Senior Technical Specialist, Extractives & Development Infrastructure

Salary: Circa £48,000 Per annum

Start Date: As soon as possible

Contract Type: Permanent

Location: Fauna & Flora International, Cambridge, UK (with options for flexible working conditions.)

We are seeking a highly motivated, experienced and skilled individual to provide technical and policy leadership to EDI work programmes across FFI’s portfolio. This role requires you to engage with private sector actions, provide insights to policy makers and support funding efforts, whilst working to mainstream corporate delivery on this topic by companies and the investment sector alike in order to achieve nature-positive results. Your position will also influence and lead on FFI’s engagement with environmental and social safeguards, the development and governance of regulations and voluntary standards and other Communities of Practice and business and biodiversity forums.

You will have experience in managing natural capital, nature based or natural climate solutions in partnership with the corporate or financial sector. Our preferred candidate has previously implemented nature-positive solutions to meet environmental and social safeguards developed by bilateral and institutional investors and can discuss at length their experiences of the benefits and limitations of these.  You will have experience in working with a network of international experts and practitioners and a strong record of leading teams and initiatives in complex, fast-paced, and fluid environments and be able to communicate across a range of multi-stakeholder settings; from communities to senior-level representatives of government, business, and finance. You will share FFI’s conservation objectives, and should be comfortable working in an international NGO and managing a matrix-like structure.  With a track record in innovative project development, you will be expected to generate opportunities and new projects, including securing funds from a broad spectrum of funding sources, to achieve nature positive outcomes, as well as expand and grow FFI’s influence.

The role will require international travel to meet project objectives when required.  As a senior member of the team, you will be expected to become involved in all aspects of FFI conservation programmes and to encourage the use of global best practices and objectives led frameworks to ensure the integration of biodiversity and ecosystem services aspects into all aspects of our work in these sectors.

In return, the role offers the opportunity to work within an international, impactful and ground-breaking organisation, at the forefront of global conservation. In parallel with the terms of reference FFI encourages staff to pursue their conservation interests and goals; you will be able to grow and expand your impact to leave a lasting conservation legacy.  In addition, FFI offers a generous pension contribution, attractive annual leave allowance and life insurance. Our offices are located 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.
