Fauna & Flora strives to ensure that our conservation goals are achieved in ways that respect human rights and contribute to human well-being and social equity. An opportunity has arisen to join the Asia-Pacific regional team to ensure that good practice in social equity, rights-based approaches, good governance and social safeguards is effectively integrated and implemented into projects. This role will support programmes in Myanmar, Cambodia, Vietnam and Indonesia and be directly linked to the Social Equity and Rights team within the SAGE programme.

You will have advanced technical skills and experience in the development, management, implementation and M&E of social equity, good governance and rights-based approaches in a conservation context. A team player also able to work on your own initiative, you will have strong interpersonal and communication skills, including the ability to liaise across teams and cultures. You will enjoy applying your critical thinking to complex issues and explaining these in plain and accessible language. In addition to fluency in written and spoken English, skills in relevant South East Asian languages are also desirable.

You will have excellent facilitation, training and coaching skills, ideally with experience in developing and applying blended learning materials and methods. The ability to plan, organise and prioritise workloads to meet deadlines will be a key attribute.

You will hold a relevant degree or equivalent qualification or experience in international conservation, natural resource management or similar field. You will have knowledge of international human rights standards and rights-based approaches as they apply to conservation, and ideally some knowledge and experience of Social Management Systems.

You will be passionate about supporting others to develop their knowledge and skills while being open to learning and able to quickly pick up new skills. You will have experience of working in a cross-cultural environment and experience in applying your skills to a conservation, rural livelihoods or natural resource management context in less developed countries.

You will be joining Fauna & Flora at an exciting time as we seek to improve our ability to design, implement, monitor and evaluate initiatives that have positive impacts on biodiversity while at the same time respecting the rights of local communities and contributing to human well-being and social equity.
