Oxfam is a global movement of people working together for a future without poverty. We give a hand up, not a hand out – to create positive change that lasts. Oxfam works in three ways: we respond to emergencies, saving lives and helping survivors recover; we provide people with the skills and resources to lift themselves out of poverty; and we campaign to change the unjust policies that keep people in poverty.
This role sits in the Supporter Relations team within Oxfam New Zealand’s (ONZ) Engagement Directorate.
