We are looking to recruit an exceptional, passionate, and inspiring individual to lead the work of the EDGE of Existence Programme. The individual will lead and manage the EDGE programme, with oversight of all activities, including the capacity building components within the programme and science, strategic development, donor and partnership engagement and effective conservation action for EDGE species. The role represents a tremendous opportunity for an individual who is truly passionate about capacity building to deliver locally led species conservation. You will need to be well organized, diplomatic, and have experience managing or leading a programme with full budget oversight and line management responsibility. You will also ideally have experience planning, or leading, threatened species recovery programmes/projects in the field, particularly in developing countries. The role will interact broadly across the organisation, including with colleagues in ZSL’s conservation programmes, the Institute of Zoology and the zoos.
