ZSL’s Professionalising Conservation project is looking for Consultant Subject Matter Experts (SMEs) to provide expertise in the development of content for the production of new online and offline training materials for protected area practitioners all over the world. SMEs are invited to identify their topic of expertise from the Professionalising Conservation content framework (designed to align with both the IUCN Global Register of Competencies for Protected Area practitioners, and the IUCN Green List of Protected and Conserved Areas), for which they will design a module of content for an online course.

SME’s will need to submit a proposal outlining their experience in delivering training (including online if applicable); expertise in their topic/module of choice from the framework detailed on pages 9-11 of the RFP; a proposed cost to complete on all deliverables, and a time estimate for producing content. We approximate a 6 month part-time contract to complete on all deliverables.

This is an open call Request for Proposals and successful candidates will be invited to interview as they apply.
