Organisation Overview
Blue Ventures is an award-winning marine conservation organisation working to rebuild tropical fisheries with coastal communities. We’re committed to protecting marine biodiversity in ways that benefit coastal people. We work in places where the ocean is vital to local cultures and economies, and where there is a fundamental unmet need to support human development.

Summary Job Description
In Madagascar, Blue Ventures has pioneered an integrated approach to locally-led mangrove management and we are looking to share our experience with communities and organisations in the Asia-Pacific region, and also learn from our collaborators in the process. Over the past year, we have partnered with the Indonesian NGO Blue Forests (Yayasan Hutan Biru) to scope for potential sites in Indonesia where such an approach might be applicable. As this site selection nears completion, Blue Ventures is seeking a Site Leader to launch and oversee the first of these sites, as well as develop and nurture the partnerships on the ground – with communities, local organisations, the private sector and the government – that will be central to the success of the site.

This exciting position will work alongside our passionate, growing team in Indonesia and will entail engaging with a diverse range of stakeholders, supporting them to adapt and replicate our holistic approach and foster a shared vision for effective community-led marine management.

The successful candidate will be a motivated, proactive, strategic and highly organized individual, with a keen interest and passion for working in the marine conservation sector and strong skills in building relationships and supporting collaboration with multiple actors.
