Salary: £18,525 per annum

Start Date: 1 September 2022

Contract Type: Three months

Location: The current policy offers partial remote working within the UK. We ask the intern to be at least one day per week at Fauna & Flora International’s office in Cambridge, 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.

In recent years, conservation programmes have increasingly incorporated social processes to deliver conservation outcomes. It is becoming more common to see interventions that address social issues and livelihoods as a strategy to reduce threats to nature and achieve environmental goals. Although donors recognise the merits of combining social and environmental agendas, funding opportunities remain focused on one sector or another. In FFI’s Trusts & Foundations team, we would like to understand the overlaps that exist between conservation and development programmes and incorporate this learning into our fundraising strategy to implement a more coherent approach to the needs of these two sectors.

This internship will help the Trusts & Foundations team identify the challenges and opportunities of engaging with donors that invest in social impact interventions (development sector) from the perspective of the conservation sector; with learning opportunities for the intern that include developing general skills in trusts and foundations fundraising, and experience of working directly for a large international conservation organisation.
