Senior Anti-Corruption Specialist at Oxfam

  • Full Time
  • Malawi
  • Salary: 00


Oxfam is a global movement of people working together to end the injustice of poverty.

Are you an experienced investigator?

Would you be excited by a specialist role in one of the world’s leading humanitarian and development organisations?

Do you have a commitment to professionalism and enjoy imparting expert knowledge?


The Role:

Oxfam Great Britain is seeking a Senior Anti-Corruption Specialist who will be the Africa regional lead for the investigation and prevention of corruption affecting Oxfam’s work. Overseeing all anti-corruption initiatives, training and investigations across the region, the role holder will lead in the response to high risk incidents, advise senior organisational leaders on high risk issues and line manage one Anti-Corruption Specialist, mentoring and training them to ensure the highest standards are achieved and maintained in our work.

The role will focus on leading Anti-Corruption efforts in the Africa region.  While the preferred candidate would ideally be based in the region, we could potentially host this role remotely in other countries where Oxfam has a presence, provided you have right to work in that country.


What we are looking for:

You will have experience in investigation planning and techniques including victim and suspect interviewing, writing statements, evidence gathering and case presentation. You will have investigated serious and complex cases before and have a particular interest in fraud, corruption, and internal investigations. You will be expected to both oversee and supervise investigations taking place in your area of responsibility and conduct investigations yourself, supporting colleagues in other regions when required.

Providing expert advice to senior stakeholders, you will play a key role in responding to a range of incidents that may have security or regulatory implications. You must be experienced in taking difficult decisions, managing risk and being accountable for those decisions. You will be prepared and willing to travel, sometimes at short notice to hardship environments.

With a dual role in corruption prevention, you will have experience of implementing anti-corruption or counter fraud measures in organisations including delivering training, reviewing policies and developing risk assessments. You will ideally already have some experience of training and be a compelling public speaker, able to convey complex subjects concisely and accessibly to global colleagues.

A high degree of discretion and confidentiality will be essential as you will be handling large volumes of sensitive information. You will have an excellent understanding of risk management and have demonstrated good judgement in handling sensitive information, particularly from vulnerable people and confidential sources.

This is an excellent opportunity for those who already have professional experience, who are seeking additional responsibility and to branch out and gain experience of the INGO sector.


We offer:

You will join a highly motivated team dedicated to minimizing the impact of corruption on the communities, partners and donors Oxfam works with. A truly global organisation, you will interact daily with colleagues and communities from a wide range of communities. You will have regular opportunities to travel and gain experience and expertise in how corruption can impact the humanitarian and development sector and the communities it works with.



We believe flexible working is key to building the Oxfam of the future, so we’re open to talking through the type of flexible arrangements which might work for you. Oxfam’s Anti-Corruption Team and wider Integrity and Ethics Division is globally based. Remote working is a common practice within the team. Candidates should be willing and prepared to travel to fragile environments on a regular basis (approximately 4-5 times a year based on demand).
