Oxfam's CEO, Directors and Trustees
Oxfam's Leadership Team
Dr Dhananjayan (Danny) Sriskandarajah, CEO
I joined Oxfam GB as Chief Executive in January 2019.
I previously led CIVICUS, the Johannesburg-based alliance of civil society organisations with members in more than 180 countries. Prior to that, I spent four years as Director General of the Royal Commonwealth Society.
I was born in Sri Lanka in the 1970s and was initially raised in a rural community without electricity or running water. My family was displaced by the onset of a brutal civil war and I spent time in Papua New Guinea and Australia, where I went to school and university.
I moved to the UK in 1998 and completed my Masters and Doctorate in international development at Oxford University as a Rhodes Scholar, and became a British citizen in 2010.
The contrast between the wealth and opportunity of life in the global north with my early years in rural Sri Lanka has given me a passion to take on the root causes of poverty, and I am committed to Oxfam's long-standing approach to speaking out against injustice.
Oxfam has been close to my heart for many years. Prior to joining as CEO, I worked alongside Oxfam colleagues on numerous fronts, from addressing threats to civic space to co-founding the Fight Inequality Alliance.
In the media, I have been a regular contributor to outlets including BBC World Service, the Guardian, Al Jazeera and HuffPost. You can find me on Twitter @dhnnjyn. You can also read my blog at danny.oxfam.org.uk.
Jane Cunliffe, Chief Financial Officer
I joined Oxfam GB as Chief Financial Officer in June 2020. I am responsible for overall financial strategy, planning and reporting, governance and our legal team. I was thrilled to join Oxfam and feel a deep personal commitment to its mission of ending poverty and inequality. I am excited to work with colleagues to look at how we transform Oxfam over the coming decade.
Before this role, I spent 18 years in the Civil Service, including roles as the Director for Strategic Finance at the Department for Work and Pensions, the Director for Public Spending at HM Treasury and head of school funding policy at the Department for Education. I was also Deputy Principal Private Secretary to the Deputy Prime Minister from 2013 to 2015. I began my career in the civil service in the Department for Education in 2002.
I have degrees in History and Public Policy from the University of Sheffield, and Kings College, London, and a professional qualification with the Chartered Institute of Management Accountants.
I am a trustee and non-executive Director at the Howard Partnership Trust, a multi-academy trust based in Surrey. I'm married to Steve, who is a ceramic artist, we have two sons, and a Labrador who keeps us active.
Andrew Horton, Trading Director
I joined Oxfam GB as Trading Director in November 2011. I'm responsible for the organisation's 650 shops, 26,000+ strong volunteer workforce, and other commercial activities such as the Oxfam Online Shop, the Wastesaver textile recycling plant and Oxfam's 'boutiques'.
As an experienced retail industry professional, I spent my early retail career at Clarks before working for 10 years as a director of an international confectionery retailer. I then spent seven years as Head of Franchising at French Connection and Nicole Farhi, before becoming Group Retail Director at Ben Sherman. Prior to joining Oxfam GB, I was the Managing Director of footwear company Dune International Ltd. I have operated and developed shop networks in 47 countries and travelled to 40+ others.
I studied at UEA and have a degree in Development Studies. I'm originally from Liverpool and now live in Hampshire with my wife Jane. I joined Oxfam because I thought it would be a challenging role, where I could keep learning and have the chance to use my degree and retail experience together to make a difference.
Nicola Tallett, Director of Engagement
I joined Oxfam GB in November 2016 as Deputy Director of Fundraising and was appointed Audience Engagement Director in October 2018. With a new audience focused strategy, I'm responsible for ensuring that in our public activities, we listen and respond to the interests and focus of our supporters. When you're in contact with Oxfam (for whatever reason), it should be easy, interesting, informative and inspiring. And if it is, you'll join our hundreds of thousands of supporters already running, selling, buying, giving, pledging, acting, volunteering and sharing that together will help end poverty, now and forever.
As a bit of background, my first charity role in 1993 was at World Vision and since I've worked across UK and international charities for humanitarian and development programmes and medical and child-welfare causes. Immediately before joining Oxfam I consulted for two years with a range of charities on their strategies and income generation. I was a founding trustee of AfricaCheck (Africa's first fact-checking organisation) and am a trustee of Livability in honour of my sister who was a beneficiary of their services.
Having taken a Metallurgy degree in Oxford with Oxfam quite literally on my doorstep, I am now proud to be able to use my years of charity and communication experience to further develop engagement with our supporters so that every one of their actions is rewarding and valued. When not in work, my husband and I might be found on our motorbikes, or taming the tangled vegetation that is our garden.
Steve Kingstone, Communications Director
My career began in journalism: as a BBC Correspondent, I worked across television, radio and online outlets reaching UK and international audiences. For more than I decade, I was based overseas, with extended postings in Brussels, Madrid, Sao Paulo and Washington. Covering some of the biggest stories of the time gave me an insight into a range of global issues. I was also fortunate to work with some outstanding colleagues from many different countries and cultures.
