Our Sectors

Disaster & Humanitarian   

With our extensive experience working with Humanitarian organisations, we know the intricacies involved in recruiting people working on the world’s most pressing issues.

Working across a range of demanding settings, from natural disasters, epidemics and conflict-affected states, these professionals are driven, passionate and dedicated.

Oxford HR recognises that these environments are multidisciplinary and interwoven with other agendas. Disaster and conflict sensitivity requires an understanding of how development programmes intersect with local conflict dynamics and can exacerbate tensions as well as strengthen stability.

Vacancies in these organisations can often be difficult to fill and urgent.

Our database houses thousands of professionals with the skills needed to tackle these problems. Our Interim search service can also help you to appoint an interim leader when you need them most and our Leadership & Change consultants can work to build resilience and cohesion.

Our team of researchers and consultants have direct experience of working in these kinds of challenging environments, which makes them excellently placed to identify and support the right candidates for field, executive and non-executive roles.
