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.
We are seeking qualified candidates to join the small Fundação Príncipe team, contributing to the development and management of a programme focused on the conservation of habitats and species and the promotion of sustainable livelihoods.
You will contribute to island-wide conservation activity including terrestrial biodiversity conservation and protected area management effectiveness, while liaising with both regional and national government. You will support the delivery of conservation capacity building to local groups and deliver other aspects of the FP’s operations, such as project management, team management and fundraising.
The post would be ideal for someone with experience in biodiversity conservation linked to sustainable livelihoods. You will use your technical skills and practical experience in using science and current approaches to develop and oversee the effective delivery of conservation projects. You will have good project management and fundraising skills, and demonstrable experience in community engagement, participatory approaches, and sustainable livelihood initiatives.
An excellent team player, you will enjoy working in a dynamic team environment where creative approaches and thinking are being brought to deliver projects. Experience raising funds for conservation will be an advantage. A degree or equivalent level qualification in a relevant discipline and good experience in a related role and working situation are expected. In return, employed directly by FFI and seconded formally to FP, the role offers the opportunity to work within two ground breaking and entrepreneurial organisations, at the forefront of conservation.
