Asistente de proyecto en conservación (JCR - IUCN)

Project Assistant at JRC (EC) – Biodiversity and Protected Areas Management project

The Directorate for Sustainable Resources, 'Knowledge for Sustainable Development and Food Security' Unit has a vacancy for a Project Assistant for the BIOPAMA (Biodiversity and Protected Areas Management) project. BIOPAMA Phase 2 (2017-2023) is an EU-ACP programme, implemented by JRC together with the International Union of Conservation of Nature (IUCN), financed by the 11th European Development Fund of the European Union. JRC work focuses on developing state-of-the-art information platforms and knowledge products, supporting better decision making in protected areas so that they can contribute not only to wildlife conservation, but also to sustainable livelihoods across the 79 ACP (African, Caribbean, Pacific) countries.

Working with the JRC BIOPAMA coordinator, the Project Assistant will:  Maintain project documentation including a clear and well-structured digital project file in line with JRC Quality Management guidelines and procedures.  Support the operational work of the project, including meeting organisation, travel planning, calendar / project milestone management and preparation of calls for tender, in close consultation with the Unit secretariat.  Track progress of deliverables, budgets, procurements and work performed by contractors.  Contribute to project communications, reporting and updating of project website and intranet, and assist in preparing presentations.  Liaise with external project partners. Strong inter-personal skills, combining flexibility with discipline, are a must. The majority of the work is based at JRC Ispra, but some travel, including to countries considered "at-risk", may be necessary. Given the global nature of the project, occasional evening work may be required, in particular to join the monthly conference call with our regional partners.
