Position description

Oxfam International is unable to guarantee the obtaining of a work permit for the role. Candidates must have and be able to retain the legal right to work in the EU.

One person in three in the world lives in poverty. Oxfam is determined to change that world by mobilizing the power of people against poverty. 

Around the world, Oxfam works to find practical, innovative ways for people to lift themselves out of poverty and thrive. We save lives and help rebuild livelihoods when crisis strikes. And we campaign so that the voices of the poor influence the local and global decisions that affect them. In all we do, Oxfam works with partner organizations and alongside vulnerable women and men to end the injustices that cause poverty.

Oxfam is an international confederation of 20 organizations networked together in more than 90 countries, as part of a global movement for change, to build a future free from the injustice of poverty. The Oxfam International Secretariat is currently headquartered in Nairobi, with offices in Oxford, Washington DC, New York, Brussels, Geneva, and a liaison office with the Africa Union in Addis Ababa.

This post will be part of the OI Secretariat Public Engagement team and based in the OI Secretariat Brussels.

The Role

Oxfam’s EU Advocacy Office challenges EU policies to make them work for people in poverty. Oxfam International is seeking an enthusiastic intern to help promote our work on issues ranging from migration to tax justice, climate change, income inequality and humanitarian assistance through creative and strategic media and communications work. You will gain hands on experience working with the EU advocacy and the media team of a leading international non-governmental organisation. You will develop your media drafting, social media, project management and analytical skills; and you will acquire practical knowledge of EU policy-making and legislative processes.
