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 and FP are working with a consortium of partners to strengthen the conservation of the unique marine biodiversity of São Tomé & Príncipe. Funded by the Blue Action Fund and Arcadia, a charitable trust of Peter Baldwin and Lisbet Rausing, the project’s overall goal is to establish a network of marine protected areas across São Tomé & Príncipe using a co-management approach. We are seeking qualified candidates to join the small Fundação Príncipe team to support the delivery of this exciting and ambitious project. Employed directly by FFI and under secondment to FP, you will be based on the island of Príncipe.

You will contribute to island-wide conservation activity with a particular focus on protected area establishment and community co-management. The role will support the delivery of the project through provision of administrative, communications and technical support, including survey design and data management. The post would be ideal for someone with excellent organisational and communications skills and experience in terrestrial or marine ecology and biodiversity conservation linked to sustainable livelihoods initiatives.
