Office and Admin Manager

Would helping Oxfam challenge extreme wealth inequalities make you leap out of bed each morning?

At Oxfam, we’re ending the injustice of poverty. For everyone. For good. We work alongside those impacted by disasters and help them rebuild afterwards. We confront the causes that keep people poor, like extreme inequality, discrimination against women, climate change, and the eviction of people from their land. We work alongside people living in less wealthy countries to build better lives for themselves. For Oxfam staff, this work gets us out of bed with the certainty that our work day is making a difference.

We are constantly looking at ways to do our work better and this role is crucial to make sure our ‘back-office’ tasks drive our work in emergencies and challenging injustice – as efficiently as possible. We are needing someone who:

  • gets a buzz when things run smoothly and to the very highest level
  • will challenge the status quo when things can be done better and then roll their sleeves up and get it done
  • is inspired by the challenge of doing the best possible with every donated dollar so that we ensure the best impact for our mission

We seek a dynamic, self-starter who shares our values of courage, justice and connectedness and has a wealth of experience and expertise to share. We offer a great and flexible working environment with a supportive culture, strong values and the opportunity to be part of a small, dedicated and hard-working team making a positive difference in our world.

About the role

  • overseeing the smooth running of the administration, on/off boarding of staff, policies and processes of our Auckland office
  • managing and coordinating the office activities of the organisation from board meetings, to functions, to office supplies, connecting well with external providers
  • monitoring operational budgets, including managing and maintaining key vendor support contracts
  • assisting with the administration and organisational requirements of our international development projects and responses to emergencies
  • providing exceptional administrative services of the highest level to a range of people both within and outside of Oxfam

About you

Your experience of providing office management, administrative and secretarial support at senior levels will be matched by your proactive and results-oriented nature.  Your communication skills will help you build relationships quickly, and your honesty, integrity and commitment to quality will be second to none.  You will also have advanced skill in Microsoft’s Office Suite with a good knowledge of both IT and HR management systems.

We offer flexibility of hours, great work culture and an amazing global Oxfam network. Join us! Click here to hear what Oxfam employees have to say!
