Vacancy: project coordinator

Do you excel in project management and international collaboration, and care about the conservation of the natural world? This could be the role for you.

The Luc Hoffmann Institute and UNEP-WCMC are seeking a full-time project coordinator to support the team in managing international science and policy projects. Under the guidance of the Head of Programme and in close collaboration with other team members and partner organisations, you will ensure the effective delivery of multiple projects as well the overall cohesiveness of the programme to support the Luc Hoffmann Institute’s strategy.

The environmental challenges we face today can seem daunting and intractable. How to protect the biosphere, balance the needs of humans and the natural world, and shape a sustainable future? These are complex, multi-faceted questions and we need to find better ways to answer them. At the Luc Hoffmann Institute we use our significant expertise and rigorous methodology to interrogate the most pressing threats to life on Earth. We believe the best solutions arise from a wide range of disciplines, sectors and places so we work to bring these diverse voices together to turn ideas into tangible action, and deliver cohesive new solutions.

We will provide you with the challenge of working on high-profile conservation projects, where your work makes a tangible difference to the field of nature conservation in an area aligned to our strategic aims and broader global initiatives. In addition to training and development opportunities, we offer a competitive salary and benefits package, including generous pension contributions. The successful candidate will be an employee of UNEP-WCMC, a close partner of the Luc Hoffmann Institute, based at the David Attenborough Building in Cambridge, UK.
