Founded in 1903, Fauna & Flora International (FFI) is the world’s longest-established international conservation organisation. Our vision is to create a sustainable future for the planet where biodiversity is conserved by the people living closest to it. We 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. We have become a trusted entity in the world of conservation. Today FFI is active in over 40 countries.

FFI wishes to recruit a Project Coordinator for its Integrated Species, Livelihoods and Cultural Values Project within its Cambodia Country Programme to ensure that the Cultural and Economic Incentives for Endangered Species Conservation Project, funded by the Darwin Initiative and under the Flagship Species Programme, meets its impact target. This project aims to ensure that Cambodia’s indigenous Khmer Daeum achieve a higher social status and living standards and contribute effectively  to the protection and recovery of Cambodia’s Siamese crocodile and Asian elephant populations. The project represents efforts to align FFI’s long-running endangered species-focused activities in the Cardamom Mountains with some of the community-focused approaches it has piloted elsewhere, to create an integrated, successful approach to both species and forest conservation and sustainable livelihoods development. As the Flagship Species Programme is well established and staffed, this role requires an individual with knowledge of and experience in community engagement and sustainable agricultural livelihoods development.

The post-holder will work closely with the Flagship Species Manager (FFI Cambodia Programme) to coordinate and manage day-to-day project implementation in close collaboration with all project staff, partner organisations and stakeholders. There will be a heavy emphasis on effective Monitoring and Evaluation (M&E) at the project level and liaising with all project partners and stakeholders to achieve the project deliverables. As well as requiring strong monitoring and evaluation experience, the post-holder will be responsible for project development and fundraising efforts to ensure that the project design can be fully executed, and will contribute heavily to wider FFI Cambodia programme planning and fundraising efforts on relevant topics and in relevant geographies.
