 Organisation overview

Blue Ventures is an award-winning marine conservation organisation working to rebuild tropical fisheries with coastal communities. We’re committed to protecting marine biodiversity in ways that benefit coastal people. We work in places where the ocean is vital to local cultures and economies, and where there is a fundamental unmet need to support human development.

Summary Job Description

Do you have a passion for communication? Do you care about the marine environment and the communities who rely on it? Do you want to be part of a rapidly growing organisation as we scale our impact, catalysing conservation in some of the world’s most remote and important marine biodiversity hotspots? 

We’re looking for a committed and dynamic new team member with excellent writing and communication skills to join our senior staff in Madagascar. You will assist our Digital Manager and Madagascar Country Director and help build our national communications strategy, expanding our capacity to share our learning and experiences at all scales from community to international audiences.  

You will work closely with our conservation teams to document engaging and important elements of our work, using creative approaches including storytelling and new digital media, and building our voice within Madagascar and contributing to our international priorities. You will have an excellent grasp of the conservation and development sectors in Madagascar, as well as the complexity and sensitivity of the issues addressed by Blue Ventures’ work. You will be comfortable targeting communications to different audiences, in multiple languages, with a deep understanding of the potential channels available, be they traditional media or cutting edge online technology. You will lead our internal communications within Madagascar and will be expected to write and edit to a high standard, and produce digital media content for Blue Ventures’ and network websites and social media channels.

Above all, you will be motivated, adaptable and have outstanding communication skills. We want you to contribute ideas and passion and we’ll expect you to work hard to support our team. You will be based in our office in Antananarivo, but can expect to spend time travelling to our sites around Madagascar and further afield, allowing you to both produce and better coordinate content from the field, while deepening your understanding of our values and mission.
