The Oxford Policy Fellowship Programme 2019 for early-career professionals (Fully Funded)

Plazo de solicitud: Friday 01 February 2019 at 12 noon (GMT),

Are you are looking for your next challenge, or planning a wholesale career move? Become an Oxford Policy Fellow for a unique opportunity to apply your legal knowledge within an international development context.

The Oxford Policy Fellowship Programme is specifically aimed at placing early-career professionals in low- and middle-income country governments to work as civil servants.

The Fellowship es el comienzo de un nuevo y emocionante capítulo en tu carrera. Abre la puerta a una carrera con una variedad de agencias internacionales, ONG, consultoras de desarrollo y organizaciones gubernamentales.

The Oxford Policy Fellowship aim to provide a valuable service to under-served Ministries in participating host countries. For example, the pilot placements range from working with Ministries of Finance and Planning Commissions, with an emphasis on legal frameworks for Public Private Partnerships, to more general policy advisor roles in Ministries of Agriculture. To date the Fellowship has partnered with ministries of finance, trade, agriculture, environment, energy, health and education in ten countries.

El programa tiene tres objetivos clave:

  • Proporcionar a los gobiernos asesores sobresalientes en las primeras etapas de la carrera, donde se necesita una capacidad adicional.
  • Para crear una comunidad de práctica de abogados y profesionales de la política en los gobiernos.
  • Fomentar una cultura de aprendizaje a través de nuestro innovador marco de seguimiento y evaluación.

La beca de política de Oxford también ofrece oportunidades profesionales transformadoras para los profesionales apasionados por el desarrollo.

The Fellowship is an initiative of Oxford Policy Management and its major funding partner is the UK Government’s Department for International Development (UK DFID). It has also received funding from the New Venture Fund and a private donation.

Requisitos de elegibilidad:

  • Depending on the specific post for which you are applying, a law degree, an LLM, a Masters in Law, a Masters in Public Policy, or a related field will be required. Useful interests and specialisations include commercial/finance law, contract law, environmental law, international law, health law and policy and development studiess
  • The Oxford Policy Fellowship are looking for outstanding candidates who have a demonstrable interest and some work experience in law and/or policy; relevant work or voluntary experience in a developing country; and strong computer skills.
  • También debe estar dispuesto a comprometerse a una publicación de dos años en cualquiera de los países participantes.
  • The commitment from all parties (governments, Fellows and the Fellowship) is for two full years. However, each posting is reviewed at the one year mark by all parties to ensure continued value add. Candidates should only apply if they are prepared to spend the two full years in post; it is very disruptive to the programme and to our relationships with government partners if Fellows leave for non-critical reasons mid-posting. Fellows can continue working with the government beyond two years, but the Fellowship only provides support for two years.


  • Candidates who are invited for the second-round panel interview will be reimbursed for their travel costs. If they are coming from overseas, we will organise and pay for your airfares and local Oxford accommodation.
  • Successful candidates will attend an Orientation training in early September before deploying to their posting. All Fellows are expected to deploy in September/October each year, and by the end of November at the latest. However this will depend on the start date agreed with the government, taking the notice period of the Fellow and the government’s preference into account.
