Thank you for your interest in the role of Associate Programme Officer within the Nature Conserved team at UNEP-WCMC

We are seeking a highly motivated Associate Programme Officer with strong numerical skills and a commitment to providing accurate information and analyses to decision-makers. This role will support UNEP-WCMC’s Nature Conserved team, particularly with our work on ensuring that international trade in deforestation-related commodities and wildlife is both legal and sustainable.

Applicants should be proficient in the manipulation, analysis, and visualisation of large, complex datasets in R and have experience of writing and managing replicable code scripts. As contributing to reports for policy-makers will be a key aspect of the role, the successful applicant will also have experience of synthesising information and conveying key results in succinct and engaging outputs. A basic knowledge of and strong interest in wildlife trade, deforestation, and conservation and forest policy is also important. Practical experience in analysing, cleaning and manipulating trade data (e.g., CITES trade data, UN Comtrade data or EU Comext data) would be highly valued, as would knowledge/experience of working on species-level data, forest indicators, sustainable supply chains and/or traceability.

We will provide you with the challenge of working on high impact projects where your work really makes a difference in the field of conservation. In addition to training and development opportunities, we offer a competitive salary and benefits package, including generous pension contributions.

If you are looking for a rewarding and challenging post where you can put your technical expertise and excellent numerical skills to good use while contributing to global efforts to safeguard nature, we want to hear from you.
