Location: Fauna & Flora International Cambridge. Current policy offers partial remote working within the UK

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.

We are offering a unique opportunity to work as part of a team that supports FFI’s Halcyon Land & Sea (Halcyon) portfolio, focusing on collating and interpreting the impact of our work and actively disseminating learning from across the portfolio to a wide but targeted audience. Your focus will be on identifying pertinent experiences and lessons useful to others in the sector (internal and external to FFI’s network), and sharing them (or supporting project or partner teams to share them) through a variety of outreach channels. To do this you will engage with Halcyon funded project teams and partners, drawing on their evidence and experience and relating this to wider literature and case studies from across the conservation community. You will also support Halcyon funded project teams and partners to develop or deliver effective mechanisms for collecting evidence and demonstrating progress towards conservation impact, underpinned by theory-based approaches. You will also play an important role as part of the Halcyon team in supporting internal grant making and reporting processes.

You will have strong interdisciplinary analytical skills, the ability to distil complex information into accessible formats, proven understanding of conservation project design, monitoring and evaluation, experience of the realities of conservation project delivery in less developed country contexts, and the ability to work constructively with a range of stakeholders, specifically with in-country teams and partners in a range of cultural contexts. You will also have very strong written and verbal communication skills and experience, including the ability to target information appropriately for different audiences through a variety of channels, from scientific to popular. You will have experience in supporting and facilitating others to deliver or co-deliver work, building capacity and skills where they are needed.

In return, the role offers the opportunity to work within a ground-breaking and entrepreneurial organisation, at the forefront of global conservation, allowing you to apply your skills and expertise where appropriate. In addition, FFI offers a generous pension contribution, attractive annual leave allowance and life insurance. Our offices are located in The David Attenborough Building in central Cambridge, just a few minutes’ walk from glorious historic buildings and museums, the picturesque River Cam, the central market and shopping centre, and a host of cafés and restaurants.
