Kenya: Public Engagement Manager

NGO/UN Job Vacancy



Organization: Oxfam
Country: Kenya
Closing date: 11 Jun 2017

Post Title : Public Engagement Manager

Line Manager: Oxfam International Head of Brand and Digital

Matrix Manager: Deputy Advocacy & Campaigns Director: Worldwide Campaigns

Responsible for: Public Engagement Specialist for Worldwide Displacement and Migration Campaign

Location: Nairobi (preferred) or an Oxfam affiliate HQ office in the global South - Mexico, Delhi, Johannesburg and Sao Paolo (subject to being able to establish a contract of employment and providing the right to work can be obtained for the location of the post).

Contract: Open ended (subject to being able to establish an open-ended contract)

Annual Salary: KES 6,027,347 gross per annum (negotiable dependent on experience) - Kenya Location only

Relocation: Relocation assistance available in line with policy

Background

Oxfam is a global movement of people working together to end the injustice of poverty. Critical to achieving our goal is inspiring, igniting, empowering and engaging people to be part of that. People living in poverty themselves, supporters, active citizens, donors, activists, volunteers and the wider public have a critical role in ending poverty. People engage with us in many and varied ways and we can’t achieve our goals without their generosity and power. Public engagement creates and offers opportunities to be a part of and support the worldwide movement toward a more equal world.

Geopolitical and economic powers are shifting. Fast. Poverty is shifting too, and so is our capacity to fight it. Today, most poor people live in middle-income countries. However the gap between the rich at the top and the billion at the bottom is growing. Inequality is about access to political power, jobs, justice, security, food, land and resources, health and education. Aid, too, is no longer about North-to-South giving.

At Oxfam we cherish our 70 years of history. We bring a lot of knowledge and experience to the table – and we’ll continue to. However, we are changing. We have decided to concentrate on one over-riding priority: to strengthen our ability to influence the political and corporate dynamics that keep people poor. By influencing the systems of power and decision-making, Oxfam can help more poor people than we could simply by providing them with more services.

This realization changes how we organize our organization. We are going to have more Oxfam affiliates in southern countries. We will transform into a genuinely international organization that is accountable to poor communities because we’re closer to them in all our programs, humanitarian work and campaigns. Critical also to achieving our goal is to inspire and empower people to take part; people living in poverty themselves, supporters and the wider public have a critical role in ending poverty. And finally, it also means that Oxfam International itself must be truly global, based in multiple locations, with headquarters in the global South.

Purpose of the role

Oxfam has had great successes with campaigns on specific issues including inequality, the broken food system, conflict and humanitarian issues and ending violence against women and girls. These campaigns are a source of significant strength and lie at the heart of the organization. Through our campaigns, Oxfam has the potential to engage millions more supporters to campaign alongside us. This is why we are working to further integrate campaign mobilization, public fundraising and communications strategies, to achieve stronger campaigning and influence, more supporters taking many more actions, more income and a stronger brand.

Working in close collaboration with our worldwide campaign teams, the Public Engagement Manager leads the creation and implementation of plans to engage millions of people to campaign alongside us, to deepen supporter engagement and generate income for Oxfam’s vision. She or he provides marketing, fundraising and communications leadership into worldwide, regional and national campaign plans, supported by relevant audience insights.

Closing date: 08 May 2017

Oxfam Intermón est l’organisation globale pour le développement qui mobilise le pouvoir des personnes contre la pauvreté et qui ont le pouvoir de changer des vies. Nous sommes une organisation activiste qui lutte contre l’injustice, la pauvreté et les inégalités et qui travaille sur les causes des problèmes.

NOUS CHANGEONS DES VIES QUI CHANGENT DES VIES. Voudrais-tu faire partie de la chaîne du changement?

Nous recherchons un/e Capacity Building Officer pour notre mission de RCA. Placé/e sous la supervision directe de la Manager du Programme Gouvernance basée à Bangui.

Contexte

Depuis le coup d’état, en mars 2013, les affrontements entre Seleka et les milices anti-Blalaka ont continué. Début décembre 2013, ces tensions ont augmenté causant une grande insécurité et des milliers de personnes ont fui leurs maisons à Bangui, vers les régions du centre et du nord et certains vers les pays voisins. L’insécurité a persisté et s’est aggravée, en particulier à l’ouest, au nord-ouest de la RCA ainsi qu’à Bangui, avec de sérieuses conséquences pour la protection des civils suite à la résurgence de la violence intercommunautaire perpétrée surtout par les milices anti-Balaka et ex-Seleka. Suite à la démission du président intérimaire en janvier 2014 un nouveau chef d’état intérimaire a prêté serment le 23 janvier 2014.

La crise en RCA a forcé plus de 1 million de personnes à fuir leurs maisons. Aujourd'hui, plus de 450 000 personnes restent déplacées, vivant dans la brousse, dans des sites ou des familles d'accueil. Ils sont environ 2,7 millions de Centrafricain qui dépendent à ce jour de l’aide humanitaire avec 1,2 million de personnes en insécurité alimentaire.

Methods, key duties and tasks

This study will detail and analyse the most common forms of payment systems for workers (salaried, straight piece rate, differential piece rate and straight piece rate with guaranteed base wage as well as group bonus) in the Bangladeshi RMG factories and assess how these payment systems interact and correlate with productivity improvements and/or efficiency gains in factories.

The analysis must consider the direct and indirect pathways between productivity improvements and payment systems.

Recommendations from the report should then be around conditions or linked ecosystems can be created to ensure that productivity improvements do flow partly back to workers in the form of higher pay.

The study must provide key recommendations, highlighting the best practice approaches based on the analysis of information gathered during the research. It must also cover the risks and challenges associated with this topic.

Sudokkho, through its partner-organisation, will assist the consultant(s) to identify around 10 appropriate factories to be visited. The consultant(s) will be responsible for arranging all meetings and coordinating logistics.

The consultant(s) will use structured questionnaires to conduct the interviews.
