Project Assistant, Fundação Príncipe, São Tomé & Príncipe

FFI and FP are working with a consortium of partners to strengthen the conservation of the unique marine biodiversity of São Tomé & Príncipe. Funded by the Blue Action Fund, Rainforest Trust and Arcadia, a charitable trust of Peter Baldwin and Lisbet Rausing, the project’s overall goal is to establish a network of marine protected areas across São Tomé & Príncipe using a co-management approach. We are seeking qualified candidates to join the small Fundação Príncipe team to support the delivery of this exciting and ambitious project. Employed directly by FFI and under secondment to FP, you will be based on the island of Príncipe.

You will contribute to island-wide conservation activity with a particular focus on marine protected area establishment and community co-management. The role will support the delivery of the project through provision of administrative, communications and technical support, including survey design and data management. The post would be ideal for someone with excellent organisational and communications skills and experience in terrestrial or marine ecology and biodiversity conservation linked to sustainable livelihoods initiatives.

A collaborative team player, you will enjoy the challenges of working in a dynamic team located in a remote environment, where teamwork, resilience and creative approaches and thinking are required to deliver project activities. A Bachelor’s degree or equivalent level qualification in a relevant discipline and some experience in a related role and in working in remote and challenging environments are expected. In return, the role offers the opportunity to work within two ground breaking and entrepreneurial organisations, at the forefront of marine conservation.