In 2013 I returned to the UK to take up a senior role in the communications team for the Royal Household, based at Buckingham Palace. Later, as The Queen's Media Secretary I led the Palace response to major national events and news stories. I also travelled overseas with the Queen and other members of the royal family, including Prince William (Middle East) and Prince Harry (Brazil, Chile and Nepal).
My move to Oxfam GB in September 2018 was driven by a deep-seated belief in all that Oxfam stands for. The fight to end poverty, in all its forms, is something we should all be invested in. Through its various phases, my career has been about telling people's stories and I am grateful for the opportunity to do that here.
Tina Proudlock, People Director
I joined Oxfam as People Director in the spring of 2017. I chose HR as a career because I enjoy finding ways to enable people to be the best version of themselves, enhancing their skills and capabilities as teams and individuals. I love learning, and have enjoyed my journey in HR in two very different organisations whilst deepening my "toolkit" of HR practice.
I am now at a point in my career where I want to use that knowledge to impact not just the people who work for the organisation, but in turn make a positive difference to people worldwide whom Oxfam supports in so many ways.
Tina comes to Oxfam with a breadth of experience in leading HR functions in the business sector. She started in HR in Virgin Retail and has spent the last eight years at Affinion - an international global engagement solutions business. There she developed and delivered an international HR strategy to support a growing, fast-changing and complex matrix business.
John Plastow, International Programmes Director
In February 2019, I was excited to return to Oxfam to take up the position of International Programmes Director at Oxfam GB.
With the support of our globally-located team, I am responsible for leading Oxfam GB's contribution to Oxfam's long-term development, influencing and humanitarian work - with a specific focus on programme quality, evidence, learning, funding and partnerships.
Prior to this role, I spent most of my career working for international NGOs at country, regional and global levels. I began as a teacher with VSO in Western Kenya. Then, after a year at Comic Relief, I became involved in humanitarian response in Northern Iraq and Sri Lanka. I spent a couple of years at ACORD, a pioneering organisation that was one of the first to transfer its global headquarters from the UK to Africa, and later worked in Sudan and then in Tanzania as Oxfam Ireland's first overseas Country Director. On returning to the UK, I became CARE International UK's Programme and Policy Director for eight years.
Most recently I have worked independently, supporting both Muslim Aid and CanDo - an organisation championing local humanitarian action. In 2018, I conducted a review of the role of civil society in the response to the Grenfell disaster in the UK.
I gain a lot of my personal inspiration from the opportunities that come from shared partnership and collaboration with local communities and organisations, delivering real changes to overcome poverty and injustice.
In addition to having the privilege of being able to do a job to which I am passionately committed, I am the proud dad of two teenage boys who have a strong Anglo-Italian identity.
Clifford Isabelle, Global Safeguarding Director
As well as being part of Oxfam GB's Leadership Team, I work with a team of experienced safeguarding colleagues to embed good safeguarding practice within Oxfam GB.
I am a qualified social worker with experience of child protection and safeguarding with significant experience in local government and law enforcement. Before Oxfam I was with the National Crime Agency, where I worked on large-scale safeguarding operations - within the UK and internationally - with a focus on case work, strategic guidance and ensuring there was a multi-agency approach in working with survivors of abuse.
A great deal has already been done within Oxfam to look at both what we do and how we do it. Now, I am really excited to bring my experience, skills and commitment to Oxfam, and focus our collective efforts to further improve safeguarding policies, practice and behaviours.
I am privileged to work with experienced safeguarding focal points in countries and regions, as well as with our Trading safeguarding specialists in the UK. Outside of Oxfam my work with external agencies is also crucial and a particular priority is our work with partners and the communities we are here to serve.
I am committed to ensuring we continue to create a cultural change in the way safeguarding is understood and managed at Oxfam.
Dr Fenella Porter, Co-Director of Women's Rights & Gender Justice
I have worked on gender justice and women's rights for over 25 years, as a teacher, researcher, activist, and practitioner. After working for women's rights organisations in Canada and East Africa, I returned to the UK and joined Oxfam for a few years in the 1990s. I then moved on to do my PhD, and I taught and published for 12 years at post-graduate level in gender, development and international labour, as well as remaining involved as an activist. I have been deeply embedded in the women's movement in the UK as well as internationally, including as a board member of Womankind Worldwide. I have also had extensive involvement with workers' rights and the international trade union movement.
I came back to work for Oxfam in April 2017, firstly as Gender Policy Advisor and latterly as interim Deputy Director of Women's Rights & Gender Justice from January 2019. Since July 2019 I have been recruited to the role of Co-Director (with Saranel Benjamin, who joins in September 2019) of Women's Rights and Gender Justice. In this role we are jointly responsible for providing vision and strategic feminist leadership in Oxfam GB, and for ensuring that gender justice sits at the heart of all we do. I am convinced that embracing feminist principles will help to make all of our work better, give us an inspiring and enabling workplace, and make us a more effective international development organisation.
