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.

Working closely with country teams and partners, the Wildlife Trade team provides technical input and direct support to project design, fundraising, implementation and impact monitoring. The team also proactively builds the technical capacity and skills within FFI and partners, supporting them to engage with emerging issues, ensure FFI is represented in relevant Wildlife trade-related forums, and maximise opportunities of relevance to wildlife trade for FFI and its partner network. In addition, the team also works collaboratively to advance smart, inter-disciplinary approaches to wildlife crime and influence decision-making amongst relevant global stakeholders. This includes producing written guidance and training materials, policy briefs and external communications, and facilitating the analysis, documentation and sharing of good practice, research and lessons learned between FFI project teams, the wider conservation sector, donors and policymakers.

We are seeking a team player with strong interpersonal skills and relevant international experience for the position of ‘Technical Specialist, Wildlife Trade’. Sound technical knowledge and experience of addressing illegal wildlife trade is a pre-requisite. In addition, you will be a highly collaborative and strategic thinker with proven experience in project design, multi-stakeholder coordination, facilitation and an ability to manage a diverse workload and multiple deadlines. You will also be a credible communicator, who is confident in developing and managing relationships with FFI staff, partner organisations and donors across a broad international diaspora. A good understanding of the need for effective information-sharing, collaboration and learning for conservation is also key, as is a shared commitment to FFI’s mission and values.
