3. Identify opportunities and make suggestions for impact, exchange and learning via Joint Country Analysis and Strategy (JCASs), affiliate strategies and programmes, and find and communicate synergies with Oxfam programmes.
4. Co-ordinate and lead Oxfam Internationalís external engagement on long-term G20 policy and strategy, and on cross-regional/global BRICSAM work, building alliances and relationships with global and regional BRICSAM/G20 actors.
5. Lead implementation of the agreed long-term strategy for Oxfam's work on the G20, including contributing to Oxfam's activities before, during and after summits, and ensuring monitoring and evaluation of Oxfam's G20 work.
6. Matrix-manage the rotating G8/G20 lead position hosted by the affiliate in the country that chairs each G20 meeting.
7. Resource mobilisation: Support fundraising colleagues to mobilise resources from local donors, foundations (international and emerging local foundations) and other sources to support Oxfam's G20/BRICSAM work.

Key Working Relationships
The post holder will report to the Oxfam International Deputy Advocacy and Campaigns Director, and also work closely with an appropriate senior staff member in the host Oxfam (to be confirmed). The post holder will also work closely with Oxfam staff in BRICSAM capitals, the three global campaign leads, interested affiliates and staff in other OI offices.

Key Competencies

1. Good knowledge of international politics and political processes, and in particular the role of the BRICSAM countries and the G20;
