We are seeking qualified candidates to join FFI’s Caribbean team and contribute to the development and management of a programme focused on biodiversity conservation and promoting sustainable livelihoods in the face of climate change.
You will lead an island-wide sustainable development project, including supporting the management of threatened ecosystems and the development of new livelihood opportunities with the local community, while liaising with both local and national government. You will support the delivery of capacity building activities for local groups, with a primary focus on integrating livelihoods with the conservation of endangered biodiversity and ecosystem services.
The post would be ideal for someone with experience in the development of sustainable livelihoods and a sound understanding of marine or terrestrial ecology and/or climate change. You will use your technical skills and practical experience to develop and deliver solutions to create sustainable income opportunities for island residents while also supporting the conservation of marine and terrestrial ecosystems. You will have excellent project management skills, and experience in community engagement, participatory approaches, capacity building, and sustainable livelihood initiatives.
A strong team player, you will enjoy working in a dynamic team environment where creative approaches and thinking are being brought to deliver projects.

In return, the role offers the opportunity to work within a major organisation at the forefront of global conservation.
