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 support the effective delivery and future development of our marine plastics work. The Programme Officer, Marine Plastics, will play an important role within the Conservation Science and Design team, providing technical input and support for all aspects of our marine plastics work.

The post holder will work under the supervision of the Senior Programme Manager, Marine Plastics, to progress work to change practice in relation to microplastics, and to research and develop specific new work streams on marine plastics. We are looking for a dynamic team player with an interest in marine conservation and the ability to work constructively with a range of stakeholders, including the corporate sector.

You will have strong research and analytical skills combined with the ability to present convincing arguments. You will be able to communicate with confidence and credibility to a range of audiences, and have experience in building and maintaining positive organisational and external stakeholder relationships. You will also be willing to pitch in with more administrative elements of work, as required.

In return, the role offers the opportunity to work within a ground-breaking and entrepreneurial organisation, at the forefront of global conservation, with opportunity 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.
