Job Opportunity: Programme Manager with Fauna & Flora International

Founded in 1903, Fauna & Flora International (FFI) is the world’s longest established international conservation organisation.

Their vision is to create a sustainable future for the planet where biodiversity is conserved by the people living closest to it. They aim to do this through the conservation of threatened species and ecosystems worldwide, choosing solutions that are sustainable, based on sound science and take account of human needs. FFI have become a trusted entity in the world of conservation. Today they are active in over 40 countries.


FFI is seeking a Programme Manager to lead a pioneering project to scale-up collaborative marine conservation and sustainable fisheries management across coastal Cambodia. The Programme Manager will oversee a portfolio of seascape-level and species-focused interventions within the Coastal & Marine Conservation Programme as part of FFI’s Cambodia Programme. The role will have responsibility for the delivery of a $4.6 million coastal-wide Blue Action Fund funded project to strengthen MPAs, fisheries governance and coastal community livelihoods in Cambodia.

This position presents a unique opportunity to work with, and develop the capacity of, the government, local NGOs and local coastal communities of Cambodia whilst improving the conservation of the country’s marine biodiversity. You will be responsible for overall leadership and project coordination, including liaison with partner organisations to ensure both project efficacy and legacy beyond the current funding. You will have an advanced degree in marine science, or equivalent experience, and a minimum five years’ experience working on field-based conservation projects, ideally in Southeast Asia. A dynamic team player, excellent communicator and leader, you will have a strong background in ecological research and project management (preferably in a marine conservation context).

This opportunity will be based in FFI’s office in Phnom Penh, Cambodia and will involve close working relationships with the FFI Cambodia Programme team, FFI teams in the UK, and partner organisations.

The successful candidate will play a critical role in advancing the protection of marine biodiversity and strengthening the resilience of coastal ecosystems and communities in Cambodia. The role offers the opportunity to hold a key leadership position within a diverse and committed team, working within an entrepreneurial international organisation at the forefront of global conservation.