Saranel Benjamin joins me in post as Co-Director in September. Saranel is an activist of South African origin who is currently Interim Head of Research and Programme Policy at ActionAid. Prior to ActionAid UK, Saranel was Director of International Development at War on Want where she worked with organisations and social movements in Latin America, Africa and Asia. She is also a Board Member of the Gender & Development Network.
Saranel Benjamin, Co-Director of Women's Rights & Gender Justice
I was born and raised in apartheid South Africa, in the beach town of Durban. It was during the struggle against apartheid and racial injustice that I committed my life's work to fighting for social and economic justice. Following the dismantling of apartheid, I worked with the trade union and other emerging social movements. I wanted the female workers/community activists to feel heard and able to demand answers and clarity from within their groups, as well as in the wider political environment.
In 2009, I moved to the UK and worked as a development consultant for a few years before joining War on Want. In my first role I had the privilege of working with informal traders and people living in informal settlements in sub-Saharan Africa. In my second role I became Director of International Development, overseeing a range of programmes working with social movements, workers collectives and human rights defenders in Africa, Asia, and Latin America. I later went on to join ActionAid UK as Interim Head of Research and Programme Policy to work specifically, and with a more feminist approach, on women and girls' rights.
I am excited to now be part of Oxfam GB as it continues its journey towards being an organisation that puts women's rights at the heart of the struggle for social and economic justice. I will be working in partnership with Fenella Porter, my Co-Director of Women's Rights and Gender Justice. We are committed to providing both vision and strategic feminist leadership to ensure that gender justice women's rights together with our feminist principles sit at the heart of all we do.
Kate Sayer, Director of Integrity & Ethics
Before joining Oxfam in January 2020, Kate was a consultant to charities and international NGOs. Her recent consultancy assignments have focussed on improving risk management and decision-making in complex organisations, leading changes in culture to increase levels of compliance with ethical frameworks and leadership development. Kate co-founded a charity specialist audit and advisory firm Sayer Vincent in the 1980s. While at Sayer Vincent, Kate was the audit partner for many INGOs and an approved principal for EU and USAID audits.

Before joining Oxfam, Kate was a Senior Visiting Fellow in the Faculty of Management at Cass Business School at City University.

She is currently Chair of Bond, the umbrella body of UK international development organisations.
Alison Court, OGB Director of Transformation
I joined Oxfam GB as Director of Transformation in January 2020 and am responsible for driving implementation of our new strategic vision through structures, systems and processes that increase our effectiveness and impact. I'll be working closely with the leadership team and colleagues across Oxfam GB and the wider confederation in order to get this done.
My skills and experience are in designing and delivering complex transformation. I have joined Oxfam GB on an 18 month secondment from the role of Deputy Director at the UK government's Cabinet Office. Prior to that I held senior strategic and programme management roles with the Civil Service, Oxford Brookes University and the Open University amongst others.
I'm delighted to be working at Oxfam with colleagues who are clearly inspired by the work they do. The role is a challenging one as we build our strategy to become the organisation we want to be by 2030, but I'm excited to be here helping Oxfam GB at this critical point in our development.
Oxfam's trustees are ultimately responsible in law for the charity, its assets and activities.
They form the Council of Trustees, which is the governing body of the Association of Oxfam (a not-for-profit limited-liability company). They are appointed because of their commitment to Oxfam and their experience and skills which enable them to undertake the responsibilities of trusteeship of a large and complex charity.
Reports on council meetings can be found on the plans, reports and policies pages.

"I was called to the Ghana Bar in 1996 and the plan was to go into private legal practice until I found myself in the Gambia working as a Legal Officer with the African Commission for Human and Peoples Rights. It was there that I discovered my true calling, I believe. This was 1997/98 - at the height of Sani Abacha's excesses, and several civil society organisations (from Nigeria especially) engaged the Commission actively and fought for democracy and the respect for and protection of human rights in their countries. This fight for social justice was one I fully identified with and wanted to be a part of. I have not looked back since.
In 2004, I coordinated the work of the over 200-member coalition that pushed for a legal framework to protect survivors of domestic violence in Ghana and I have been an active member of the women's movement. Through my work with the Open Society Initiative for West Africa (OSIWA) as Governance Program Officer and Country Coordinator for Nigeria I pushed for an enabling environment for civic engagement, consolidating democracy, transparency and accountability in governance, the respect, promotion, protection and fulfillment of human rights in the sub-region. As the Regional Policy Advisor for West Africa for Ibis West Africa, I contributed to the organisation's work on improving natural resource governance, local governance and education, especially in Ghana, Sierra Leone and Liberia.
Currently, I head the West Africa Civil Society Institute (WACSI), an organization with a mission to strengthen the capacity of civil society primarily in West Africa, but also beyond, to become more effective, efficient and sustainable in the fight for social justice and contribution to development.
Oxfam GB's mission of ending poverty and fighting inequality resonates with me on several levels and it is both a pleasure and privilege for me to join the team as a Trustee. I hope to contribute all I can towards achieving this noble mission and trust that I'll learn a lot too."
