Full-Time Nature Positive Technical Specialist, Corporate Sustainability

Fauna and Flora International – Posted by nazish.a England, United Kingdom

Job Description

Location: Fauna & Flora International, Cambridge UK. Current policy offers partial remote working within the UK.

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.

FFI is at the cutting edge of policy and practice on nature positive, fully committed to taking this concept to halt and reverse the decline in biodiversity. This means rolling up our sleeves and getting fully stuck into the technical, practical and strategic aspects of nature positive – all the way from gains at a site level, to prioritising nature-based solutions, transforming raw material supply chains so that they are contributing positively to nature, to integrating nature into decision making throughout a company’s activities so that impacts and dependencies are acknowledged and addressed as a strategic business imperative.

Do you have what it takes?  FFI is seeking a Nature Positive Technical Specialist to play a key role in the design, development and integration of nature positive strategies within productive and extractive sectors across our global conservation and corporate engagement programme.

You will have proven technical skills in the assessment and design of nature positive pathways. You will understand and apply the core principles of nature positive. You will be skilled in defining the impacts and dependencies companies have on nature, their corporate decision-making processes and how these relate to nature, the provenance and pathways of their raw material supply chains and the application of nature-based solutions. You will have experience in both strategic and operational level performance and monitoring metrics for nature positive, including those required for reporting, voluntary disclosures and delivering net positive impact. You will have knowledge of emerging and established frameworks such as the Taskforce for Nature-based Financial Disclosures and Science-based Targets initiatives and be engaging in the discourse on nature positive. 

You will be experienced in the development and implementation of a spectrum of nature positive tools, including environmental economics, impact assessment, environmental and social safeguards, biodiversity risk assessments, raw material supply chain assessments, materiality assessment, implementing the mitigation hierarchy, and conceptualising and planning nature positive pathways.

 As a technical member of the team, you will work closely with colleagues and partners across FFI global conservation programmes and encourage the use of global best practices and objectives-led frameworks to ensure the integration of biodiversity and ecosystem services into all aspects of our work.

In return, the role offers the opportunity to work within an international, impactful and ground-breaking organisation, at the forefront of global conservation. In addition, FFI offers a generous pension contribution, attractive annual leave allowance and life insurance. Our offices are located in central Cambridge, just a few minutes’ walk from attractive historic buildings and museums, the picturesque River Cam, the central market and shopping centre, and many cafés and restaurants.
