We are looking for a highly motivated and technically experienced Associate Programme Officer to support the development and management of projects relating to WCMC’s flagship data products – notably the World Database on Protected Areas, Protected Planet, and Ocean+. Supporting the team, you will ensure that projects are managed and delivered to the highest level of quality, and on time and budget.

You will hold a degree in biodiversity informatics, biological sciences, geography, ecology, environmental sciences, economics, social sciences or a related discipline and will possess strong technical and analytical skills. You will also have great organisational, communications and planning skills. Commitment to producing high quality outputs is also an essential requirement.

Please note that this is not a UN post and we can only accept applications from those eligible to work in the UK.

WCMC is a UK charity that promotes for public benefit the conservation, protection, enhancement and support of nature and natural resources worldwide. We do this by collecting, storing, processing, analysing, interpreting and sharing data that increase our knowledge and understanding of biodiversity and the conservation of nature. Good data are the foundation of informed decision-making and we work with many partners to help them develop their knowledge and capacity to make good decisions. We collaborate with the United Nations Environment within the UN Environment World Conservation Monitoring Centre (UNEP-WCMC).
