WASH Coordinator (Community Mobilisation Lead)

Oxfam in Myanmar is looking for WASH Coordinator (Community Mobilisation Lead).

Job Purpose

To lead the implementation of the Community Engagement and Hygiene strategy for the Sittwe Humanitarian WASH programme and Oxfam WASH Team. This position will be part of the team who will lead the implementation of a multi-year programme providing high quality WASH services to more than 100,000 IDPs living in displacement camps in Sittwe, Rakhine State. Oxfam works in partnership with Solidarites International (SI) in this programme, and in close collaboration with Camp Management Agencies and other WASH actors.

Whilst the context is humanitarian, people have been living in IDP camps for five years – and the overall approach of this programme is to transition to community development approaches promoting strong community engagement and community ownership of facilities and services within the IDP camps. This requires a strong focus on the upgrading of WASH infrastructure upgrades during the first nine months, with a transition to community ownership of the infrastructure following the upgrades. Many transitional strategies are to be developed and implemented across the camps, with a view to transition of services to external agencies (government or private sector), an increase in market based approaches, greater investment in community mobilisation, accountability, protection, and new approaches to hygiene promotion.
