Working closely with local partners, FFI’s Africa Programme currently operates in 12 countries in West, Central, East and Southern Africa, and is implementing a range of projects focused on both terrestrial and marine species and habitat conservation, biodiversity planning, protected area management, institutional development and capacity building, sustainable use and community-focused wildlife management initiatives.

To achieve its mission in Africa, FFI uses different approaches to work with and alongside local partners to focus on the sustainable use and management of natural resources as a means to effective conservation in the long-term. In all its projects in Africa, FFI seeks to:
– Build and support local partnerships with African conservation and community development organisations

Liberia is home to large remaining intact sections of Upper Guinean Forest rich in endemic and endangered species not found elsewhere. These forests are at risk from extreme and immediate threats, such as slash-and-burn agricultural expansion, mining and poaching. Recently, following years of civil conflict, communities that were returning to their ancestral lands have been faced with further challenges to their livelihoods presented by the biggest outbreak of Ebola HV to date.

In 2006, the Liberian Government made a declaration to put aside 30% of its forest for a protected area network (PAN). To date, less than 4% of the PAN has been officially gazetted to formal protected status.

FFI’s Liberia programme has a focus on building capacity at multiple levels within Liberia to enable long-term management of natural resources, supports mechanisms for community-based natural resource management, works through local partners, with industry and engaging with relevant international, regional and national stakeholders including local communities, non-governmental organisations, civil society organisations, local government and central government agencies.

FFI is seeking a highly experienced conservation professional to fulfil the role of Programme Manager, assuming responsibility for the operational management, implementation and development of FFI’s conservation strategy and programme of projects in Liberia.

The successful candidate will have with a strong proven track record in operational, project, grant and financial management at a similar level and be skilled in providing strategic advice and technical input to the design, development, implementation and evaluation of projects.

The Americas & Caribbean Programme seeks to bring FFI expertise, innovative approaches and resources to bear on landscape, site and species conservation and the associated challenges of sustainable development, especially for those local people and stakeholders who depend on the natural ecosystem for their livelihoods. We work both at site level and on national policies.

Target habitats and species include coastal and marine habitats in the eastern tropical Pacific and Caribbean, dry forest, Chocó rainforest and endangered island endemics of the Caribbean.

You will have field experience in Latin America or the Caribbean and have the personal qualities and skills necessary to collaborate effectively with governments, non-governmental partners and a variety of stakeholders.
