Integral to the success of the Vanilla Enterprise Development Project,
you’ll appreciate the importance of community initiatives and
know just how to get the best results from them. With the aim of
scaling-up vanilla farming, you’ll lead project development and
line management, all the while creating work plans, managing budgets
and submitting regular progress reports. On a broader scale,
you’ll design specific activities that are defined as
responsibilities and make sure partners and senior colleagues
are kept up-to-date on the latest marketing policy and strategy.
With the perfect balance of experience in business activities and
livelihoods work, you’ll bring much needed stability to Papua and
its communities. While your role will be heavily involved and
you’ll immerse yourself in its success, you’ll also need to retain
an overview of the project and be comfortable working in
an isolated location with minimum facilities. But more than that,
you’ll be flexible and resourceful, able to coach and build teams,
an excellent communicator and genuinely passionate for helping
Oxfam realise its beliefs.

It’s ours too. And with the right support, we can beat poverty
and injustice. More than 8,000 people already commit their time and
talents to our campaigning, humanitarian and long-term development projects.
Now we’re looking for yours.
