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 operate primarily in developing countries where there is little capacity to conserve endangered and threatened habitats and species.  We have become a trusted entity in the world of conservation.  Today FFI is active in over 40 countries.

FFI is seeking a Technical Advisor (TA) to oversee the bio-monitoring and research activities in Sapo National Park (Sapo NP), Liberia.  Working from a base at Sapo NP in southeast Liberia, the TA will be responsible for ensuring the effective delivery of the Monitoring and Research components of the current FFEM-funded programme entitled “Conserving Biodiversity in and around Sapo National Park, Liberia “, in addition to overseeing the launch and implementation of the BHPB-Flagship Species funded project “Building knowledge and capacity of Liberian Scientists Through Pygmy Hippo Conservation”.

The TA will be expected both to ensure the smooth implementation of the bio-monitoring programme and ensure the long-term sustainability of such work through a strong capacity building component targeted at Liberians from various stakeholder groups. The TA will also be closely involved in co-ordinating and further developing research activities in and around Sapo NP.

We are looking for a dynamic team player with a strong background in bio-monitoring, capacity building and project management along with excellent communication and leadership skills to oversee the bio-monitoring and research activities in Sapo NP, Liberia. Essential requirements include an advanced degree or qualification in conservation, natural resources management, or other relevant discipline, considerable practical experience in the development of both bio-monitoring and research programmes, a strong interest and background in capacity building and implementation of training activities and an understanding of working in post-conflict or otherwise unstable situations.
