Become an Oxjam Takeover Manager


Last year 41 Takeovers entertained punters across the country , from Edinburgh to Exeter and  Cardiff to Cambridge.

These are amazing multi-venue events that literally take over a town or city for a whole day in October. They showcase the very best of local talent, and raise on average ten times more money for Oxfam than other Oxjam events. They're run entirely by the most skilled and dedicated volunteers we can find, who are interviewed and then appointed by the central Oxjam team.
