Communications Officer (Project Support)
Founded in 1903, Fauna & Flora International (FFI) is the world’s longest established international conservation organisation. Our vision is to create a sustainable future for the planet where biodiversity is conserved by the people living closest to it. We aim to do this through the conservation of threatened species and ecosystems worldwide, choosing solutions that are sustainable, based on sound science and take account of human needs. We have become a trusted entity in the world of conservation. Today FFI is active in over 40 countries. This is an exciting time to work in communications at FFI, with the conservation sector increasingly recognising that strong communications will be needed if we are to successfully overcome the manifold and varied threats to our planet. Our team is growing in response to this need, and we are seeking a Communications Officer (Project Support) to help us improve the quality of FFI’s communications across our global portfolio. This will be a challenging and exciting role, with the chance to use your skills to make a real difference to FFI as we strive to protect threatened species and habitats around the world. The primary focus of this role is to support and guide colleagues to ensure that their communications activities are well thought through and of a high standard. The role is less focused on developing creative materials, although this may be required from time to time. The role will be well suited to a highly organised individual with excellent people skills who is passionate about the role that communications plays in modern-day conservation and who enjoys mentoring and supporting colleagues. You will enjoy working in a dynamic and fast-paced environment, where the ability to respond swiftly to changing organisational and team needs is paramount. In return, we offer the opportunity to work for a ground-breaking organisation at the forefront of global conservation, with opportunity for international travel, generous pension contribution, attractive annual leave allowance, life insurance and salary exchange schemes, including Childcare Vouchers and Cycle to Work Scheme. Our offices are located in The David Attenborough Building in central Cambridge, just a few minutes’ walk from glorious historic buildings and museums, the picturesque River Cam, the central market and shopping centre, and a host of cafés and restaurants.
The closing date for applications is Sunday, 8 July 2018.
