Economic Justice Programme Manager


A unique opportunity to fight inequality to end poverty and injustice. 


Oxfam is a global movement of people working together to end the injustice of poverty.

That means we tackle the inequality that keeps people poor. Together we save, protect and rebuild lives. When disaster strikes, we help people build better lives for themselves, and for others. We take on issues like land rights, climate change and discrimination against women. And we won’t stop until every person on the planet can enjoy life free from poverty. 

We are an international confederation of 19 organizations (affiliates) working together with partners and local communities in the areas of humanitarian, development and campaigning, in more than 90 countries.

All our work is led by three core values: Empowerment, Accountability, Inclusiveness. To read more about our values please click here

About the MENA region

The MENA (Middle East and North Africa) region implements and manages programmes in Yemen, Occupied Palestinian Territories, Lebanon, Syria, Iraq, and Jordan.

Programmes within the MENA region reflect Oxfam’s approach to work across the globe. We support self-reliance, not dependency, and to complement our work on the ground we strive to secure lasting change through our campaigning. 

We also put women at the heart of all we do. The majority of people living in poverty are women and girls, and so this focus helps us to achieve our mission to overcome poverty and suffering.

This is a lead position with an understanding of market linkages, value chain analysis, gender equality, programme quality and sustainable and resilient approaches to livelihoods development in Jordan including under the Jordan Compact. The postholder will respond to and design appropriate interventions with regards to strategic and policy issues related to livelihood sector in Jordan including those affecting refugees and when needed migrant workers amongst other responsibilities in the job profile.


The person

To succeed in this role you will need extensive experience and successful track record in managing complex economic development and livelihoods programmes (both humanitarian and development) that involve community based livelihoods approaches, social protection, value chains and enterprise development in middle income countries with focus on the middle-east in general and Jordan specifically, coupled with a post graduate degree in International Development or Economics or Sustainable Livelihoods or closely related fields.  You will have a strong commitment to women’s rights and gender justice as well as feminist thinking on economic justice and livelihoods.  Good written and spoken English with excellent report and proposal writing skills, experience and knowledge of local language will be an asset.
