Full-Time Executive Manager, Conservation Leadership Team
Founded in 1903, Fauna & Flora International (FFI) is the world’s longest established international conservation organisation. Our vision is to create a sustainable future for the planet where biodiversity is conserved by the people living closest to it. We aim to do this through the conservation of threatened species and ecosystems worldwide, choosing solutions that are sustainable, based on sound science and take account of human needs. We have become a trusted entity in the world of conservation. Today FFI is active in over 40 countries.
The Conservation Leadership Programme is looking to recruit an Executive Manager to lead this dynamic partnership programme. The role of the Executive Manager is to direct strategic programme development, fundraising and collaborations, deliver the annual business plan, manage a small team across the three conservation organisations, manage financial resources and ensure the smooth running of day-to-day operations. There will be opportunities to be creative in finding ways to engage and support a cadre of developing conservation leaders from around the world, and a requirement to facilitate training and workshops in pursuit of CLP’s goals.
The Executive Manager will have a relevant degree or equivalent level qualification and significant relevant work experience in the conservation sector or a related field. The successful candidate will have strong programme management experience. You will demonstrate a proven track record of fundraising and experience of strategic planning. You will be an inspirational leader, have strong communication skills and have experience of successfully managing geographically dispersed teams. You will have extensive experience in facilitating training and workshops (in-person and online) in a related field. You will be excited about the prospect of working collaboratively across three well-established conservation organisations.
In return, the role offers the opportunity to work within a ground-breaking and entrepreneurial organisation, at the forefront of global conservation, with opportunity to apply your skills and expertise where appropriate. In addition, FFI offers a generous pension contribution, attractive annual leave allowance and life insurance.
Our offices are located in The David Attenborough Building in central Cambridge, just a few minutes’ walk from glorious historic buildings and museums, the picturesque River Cam, the central market and shopping centre, and a host of cafés and restaurants.
