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

Do you have minimum 5 years professional work experience in international humanitarian/development work, including in the MENA region?

Do you have experience in managing and leading Consortia & technical expertise and experience in local economic development, livelihoods and/or social cohesion programming?

Do you have experience in representation and networking, in particular with Governments, humanitarian and development actors and donors?

If the answer is yes, then we would like to hear from you.

The Role

Oxfam Italia in partnership with Right to Play, SHiFT and ALEF is implementing a European Union-funded project entitled “Working for Engagement, Acceptance and Mediation: A Community-based Approach to Social Cohesion in Lebanon – WE’AM.” The project is implemented between March 2023 and December 2025 in Lebanon. WE’AM aims to leverage experiences and complementarities to build consensus and stimulate lasting social cohesion initiatives in Lebanon following three working streams: addressing drivers of tensions at the community level; disseminating gender-responsive conflict prevention and resolution tools and methods; mainstreaming community-level social cohesion into programming.

Under the supervision of the Project Steering Committee, and in close coordination with Oxfam’s Office in Lebanon, the Consortium Coordinator (CC) is responsible for providing vision, leadership and direction to the Consortium and its activities. S/he will supervise project implementation and ensure the project meets stated goals. The CC will ensure the consortium has a coherent strategy that responds to the requirements of people the project intends to support. Furthermore, the CC will take a leadership role in coordination and advocacy among donors, key stakeholders and implementing partners. The CC position requires diplomacy and ability to advocate on behalf and represent a coalition of partners.

Furthermore, the CC will lead on coordination and management of the Consortium ensuring synergies and strategy alignment is maintained across the consortium. The CC will coordinate the day-to-day programmatic coordination and grant management function for the Oxfam Italia’s component. The CC is accountable to the Steering Committee and coordinates with the senior management teams of each agency.

The CC is expected to work closely with the Governance and Economic Justice programme team and the Oxfam Policy team towards common objectives.


We believe flexible working is key to building the Oxfam of the future, so we’re open to talking through the type of flexible arrangements which might work for you. We think this role would work particularly well as a partially home-based role or job share.

Oxfam is committed to preventing any type of unwanted behaviour at work including sexual harassment, exploitation and abuse, lack of integrity and financial misconduct; and committed to promoting the welfare of children, young people, adults and beneficiaries with whom Oxfam  engages.

 All offers of employment will be subject to satisfactory references and appropriate screening checks, which can include criminal records and terrorism finance checks. Oxfam  also participates in the Inter Agency Misconduct Disclosure Scheme.  In line with this Scheme, we will request information from job applicants’ previous employers about any findings of sexual exploitation, sexual abuse and/or sexual harassment during employment, or incidents under investigation when the applicant left employment. By submitting an application, the job applicant confirms his/her understanding of these recruitment procedures.
