Oxfam GB has appointed Dhananjayan Sriskandarajah as its new chief executive, taking over from Mark Goldring “around the end of 2018”. Sriskandarajah is currently secretary general and chief executive of CIVICUS, the Johannesburg-based global alliance of civil society organisations and activists with members in more than 180 countries.

He joined CIVICUS in 2013 and was previously director general of the Royal Commonwealth Society. Sriskandarajah said: “I am excited by the opportunity of leading Oxfam at this crucial point in its history. “It is an organisation which has spent more than three-quarters of a century doing amazing things to help people escape poverty and the hunger, disease and discrimination that come with it.
