Earth Skills Network Manager (4 days per week)
£26,984 - £30,630 (£33,730 - £38,288 FTE)
1 year fixed term contract
Do you have the project management skills to establish a brand new environmental network with major companies? If so, you could be part of an international charity that’s achieving great things: Earthwatch.
Earthwatch is committed to conserving the diversity and integrity of life on earth. Our mission is to engage people worldwide in scientific field research and education, in order to promote the understanding and action necessary for a sustainable environment. As part of our team, you can help us take a big step forward.
About the role
We’re currently developing an exciting initiative with a large multi-national foundation: the Earth Skills Network. As Manager, you’ll be responsible for delivering this Network and putting in place a business model for companies committed to transferring business skills to the conservation sector. We’ll look to you to develop an overall business plan for the Network and a financially sustainable model, where corporate members provide funding and business skills. To attract and secure these corporate members, you’ll need to create effective marketing materials and build relationships with potential corporate candidates. Once the Network is established, much of your role will involve managing partner relationships, delivering projects and working collaboratively to deliver results. It’s important that you work closely with our Programme Managers in different regions, implementing best practice, promoting partner communication and strengthening the Network.
A skilled (and ideally qualified) Project Manager, you have experience of fundraising within the corporate sector. You’re used to working on multi-stakeholder programmes and have a gift for quickly building strong relationships with partners and contacts. Your excellent communication skills play a big part in this, enabling you to present information articulately, both in person and on paper. You combine these people skills with business planning expertise, knowledge of budgeting and financial management, and plenty of determination. Ideally you’ll have a relevant MSc-level degree and knowledge of conservation project management – but this isn’t essential.
Closing date: Friday 1st June 2012
