Description

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.

FFI is seeking a Senior Programme Manager, Nature-Based Solutions and Climate Finance to help lead FFI’s exploration of Nature-Based Solutions (NBS) and their potential in delivering integrated social and environmental benefits required to achieve Paris climate agreement targets. You will have strong technical skills in designing or implementing nature-based solutions (NBS) projects. You will be a skilled manager, with proven experience in developing and executing strategies for organisational growth, and you will be passionate about scaling viable, impact-driven models that deliver environmental and social impacts.

You will be comfortable driving thought leadership within an organisation and have a demonstrated ability to navigate the ambiguity in the early stages of programme development. You will have proven demonstrable experience of working quickly and effectively with diverse stakeholders (project teams, NGO partners, private sector partners, community entrepreneurs, and potential investors) with diverse levels of experience of using market-based approaches to finance conservation to achieve conservation objectives. This role requires a deep commitment to supporting staff, partners and communities in FFI-supported landscapes to make sustainable financing of conservation a reality.

This position is based in Cambridge within FFI’s Conservation Finance & Enterprise team. Some local and international travel will be required. In return, the role offers the opportunity to work within a ground-breaking and entrepreneurial organisation, at the forefront of global conservation. In addition, FFI offers a generous pension contribution, attractive annual leave allowance and life insurance.

Our offices are located in The David Attenborough Building in central Cambridge, just a few minutes’ walk from glorious historic buildings and museums, the picturesque River Cam, the central market and shopping centre, and a host of cafés and restaurants.    

The closing date for applications is Sunday, 14 June 2020.
