Country & Operations Manager, Liberia
Fauna & Flora International

Salary: Commensurate with skills and experience
Start Date:   As soon as possible
Duration of Contract: One-year fixed-term contract
Location:  Monrovia, Liberia

Fauna & Flora International (FFI) protects threatened species and ecosystems worldwide, choosing solutions that are sustainable, based on sound science and take account of human needs. Operating in more than 40 countries worldwide, mainly in the developing world, FFI saves species from extinction and habitats from destruction, whilst improving the livelihoods of local people. Founded in 1903, FFI is the world’s longest established international conservation body and a registered charity.

Working closely with local partners, FFI’s Africa Programme currently operates in 14 countries in West, Central, East and Southern Africa, and is implementing a range of projects focused on species and habitat conservation, biodiversity planning, protected area management, institutional development and capacity building, sustainable use and community-focused wildlife management initiatives.

Liberia is home to large sections of Upper Guinean Forest rich in endemic and rare species. Diana monkeys, chimpanzees and other endangered species rely on this forest for their survival. Sadly, it is at risk from extreme and immediate threats, such as slash-and-burn agricultural expansion, mining and poaching. Liberia has been central to FFI’s West Africa programme since 1997 throughout recovery from years of conflict. Communities that were slowly returning to their ancestral lands now also need to cope with the further challenges presented by the biggest outbreak of Ebola HV to date.  FFI is helping them to secure sustainable livelihoods that work in harmony with biodiversity conservation.

The country’s forests are a hugely important asset to its people and need to be protected to ensure the long-term success of the country. Liberia is at a crucial stage in its development and it needs all the support it can get. FFI is committed to giving that vital assistance.

FFI is seeking a Country & Operations Manager who, as part of a small team, will provide support to the FDA (Forestry Development Authority) and FFI’s other local partners in Liberia. This person will have responsibility for the operational management, implementation and development of FFI’s programme of projects in Liberia. We are looking for an individual who is highly experienced in programmatic operations and staff management, with a strong technical background in relevant conservation management. The individual will need to have demonstrable experience in programme finance management and reporting, logistics, staff training and mentoring, institutional strengthening and effective incorporation of local communities in biodiversity conservation programme activities.
