‘We believe flexible working is key to building the Secretariat of the future, so we’re open to talking through the type of flexible arrangements which might work for you. We think this role would work particularly well as a partially home-based where it can be discussed with the line manager’.

We are committed to ensuring diversity and gender equality within our organization.

DEPARTMENT PURPOSE: Oxfam is an international confederation of 19 organizations networked together in 97 countries. As part of a global movement for change, we are working together to end world poverty and injustice. We work with thousands of partners in countries around the world and employ staff in a wide variety of sectors and expertise. We work directly with communities as well as with the powerful to facilitate an enabling environment wherein the most marginalized can improve their lives and livelihoods and have a voice in decisions that affect them.

TEAM PURPOSE: The Fair Finance Asia (FFA) program is a five-year program funded by the Swedish Embassy in Bangkok, Thailand. It aims to contribute to the reduction of the negative impact of cross-border investments on human rights, the environment and climate change, particularly those made by multinational financial institutions, banks and insurers, and to increase inclusive economic development. Currently, FFA is operational at regional level and in 8 countries across Asia, namely - Cambodia, India, Indonesia, Japan, Pakistan, Philippines, Thailand, and Vietnam – wherein national FFA civil society organization (CSO) coalitions together with regional partners lead research and engagement with the program’s key stakeholders including financial regulatory and policymaking institutions, banking and investment associations, multilateral development banks and the academia. FFA’s regional program management unit is stationed in Phnom Penh, Cambodia.

The FFA program works in close alignment with the Fair Finance Guide International (FFGI) which operates in 9 countries globally[i]. FFGI’s assessment reports on the policy and practices of banks and insurers at national level are envisaged to form part of FFA’s influencing and engagement toolkit in promoting sustainable finance and responsible investments.

The FFA program works in close alignment with Fair Finance International (FFI). FFI’s assessment methodology on the policy and practices of national financial institutions form part.

The Results areas for the FFA Program are as follows:
  1. Financial institutions (FIs) operating across the region increasingly adopt or improve sustainable finance policies, practices and public disclosure.
  2. Regulators and governments increase independent monitoring of FI policy, practice and accountability and transparency, and improve the regulation of FIs, including through mandatory regulation.
  3. Regional financial sector actors take increasing actions to require and enforce improved standards for FIs’ policies, practices, accountability and transparency.
  4. Strong and resilient civil society across the region effectively influences the sustainable finance agenda across the region, integrating a gender lens and community voice
  5. Other actors (intermediary stakeholders) have increased awareness and take increased action to influence the sustainable finance agenda

JOB PURPOSE: FFA is seeking an experienced Research and Advocacy Advisor with an advanced knowledge and understanding of the international sustainable finance landscape and with a particular focus on Asia.

The Research and Advocacy Advisor will closely work with the Program Lead to consolidate the FFA network’s body of knowledge on sustainable finance policies and practices and leverage this knowledge to shape and deliver strategic influencing messages and materials to specific audiences.
