Fancy being a member of  Oxfam’s National Youth Board?

Being a member will give you the power to shape Oxfam’s campaigning, training and awareness-raising projects with young people! You will develop new skills in campaigning, communications and teamwork. You’ll get an insider’s look at a big UK charity and have the opportunity to be part of exciting events as a youth representative of Oxfam.

Key responsibilities:

  • Advise Oxfam on youth engagement plans and activities: This is likely to include: helping to develop new ideas for projects and events; giving feedback about the overall plan for the year; helping them to evaluate their activities.
  • Contribute to national communications: This is likely to include: writing blogs for their youth website, writing articles for magazines or emails; advising on how Oxfam communicate with 16-25s in particular.
  • Help to train and support other young people to explore global issues: This is likely to include: helping to train members of Oxfam’s regional groups; providing advice to young people who are interested in learning about or campaigning on global issues; sharing information with people at your college, university or workplace.

Skills and competencies

They’re actively looking for people from a wide variety of backgrounds to join Oxfam Youth Boards.

  • An enthusiasm to get involved in Oxfam’s campaigning work: No previous experience of campaigning is required and you don’t have to know lots about international issues. What you do need is a genuine enthusiasm to learn about both.
  • A proactive, get-up-and-go approach : Campaigning is about getting things moving, making things happen and having an impact, so they’re looking for people with natural get-up-and-go and a ‘can do’ attitude.
  • Excellent teamwork skills: You’ll work with staff, volunteers and other members of Oxfam Youth Boards so you’ll need to be able to show them you understand how to work with others in an effective way.
  • Good communications skills: They will work with you to develop your communication skills further, but you’ll need to already be comfortable thinking about different audiences, how to get a message across, and speak and write well about difficult issues (e.g. climate change).
  • Experience of being involved with Oxfam or a similar organisation: Experience being involved with Oxfam before is desirable but not essential (e.g. as a volunteer, campaigner or member of a regional youth board). If you’re new to Oxfam, you’ll need previous involvement with a charity or organisation which can inform your views on how Oxfam might engage young people (e.g. involvement with UK Youth Parliament or an Amnesty group).

What this role can offer the volunteer:

  • Your chance to help change the world and make a real difference to people living in poverty and suffering worldwide.
  • A voice in Oxfam and its work
  • A role as a member of your local group but also as part of the wider Oxfam community
  • The chance to have fun and develop your skills with a team of inspiring people
  • The unique opportunity to develop existing skills, gain experience in campaigning and learn more about one of world’s leading charities
  • The opportunity to meet new people
  • An enhanced CV
  • Out of pocket expenses will be reimbursed where agreed.
