What it means to work for Oxfam
Working at Oxfam is so much more than just a job. As an Oxfam employee, you will join a team of professionals that is part of an international confederation of 19 organizations networked together in more than 87 countries, along with Oxfam International Secretariat.
You will be part of a global movement of millions of people who won’t live with the injustice of poverty. An exciting community where committed, dedicated, inspiring and driven individuals come together from all corners of the world, each person bringing something special to create a friendly and diverse atmosphere.
" The most satisfying part of my job is hearing from refugees what a difference Oxfam’s support has made to them. We run regular listening groups where the community can give us constructive feedback. Recently a grandfather told me: "We are happy that you come and you listen to us. Thank you for the work you do." That made me feel very happy. That is my reward."

Our values at work
We are committed to providing a diverse, inclusive, equal and safe work environment for all of our employees and the communities we work with.
Our culture is shaped by our values, which reinforce what we care about and how we do things, not just what we do. Our main core values: Empowerment, Inclusiveness and Accountability, drive everything we do.
As we strive to achieve Oxfam’s goals to end poverty, we try and lead by example in demonstrating the same values that we wish to see in the people we work with and those we aim to influence.
Our safeguarding commitment
Oxfam is committed to preventing any type of unwanted behavior at work including sexual harassment, exploitation and abuse, lack of integrity and financial misconduct; and committed to promoting the welfare of children, young people and adults. Oxfam expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment through our code of conduct. We place a high priority on ensuring that only those who share and prove our values are recruited to work for us.
