Careers

Working to save nature, together

Fauna & Flora’s purpose is to protect the diversity of life on Earth, for the survival of the planet and its people. We are facing a biodiversity crisis like never before, and protecting and restoring our natural world is an urgent and huge task – but it’s not impossible.

We are looking for passionate and committed individuals to support us in our mission.

What we offer as an employer

 

Our people, who are located around the world, take on a wide range of roles and responsibilities to help us to save nature, together.

Some support projects on the ground, working hands-on with our partners to implement nature-saving strategies. Others provide technical and operational expertise from our regional offices, including our UK headquarters in Cambridge.

From finance to fundraising. Conservation science to communications. Global policy to corporate sustainability. Every role at every level is essential to our species-saving work. Every person can make a difference.

To ensure our people can do their best work, it’s crucial we provide them with the best support. As such, we create a work environment where everyone is valued and respected and offer a wide range of employee benefits.

If you’re looking for a career where you can make a real difference for nature and the planet, while working with colleagues who are passionate, dynamic and committed, please take a look at our latest job vacancies.

Current opportunities

For nearly 20 years I have been working with Fauna & Flora’s Programme in Kyrgyzstan to protect the environment in a harmonious way that is consistent with traditional cultural respect for nature. We work with all stakeholders - from nomadic herding communities to government policy makers trying to find solutions that work for both nature and local communities. It has been an extremely rewarding experience to be part of great efforts addressing the vast number of challenges facing Kyrgyzstan’s amazing wildlife.

Career development

At Fauna & Flora, you will have many opportunities to grow and develop professionally, whether that’s through on-the-job training and peer-to-peer knowledge exchange, or formal training events.

We have an in-house team dedicated to supporting colleagues with their career development, helping them to acquire the skills and knowledge needed for continued progress. As a relatively small and agile organisation, we also offer ample opportunities to seize new experiences and explore different pathways.

Our location

Our UK headquarters are located in the David Attenborough Building, in the centre of historical Cambridge. As well as having a prime location, our eco-building features a four-storey living ‘green wall’, rooftop terraces, a library, a lecture theatre and a spacious common room where colleagues can meet and relax.

The David Attenborough Building is home to the Cambridge Conservation Initiative, an exciting partnership between the University of Cambridge and the leading biodiversity conservation organisations (including Fauna & Flora) clustered in Cambridge.

By bringing so many different people and disciplines together, the Cambridge Conservation Initiative allows us to harness the individual skills and networks of a rich and varied group, as we work together towards a common goal.
