Oxfam in Myanmar is implementing a women’s leadership and gender equality project in Rakhine State which aims to transform gender and power relations to empower women to actively and meaningfully participate in decision-making processes within their households and their communities.

The project takes an adaptive and participatory approach to programming and works in partnership with local organizations.

The Women’s Empowerment Programme Manager has overall responsibility for management of the project and relevant partner and donor relations. The successful candidate will work in Oxfam’s Sittwe office and lead a small team to provide strategic direction, and ensure effective implementation of project activities.
