Description

This is a fixed term contract with a start date of 1 February 2018 and an end date of 31 December 2019, with the potential to extend to 31 October 2020 subject to business need and funding availability.

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 an experienced biodiversity conservation professional to fulfil the role of Technical Specialist (Species Conservation), Liberia, assuming responsibility for the implementation and management of a national programme for Pygmy Hippo research and conservation in Liberia, and for the oversight of a programme of biodiversity survey and biomonitoring initiatives in Sapo National Park.

You will have a strong track record in biodiversity research, 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 projects, and have advanced skills in biodiversity quantitative and qualitative data collection and data analysis. The role also requires a skilled and credible communicator, who is confident in developing and managing relationships with partner organisations and relevant stakeholders, including donors and funders.

This position will be based at FFI’s office in Monrovia, Liberia, with regular domestic travel to project sites, coordinating field teams as needed. International travel to FFI’s head office in Cambridge, UK may be required. In return, we offer the opportunity to work for a ground-breaking organisation at the forefront of global conservation.

Final appointment will be subject to final confirmation of funding for the position.
