WWF - Jobs at WWF

Job Overview

Decarbonising our economies quickly enough to limit climatic disruptions to acceptable levels, and adapting to the unavoidable impacts, continues to be among the most complex and difficult challenges humanity has ever faced. The science is clear - failure to hold global temperature increase to no more than 1.5°C and to adapt to the changing climate will put all of WWF's conservation objectives, and the well-being and survival of many species, including humans, in danger. Scaled-up global efforts that ensure an emissions peak before 2020 and sharp reductions thereafter, as well as dramatically scaled-up adaptation efforts, are essential to avoid this danger. 

WWF has a long and rich history of private sector engagement on sustainability issues and the private sector remains a critical driver for WWFs "Climate and Energy Practice" outcomes. Climate Savers (CS) is WWF's climate partnership programme that seeks to work together with businesses to shift towards a low-carbon economy. The programme is intended to inspire a change in thinking in the business sector by showcasing best-practice corporate leadership in climate change action. Participating companies are better placed to avoid carbon-related risks and seize opportunities to propel their long-term business strategies.

The Climate Savers manager, together with WWFs Climate Business Hub, the Climate & Energy Practice, and the WWF National Offices (NO's), will be coordinating the work with the current companies and NO's whilst determining the future role and place of the programme.  

Main duties and responsibilities

* Develop and implement CS strategy together with current and interested CS offices, and CBH 
* Securing funds and capacity for the programme in line with the WWF National Offices 
* Facilitating the integration of the programme within the new CBH structure
* Supporting NO's in the development / renewal of CS partnerships 
* Supporting interested NO's in starting up a national CS programme (company engagement strategy) 
* Providing direct NO support, including support for NO company engagement
* Coordinating the Climate Savers international event with the WWF host office 
* Promoting Climate Savers with external stakeholders

Required Qualifications

* A minimum of 5 years of experience in climate business engagement on a strategic level.
* At least three years of experience working with climate programmes at the company, project or product level or working within non-governmental organizations with climate and business programmes.
* A technical and/or business advanced university degree in a relevant discipline.
* EU citizen
* A clear understanding of climate science, climate economics, renewable energy and the business drivers and levers for climate change mitigation at the corporate level.
* Excellent communication, negotiation and diplomacy skills.
* Strong project management and interpersonal skills.
* Excellent command of English; other languages are an asset, particularly Spanish, French, German, Portuguese, Mandarin Chinese.

In the Global Tiger Recovery Program 2010-2022, Cambodia set a goal to bring back tigers to their former range, noting that a translocation and reintroduction program may be needed to achieve this goal. The Cambodia Tiger Action Plan identified Srepok Wildlife Sanctuary (SWS) as a suitable source site for the reintroduction of tigers. WWF-Cambodia has been supporting conservation activities in this site since 2005, and in 2007, WWF commissioned a study to examine the feasibility of a restoration program that involves reintroduction if tigers are entirely extirpated or reinforcement if a few tigers still inhabit the area. The recent review of the feasibility study confirmed tiger reintroduction program in SWS is possible both ecologically and technically but extensive preparation is needed over the next few years, including establishing a strong on-the-ground law enforcement system and tiger's prey recovery that will be fundamental to success. With technical support from WWF, the Cambodia government has prepared a Tiger Reintroduction Plan that outlines the details of the program and budget. WWF has strongly committed to support this tiger reintroduction program in Eastern Plains Landscape (EPL), a transboundary landscape between Cambodia and Vietnam.

- Master's degree or equivalent experience in wildlife conservation, protected area, wildlife science, natural resources management, environmental studies or in relevant fields. 
- Proven experience in leading complex, cross-boundary programs and project development and management.
- At least 7-10 years of practical experience in managing complex programs related to transboundary wildlife conservation (tiger particular), protected areas management, and impact monitoring systems. A substantial part of this experience should have been in an organisation specializing in conservation.
- Proven experience in complex project design, development and fundraising.
