Our working environment is diverse, inclusive and engaging. Our team has a mix of expertise and experience in philanthropy and other sectors including: not-for-profits, finance, development, government, media, law and academia, among others. Our staff are diverse and represent 20 nationalities.
We have 11 programmes, through which we have made more than 4,300 grants to organisations around the world. Our six main programmes are: Environment, Prevent Child Sexual Abuse, Housing and Homelessness, International Human Rights, Issues Affecting Women and Learning Differences. In addition our Trustees support causes that fall outside the remits of the other programmes through the Special Interest Programme. There are also four national programmes: Brazil, India, Oak Foundation Denmark and Zimbabwe.
Oak Foundation has its main administrative office in Geneva, Switzerland and a presence in five other countries: Denmark, India, the United Kingdom, the United States and Zimbabwe.
This is a great opportunity to join a diverse, international team within Oak Foundation’s climate sub-programme. This is a solutions-focused role to help tackle our greatest challenge: empowering communities to transition to a fairer, healthier and safer future.
The Issues Affecting Women Programme is seeking to hire a consultant to support the development of a grant-making strategy in Switzerland to gather relevant data and information on the specific needs and priorities of women’ organisations and networks as well as potential funding gaps in Switzerland and to establish priority areas in which Oak’s funding could have the most impact to advance women’s rights in Switzerland.
