WASH Programme Manager

This position is to be based in Yangon and opened for International Applicants and advertised Globally.


Oxfam is a leading International NGO with a worldwide reputation for excellence and over 70 years of experience. It’s not unfortunate that people live in poverty. With enough wealth in this world to go around it’s unjustifiable. It’s not just their problem. It’s ours too. Our humanitarian, development and campaigning programmes change lives around the world, and with the right support, we can beat poverty and injustice. Thousands of people already commit their time and talents to our campaigning, humanitarian and long-term development programmes. Now we’re looking for yours.

The role:                                   The WASH Programme Manager will lead the implementation of a multi-year programme providing high quality WASH services to more than 80,000 IDPs living in displacement camps in Sittwe, Rakhine State. Although located in a humanitarian situation, people have been living in IDP camps for five years – and the overall approach of this programme is to transition to more of a development style approach within the IDP camps. This requires a strong focus on WASH infrastructure upgrades during the first six months, with a transition to community ownership of the infrastructure following the upgrades. The Programme Manager will work closely across both Oxfam and SI, will work closely with teams to develop effective and appropriate transition strategies, will ensure effective coordination and efficient programme implementation, and ensure that the programme achieves its goals
