Job Announcement

Regional Advisor for Sustainable Natural Rubber

Location: Phnom Penh, Cambodia

Want to make a positive difference to the future of people and our one shared home, the Earth? Working at WWF could be your opportunity of a lifetime.

All around the world, people are waking up to the deepening crisis of nature loss. A growing realization that nature is our life-support system. And that nobody will be spared from the impacts of its loss. Here at WWF, we are helping to tackle this enormous global challenge.

What we do
We are an independent conservation organization, striving to sustain the natural world for the benefit of people and wildlife. From individuals and communities to business and government, we are part of a growing coalition calling on world leaders to set nature on the path to recovery by 2030. Together, we seek to protect and restore natural habitats, stop the mass extinction of wildlife, and make the way we produce and consume sustainable.

WWF Cambodia works to conserve the region’s biodiversity and build a secure and sustainable future for people and wildlife. WWF-Cambodia works on the ground and in partnership with Laos, Myanmar, Thailand and Vietnam.

Position summary
The Sustainable Natural Rubber Regional Advisor provides technical support, knowledge and advice to each Country Project Team in Cambodia, Myanmar and Thailand about Sustainable Natural Rubber (SNR) practices and sustainable rubber supply chains in order to achieve the projects’ vision and goal. A key objective of the project is the establishment of functioning of Multi-Actor Partnerships that engage in sector transformation for sustainable natural rubber.

Further, the Regional Advisor facilitates learning and sharing best practices drawn from the project activities across all three countries to be shared among the project’s stakeholder and fed into regional and international debates on SNR. The Regional Advisor plays a key role in advancing the regional expertise and discussions about sustainable natural rubber among the WWF network, WHH, LCG and SCW as well as other relevant stakeholders.

As the first phase of the project draws to a close in December 2022, the focus of the remaining months will be to follow up on the recommendations of the Mid-Term Review (MTR) approved by the Steering Committee and associated Management Response and to develop a phase I extension and eventually a phase II proposal, as well as concluding ongoing phase I activities.

All activities and functions will be implemented in close coordination with the Country Project Teams as well as the WHH Regional Project Coordinator in line with the Project Charter and Governance Structure.
