FFI is committed to working alongside local partner organisations around the world, to empower them to achieve their own conservation goals. We aim to support partner organisations over the long term, adapting the support we give to meet their changing needs. FFI is seeking an experienced Partnerships Finance Manager to lead on supporting FFI’s key priority partners in strengthening their financial management, to develop methods to assess current financial capacity, and to provide training and mentoring in financial management best practice for those priority partners.
