This programme supports trainees to deliver projects, and contribute in other ways to our work, through varied placements in different areas and teams. The scheme also has a structured training programme, covering core skills and campaigning tools, and trainees are supported with their individual development.
Trainees on the scheme can expect to get a good understanding of how a large aid and development organisation works, particularly what Oxfam works on and how we do campaigning, policy and influencing. They do not need any previous work experience in campaigns and policy or the development sector, nor do they need a degree. Through taking part in the programme they have the opportunity to develop general skills, such as project management, communication and research, as well as learn campaigns skills, such as supporter mobilisation, power analysis, policy writing, lobbying &
influencing and digital campaigning.
Trainees are based in Oxford and are paid a salary equivalent to an annual salary of £17,215. We currently take four trainees per year, recruited at two moments in the year.
