EMPLOYMENT: FFI Socio-economic Adviser, Conservation, Livelihoods & Governance
Fauna & Flora International (FFI) is the world’s longest-established international conservation organisation. FFI is now seeking a Socio-economic Adviser to support an expanding portfolio of projects in the Asia-Pacific region (principally Vietnam, Cambodia, Indonesia and the Philippines). The postholder will work closely with project/programme teams to ensure that the socio-economic and community aspects of our conservation projects are implemented in accordance with international good practice. In particular, this will include compliance with relevant standards, such as the Climate, Community and Biodiversity (CCB) standards for Reduced Emissions from Deforestation and Degradation (REDD+) projects.
The post will involve both the capacity-building of in-country teams and facilitation of shared learning within the region and more widely within FFI and in external fora. With a postgraduate degree in a relevant subject, you will have extensive social science skills, particularly in the design and implementation of participatory, gendered socio-economic analysis, monitoring and evaluation (M&E). You will be experienced in taking a facilitative approach to supporting colleagues from a wide range of different technical and cultural backgrounds. Your organisational skills will enable you to manage a complex workload, requiring prioritisation and efficient project planning, budgeting, implementation, and reporting. Your inter-personal skills will ensure that you are able to communicate and collaborate effectively with country programme staff and partner organisations, including governments, NGOs, community groups and businesses.
Deadline: April 9, 2012
