We are seeking an organised, proactive and adaptable individual to join our growing Business and Biodiversity Programme as a Programme Officer. This role will work in close collaboration with other programmes at UNEP-WCMC to implement projects supporting improved biodiversity management by the financial and business sectors

Our team’s focus is on strengthening the role of natural capital in private sector decision making. We work to change the business case for biodiversity management; deliver the knowledge, data, tools and approaches for mitigating impacts and restoring biodiversity; and ensure businesses and their influencers have the capacity to act.

Working with financial institutions, and their stakeholders, for example governments and businesses, you will support the development of tools, standards, methodologies and metrics to enable the integration of biodiversity and natural capital into financial decision making.

You will be a capable project manager, able to work flexibly in response to developments in this fast-moving field and with a demonstrated ability to deliver high quality outputs. A clear and compelling communicator, you will be comfortable engaging with a range of audiences and stakeholders.

We will provide you with the opportunity to work on high impact projects, where your work really makes a difference to the field of conservation by helping address the impacts and dependencies of businesses on biodiversity and natural capital. Our team includes leading experts working on novel developments to assess the materiality of biodiversity and natural capital to businesses and financial institutions. In addition to training and development opportunities, we offer a competitive salary and benefits package, including generous pension contributions.
