We are seeking remote course content writers, assessors and tutors in the subject area of UK Conservation Policy & Advocacy.

A small tweak to some legislation can make an enormous, global difference for wildlife conservation efforts, and this where many people’s passion lies. Building sound policies, and lobbying for them to be implemented and enforced is the job of a growing band of conservation policy and advocacy professionals.

Typical job titles include Policy and Advocacy Officer, Policy Advisor, Campaigns and Policy Assistant and they cover the following duties:

  • Identifying and develop key policy issues for the conservation organisations.
  • Drafting position papers, policy briefings and reports and communicate results.
  • Participating in related policy fora.

We’re seeking experienced professionals working in this area to develop a UK course syllabus and associated materials which outline the key topics, and help people take a solid first step towards a fulfilling career in this area.

Applicants must be experienced and qualified in the topic, and assessors must hold an assessors/ teaching qualification. An IQA qualification would be an advantage.

We operate a completely flexible remote working model. Working on a self-employed Contract for Services basis, the role initially involves course writing. Once live, you’ll have the opportunity to also be involved and tutor students, assess work remotely via our online training portal.

You will be responsible for organising and managing your own workload to a deadline whilst maintaining the highest level of standards.

Each of our subject areas is faculty driven and whilst self-employed you will have direct contact with a Head of Faculty to support with the learner caseload allocations.

This is an exciting opportunity to be part of our national tutor team and the learndirect brand, so if you think you can make a difference for our students then please apply by submitting your CV to lucycox@animalcoursesdirect.co.uk
