This position lies in Oxfam (Novib)’s food and justice campaign GROW. The GROW campaign contributes to a diverse and active movement for food justice. It focuses on small scale-food producers and their communities benefiting more from local, national and global public and private sector policies in the areas of land rights, climate change, investment, income and human rights to ensure that their food security, prosperity and resilience are promoted. In this role, you will contribute to the advocacy work in the field of agricultural investments (including climate finance for agriculture) and land rights, and will participate in the management of an externally funded project – to support these influencing strategies – housed within the team.
The person they are looking for has a track record in advocacy, preferably in national and international settings. The policy lead analyses Dutch ODA policy on agriculture and climate finance and contributes to Oxfam proposals to improve policies. The policy lead develops research and policy positions on agriculture, climate finance, land rights and related thematic priorities. The policy lead works closely with the campaigners in the GROW team to deliver (digital) campaign strategies, and works closely with program development staff to prepare funding proposals to institutional donors, lead on research and advocacy outputs, write blogs and op-eds for broader audiences. You work well in a multi-disciplinary team around the world, you are comfortable in planning and organizing your own work, and you can find a balance between different angles and stakeholders. Please note that your application must be received by the 5th of October at the latest.
