1 Page 1 of 6 JOB TITLE: WASH Manager, Zimbabwe LOCATION: Harare - Zimbabwe SALARY: JOB FAMILY: Programme Technical LEVEL: C1 National OXFAM PURPOSE: To work with others to overcome poverty and suffering TEAM PURPOSE: To act with poor people as a force for change in addressing the causes of poverty, suffering and injustice and alleviating their symptoms JOB PURPOSE: To strengthen Oxfam's humanitarian and development WASH role in Zimbabwe (priority 1 country) by developing a strategy to address both short and long term needs, managing risk analysis, programme design and quality control of emergency response and resilience programmes, and to assess and build capacity of Oxfam partners and staff in line with regional and organisational objectives. REPORTING LINES: Post holder reports to: Deputy Country Director Staff reporting to this post: Matrix management of PHE and PHP direct management of technical staff in an emergency scale up. BUDGET RESPONSIBILITY: to be decided by Humanitarian Programme Coordinator Background The WASH context in Zimbabwe has extended beyond emergency response and now requires a more holistic approach to resilience programming. This is inspired by the realisation that due to climate change, increasing population and other factors, the nature of water related challenges in the region require broader approaches. Evolving regional and national political processes also point towards the need for integrated water resource management in processes that span major river basins and engage with relevant policy processes that govern the right to water. Oxfam will engage in broader intervention frameworks that bring together economically sustainable livelihood activities, self sustaining and low cost water extraction technology, stronger service provision by authorities, waterway catchment area level interventions, and conservation of the environment. Yet even within this broader approach, Oxfam will maintain capacities to respond to WASH related crises as vulnerability is still widespread. In Oxfam, the humanitarian team, comprised of a Humanitarian Programme Coordinator, a Food Security Coordinator and a WASH Manager will work with partners to respond to emergencies and ensure that there are clear strategic and practical links to longer term initiatives. Oxfam will continue to influence the humanitarian sector in Zimbabwe and provide technical support to the Government of Zimbabwe and to other humanitarian stakeholders, using organisational global experience and expertise. The humanitarian team will also engage strategically with coordination structures, donors and other decision making bodies, using evidence based research to influence them for action nationally and regionally, and to ensure that the good practices in Zimbabwe are shared globally. Globally, Oxfam is one of the leading agencies WASH agencies, leading on innovative emergency and resilience work. The WASH Manager will be responsible for ensuring that this work is integrated into the Zimbabwe programme, and that the correct technical expertise is available to the team to ensure that Oxfam can provide technical support to others.

2 Page 2 of 6 The Humanitarian team will be responsible for ensuring that Oxfam maintains excellent technical programme quality of food security and WASH programmes, and will spend at least 50% of their time on direct support to Oxfam partners. They will work to help to build the capacity of partners in mitigation, preparedness, response and recovery within the core Oxfam Zimbabwe programme structure. During larger emergencies, the Humanitarian team may be tasked by the Country Leadership Team with directly managing the response.
