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 operate primarily in developing countries where there is little capacity to conserve endangered and threatened habitats and species. We have become a trusted entity in the world of conservation. Today FFI is active in over 40 countries.

FFI has been working with the private sector for some 15 years. We believe engaging with the private sector is fundamental to FFI’s ability to achieve our conservation objectives. Our aspiration is to create an environment where business has a net positive impact on biodiversity.

A broad understanding of biodiversity conservation issues in an international context is essential and international experience in a paid or voluntary role and experience in working with an NGO and or corporate on environmental issues would be advantageous.
