Description

Founded in 1903, Fauna & Flora International (FFI) is the worlds 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 an experienced conservation professional to fulfil the role of Technical Specialist Illegal Wildlife Trade, Liberia, assuming responsibility for the implementation and day to day management of a DEFRA Illegal Wildlife Trade (IWT) Challenge Fund grant, in conjunction with co-financing, to develop a programme of work addressing IWT in Liberia and its neighbouring countries. The Liberia programme sits at the heart of our work in West Africa and provides the hub from which this project is being implemented. This is a truly exciting time to be joining FFI Africa programme and to be part of the expanding FFI Wildlife Trade Initiative, contributing to the development of a regional programme strengthening and expanding our response to unsustainable wildlife trade in the region.

You will have a strong track record in tackling Illegal Wildlife Trade or related issues, project management and capacity building. Strong leadership and people management skills are essential to the role to ensure a professional and motivated team that delivers effectively against project aims, objectives and timelines.

You will be skilled in providing strategic advice and technical input to the design, development, implementation, evaluation and reporting for IWT projects, and have advanced skills in the implementation of relevant responses to IWT, including the development and delivery of training materials and courses to strengthen law enforcement and a high proficiency in the tools used in the collation and management of IWT data. The role also requires a skilled and credible communicator, who is confident in developing and managing relationships with partner organisations and relevant stakeholders, in particular, government agencies.

In return, the role offers the opportunity to work within an international, impactful and ground-breaking organisation, at the forefront of global conservation.
