Finance Officer for Empower
Youth for Work Program


Oxfam would like to start the program ‘“Empower
Youth For Work!”, starting June 1st (5 years) pending on funding.The
program’s ambition is that young people in Pakistan, Bangladesh, Ethiopia
and Indonesia are empowered and have improved skills and jobs. This program
focuses specifically on Small Medium Enterprise (SME) development; improved
jobs; skills development for youth; climate change, and Sexual Reproductive
Health Rights (SRHR). For this position you need to have the expertise
on economic empowerment with a combination of passion for youth rights
and skills. You need to be a creative thinker who enjoys innovating but
at the same time is organized and can deliver a project with high standards.
This will involve a great deal of coordination and problem solving therefore
you need excellent cross cultural communication skills.
Despite their growing numbers – 1.2 billion
of the world’s population is now aged 15 to 24 – young people are often
excluded from (decent and paid) work and decision

making. Young people especially in the rural
areas face similar challenges including lack of economic opportunities,
worsened by the impact of climate change, drives them into already overcrowded
and stressed urban centers. This threatens the future viability of rural
areas, and food security.

This program addresses these problems holistically,
with three key elements:

1. Agency, capacity & skills

2. Economic opportunities

3. Policy & norms

Youth will be co-creators and co-implementers.
Through civil society partners, and close links with the private sector
and government, we ensure that improved skills training is adopted within
local structures and innovative social enterprises; unemployment is tackled
through improved private sector practice, increased market access and new
enterprise development; an enabling social environment is created through
grassroots and mass media action. Climate change, resilience, gender and
youth empowerment are mainstreamed. 70% of beneficiaries will be rural
young women.
