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 seeking a highly motivated, skilled and experienced individual to provide technical, management and coordination expertise to our work programmes and initiatives within the extractives and development infrastructure sectors across our portfolio. You will work closely with the Regional Directors, other Conservation Partnerships Programmes and the Director, Extractives and Development Infrastructure, working to integrate biodiversity management at a strategic and operational level in both marine and terrestrial environments. You will contribute to the development of new partnerships and programmes of work, working on the characterisation and management of biodiversity across global operations and integrating and embedding biodiversity across partner companies.

You will be experienced in the development and implementation of a full spectrum of biodiversity and ecosystem services management, including the application of environmental impact assessment, environmental and social safeguards, biodiversity risk assessments, developing Biodiversity Action Plans, implementing the mitigation hierarchy, and conceptualising and planning biodiversity offsets. Your position will also support FFI’s engagement with sectoral initiatives such as IPIECA, ICMM, Communities of Practice and business and biodiversity forums.

This role will involve collaboration and coordination with a range of FFI and extractive and development infrastructure sector partnership staff and will require some international travel to meet project objectives and requirements. As a senior member of the team, you will be expected to become involved in all aspects of FFI conservation programmes and to encourage the use of global best practices to ensure the integration of biodiversity and ecosystem services aspects into all aspects of our work in these sectors.
