Fauna & Flora saves species from extinction and habitats from destruction, while improving the livelihoods of local people. Our guiding principles are to work with and alongside local partnerships, act as a catalyst for change, make conservation relevant, and base decisions on sound science. Founded in 1903, Fauna & Flora is the world’s longest established international conservation body; our conservation work, and impact, spans the globe.

Fauna & Flora has been involved in wildlife conservation and management in Mozambique for many years, and took on management of the Niassa Game Reserve with SGDRN in the late 1990s. Alongside continued support to Niassa through various partnerships, and specifically through work in Chuilexi Conservancy, a vast 7,500Km2 block in the East of the Reserve, Fauna & Flora’s portfolio within Mozambique also includes direct support to Chimanimani National Park (CNP) and a nascent marine programme.

Fauna & Flora is seeking an experienced conservation professional to fulfil the role of Landscape Manager, Chimanimani assuming responsibility for the implementation and development of FFI’s work in the Chimanimani National Park (CNP) in Mozambique.

The successful candidate will have an excellent proven track record in supporting protected area management, ideally co-management and development models working with community members, in Africa. They will be skilled in providing strategic advice and technical input to the design, development, implementation, evaluation and reporting for projects and will have excellent project, grant and financial management skills, including experience managing large statutory funds.

Highly effective 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. The role also requires a skilled and credible communicator, who is confident in developing and managing relationships with partner organisations and relevant stakeholders, from local communities and community-based organisations to funders.

The successful candidate will have a substantial proven track record in project management, fundraising and capacity building and be able to demonstrate an understanding of the statutory and regulatory frameworks within which Fauna & Flora operates in Southern Africa, as well as a commitment to organisational and legal compliance.

The closing date for applications is 5 October 2023.
