Fauna & Flora and FP are working with a consortium of partners to strengthen the conservation of the unique marine biodiversity of São Tomé & Príncipe. Funded by the Blue Action Fund, Rainforest Trust and Oceans 5, the project’s overall goal is to establish a network of Marine Protected Areas (MPAs) across São Tomé & Príncipe using a co-management approach.

You will contribute to island-wide conservation activity with a particular focus on MPA establishment and community co-management. The role will support the delivery of the project through provision of administrative and technical support, while also enabling the FP team to further develop their skills and knowledge in marine conservation. The post would be ideal for someone with excellent organisational and communications skills and experience in marine ecology and biodiversity conservation.

A Bachelor’s degree or equivalent level qualification in a relevant discipline and experience working in remote and challenging environments are expected. In return, the role offers the opportunity to work in an exciting and complex seascape within two ground breaking and entrepreneurial organisations who are at the forefront of marine conservation.
