About Oxfam

Oxfam is a global movement of people working together to end the injustice of poverty.

That means we tackle the inequality that keeps people poor. Together we save, protect and rebuild lives. When disaster strikes, we help people build better lives for themselves, and for others. We take on issues like land rights, climate change and discrimination against women. And we won’t stop until every person on the planet can enjoy life free from poverty.

We are an international confederation of 19 organisations (affiliates) working together with partners and local communities in the areas of humanitarian, development and campaigning, in more than 90 countries.

All our work is led by five core values: Accountability, Empowerment, Equality, Inclusiveness and Sustainability.

As an agency undertaking work both nationally and internationally and in humanitarian response, Oxfam takes its duty of care seriously to safeguard children, young people and adults and recognises that it must meet community expectations and the trust placed in its personnel to maintain the highest standards of conduct with children. Therefore, all positions within Oxfam are required to comply with the One Oxfam Child Safeguarding and Protection from Sexual Exploitation and Abuse policies and all staff sign the Oxfam Australia Child Safeguarding and One Oxfam Employee Codes of Conduct.

To achieve this, the MEL Advisor provides technical support to strategic and programme design processes, business development opportunities as well as ongoing monitoring, evaluation and learning processes.

The role works closely with colleagues globally and in Australia to promote learning and knowledge management and facilitates processes related to the capture, analysis, dissemination and access to programmatic data and knowledge.
