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.

FFI is seeking a qualified candidate for the position of Senior Technical Specialist, Blue Carbon.  Responding to the increasing interest in blue carbon project development across the global marine portfolio, you will play a vital role in undertaking project feasibility assessments and supporting field teams and partners in the development of blue carbon projects, including addressing key knowledge gaps. This is an opportunity to lead the development of blue carbon focused projects at a global scale, helping to drive profound and positive change for communities and biodiversity reliant on vulnerable coastal ecosystems.

In this technical role you will use your substantial experience in blue carbon project development and the assessment of carbon storage and sequestration in marine and coastal habitats, to lead the nascent pipeline of blue carbon opportunities in collaboration with our multi-disciplinary team of regional and cross-cutting experts, and partner organisations. You will use your networks and connections to identify opportunities for funding and technical partnerships, and lead on project management, capacity development and communications. You will have a passion for marine and coastal biodiversity conservation, coupled with a strong proven track record in multi-stakeholder coordination and blue carbon project development.

In return, the role offers the opportunity to work within an international, impactful and ground-breaking organisation, at the forefront of global conservation.
