About Oak Foundation
Oak Foundation commits its resources to address issues of global social and environmental concern, particularly those that have a major impact on the lives of the disadvantaged. With offices in Europe, Africa and North America, Oak Foundation has an annual grant-making budget of over USD 250 million and makes grants to organisations located in 41 countries worldwide.
The Prevent Child Sexual Abuse Programme is working to end child sexual abuse and exploitation online and offline. Oak Foundation promotes innovative solutions to prevent abuse and gets behind the advocates and activists working to end impunity and holding governments and global institutions accountable. For more than 20 years this programme has supported organisations that share this commitment with multi-year project and core support grants.
About the role
Oak Foundation is looking for a dynamic Programme Officer who will also spearhead a new grant-making campaigns strategy to stop online abuse. This will include: holding technology companies accountable; increasing investments in technological solutions; and building new pressure groups. The person will also work closely with the Director and the team to strengthen our campaigning work across the grant portfolio.
Purpose of the role
The person will lead and support our two sub-programme teams (Solutions and Advancing Action and Accountability and Ending Impunity). The person will be implementing the strategy defined by these teams, including: changing the way the sporting industry looks at competitive child athletes; holding major financial institutions and large-scale sporting organisations responsible for their commitments to children; and making the issue of child sexual abuse a political priority.
