international level. At Oxfam, we believe that every aspect of our work can lead to a positive outcome. If you have the same opinion, together with the ability to meet the challenges involved, this role offers scope for immense personal fulfilment – as well as outstanding opportunities to develop your career. Oxfam is committed to providing a fair compensation package and a flexible working environment.
