We always need committed, passionate people who are willing to raise awareness of the issues and help us to push for long-term change.

Be an Oxfam Representative

Whether you are an experienced public speaker or would like to improve your confidence, we'd love you to help us raise awareness and inspire others at your organisation and beyond. As an Oxfam Representative, you'll be delivering exciting talks and interactive workshops about the life changing work that Oxfam does to fight the injustices of poverty. This could involve giving a number of public talks at work, but also in schools, community groups, church groups, sports clubs or even at Oxfam Shops! You'll spend a day with us to learn more about Oxfam's programme work and current campaigns, as well as developing your presentation and facilitation skills.

Location: UK
Time commitment: Six talks plus one day training

Campaign for change

Huge strides have been made in the fight against extreme poverty, and the work we do every day is helping more people build better lives. But on its own, it's not enough. Millions of people are still desperately trying to escape the pain and misery of poverty, facing barriers such as slave labour, conflict and discrimination at every turn. For women, these barriers are even greater. To beat poverty for good, we need to work together to break down those barriers. By volunteering as a Campaigns Coordinator in your workplace or community, you can influence decision makers and raise awareness of our campaigns by coordinating activities in your workplace. We can help you put on talks and video screenings, run petitions and events, engage with your local MP or newspaper, and even address your own business practice in a positive way. You can also join our growing network of campaigners who take-action in their local communities. Training and help is provided but our dedicated support team.
