Around the globe, Oxfam works to find practical, innovative ways for people to lift themselves out of poverty and thrive. They save lives and help rebuild livelihoods when crisis strikes, and campaign so that the voices of the poor influence the local and global decisions that affect them.
This is an Indigenous Identified role and is part of Oxfam Australia’s commitment to creating a culturally competent and diverse workforce.
This is a great opportunity for an Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander person who is interested in Oxfam Australia’s work with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and their work around the world.
Oxfam Australia’s Straight Talk program connects Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander women with the political system and builds the capacity of women as change makers. Including a focus on practical tools and confidence Straight Talk brings people together to share, learn and be effective in making a difference. The program includes opportunities for relationship-building between Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander women and parliamentarians, information-sharing and developing strategies for change in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities. The Straight Talk Coordinator is responsible for coordinating the Straight Talk program, the national summit and regional gatherings. The next national summit will be held in November 2018.
