Senior Officer, Conservation and Financial Planning, Enduring Earth Initiative

I wanted to draw your attention to what is a pretty cool opportunity to apply expertise in both conservation planning and financial modeling to make conservation more durable. The team this job is on is part of an initiative between Pew, TNC, WWF, and Zomalab to avoid the challenges of “paper parks” by ensuring that conservation management is properly resourced and durable. They are hoping to get someone strong on both the conservation planning side as well as the financial side if possible. They need a minimum of 10 years applicable experience and at least a bachelor’s degree in conservation, finance, or management, and there’s a lot of information in the job description (including that it’s based in Washington, DC, which is not flexible). I’m not part of the hiring process and don’t have a ton of unique insight into the position, but let me know if you have questions the job description doesn’t answer.   Jon
