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 qualified candidate for the position of Senior REDD+ Programme Manager. You will play a pivotal role in the design and implementation of Liberia’s pioneer REDD+ project, and will lead FFI’s work on climate policy engagement, and development of collaborations with bilateral and multi-lateral REDD+ finance mechanisms.
You will have strong technical skills in relevant aspects of REDD+ design and implementation at project and jurisdictional levels, and have a passion for developing innovative and sustainable conservation efforts that realise benefits for wildlife and for local people. You will have a strong proven track record in the design and implementation of REDD+ initiatives, direct experience of supporting the development of national policies relevant to REDD+ in one or more tropical forest countries, and of engaging with bi-lateral and multi-lateral initiatives and institutions, such as the Green Climate Fund. Strong leadership, technical and management skills are essential to the role.
This position is based in FFI’s head office in Cambridge, UK, with regular international travel to Liberia and elsewhere as required. In return, the role offers the opportunity to work within a ground-breaking and entrepreneurial organisation, at the forefront of global conservation.
