Nafeesa Usman

Research Manager, Europe

Nafeesa Usman

Nafeesa is the Research Manager for Europe based in Amsterdam, where she manages a team of researchers across the region. She has delivered search assignments with a wide range of clients including Greenpeace International, Porticus, Room to Read, Oxfam America, SNV and more. She was the lead researcher for a pan-Africa 92 role recruitment project for Africa CDC in 2022.

She enjoys learning about organisations we work with and finding passionate leaders that are committed to a better world.

She joined Oxford HR in 2021 after 7 years of work experience in the development sector in India where she mostly worked on research, impact evaluation, advocacy, and capacity building projects in the thematic areas of rural development, women empowerment, gender, and human rights. She has a master’s in development studies with a major in social justice perspectives and a specialisation in conflict and peace studies from the International Institute of Social Studies in the Hague. Born and raised in South India, Nafeesa speaks English, Tamil, Urdu, and Hindi and is currently learning Dutch.

I love what I get to do at Oxford HR. I like to think of it as matchmaking between impact-driven global organisations and inspiring individuals/leaders. I love that we are committed to change/progress, diversity, and inclusion within the non-profit sector as well as embracing what we preach.
