Office Director – Central Africa

This is a unique opportunity to make a real difference in a role that will constantly challenge your abilities and reward your enthusiasm. Providing strategic and operational leadership to TRAFFIC’s Central Africa programme, your remit will encompass overseeing research, policy and programme development, advocacy, fundraising, communications and capacity building across Central Africa. This will include managing the team, developing strong relationships with governments, partner agencies and organisations, as well as ensuring the programme runs smoothly day-to-day.

An outstanding leader with proven managerial coordination and communication skills, you’ll also need a good understanding of conservation, development and socio-economic issues in Central Africa, including substantial experience of working in the region. A relevant degree (e.g. biology, political science, law, economics, or international relations) is essential, along with a thorough knowledge of multilateral environmental agreements and the issues around wildlife management and sustainable development. Fluency in English and French (spoken and written) is vital.
