I’m taking time out from blogging today partly because my computer’s on the blink, but also because I promised to plug someCartoon-JobInterviewGD new jobs in Oxfam that I thought would particularly interest the kinds of weirdoes intellectuals and deep thinkers who read this blog:

First up, our MEL pin-up Karl Hughes is off to the ADB, so if you fancy becoming our ‘global impact evaluation adviser’ (aka number cruncher in chief), now’s your chance. We need a seriously heavy hitter on this one – Job Description here, or go to the website. Closing date 13th Feb.

Second, my old chums in the research team are looking for a research officer. Again, top number crunching skills required, working in a great team led by Ricardo Fuentes. Details here. Closing date 7th February.

Finally, only a two month job, but really interesting, an great way to get a foot in the door/on the ladder and it’s on a topic dear to my heart: how change happens.  ‘A recent graduate/post-graduate and/or someone with research and writing skills and experience in international development, political or social sciences for a two month role, starting early February, to help produce some How Change Happens case studies.’ Be warned though – you may have to work with me on this one. Details here. Contact renglish[at]oxfam.org.uk. Closing date as soon as we find someone.

And if you’re in Leeds with nothing to do this evening, you can come to the University and hear me launch the second edition of FP2P at 5pm. Ditto Warwick University on Saturday.

    1. just click on ‘here’ and keep clicking Damian. Clunky I know, but it’s what happens when you upload documents, rather than link.
