Fauna and Flora International
Voluntary basis with expenses reimbursed

Fauna & Flora International (FFI) saves threatened species and ecosystems worldwide, and does this by working with partners to deliver local conservation solutions that are sustainable, scientifically robust and linked to human well-being. FFI acts with integrity, is collaborative, committed, supportive and respectful, and we get things done. Founded in 1903, FFI is the world’s longest established international conservation body; our conservation work, and impact, spans the globe. We work in over 300 sites in close to 40 countries, influencing the conservation of over 52 million hectares of crucial habitat and, in the process, locking away almost on billion tonnes of carbon. We are taking direct action to safeguard 100 priority species, benefitting many others in the process, and support the work of literally thousands of people at grass roots level.

The Role

As we look to broaden our breadth and agility as a Board, we are seeking a new Trustee to join us who has operated at a strategic level in HR – ideally with experience of working in organisations that have an international footprint – with deep experience of organisational and cultural change. 

Whatever sector your HR expertise has been gained in, you will be a strategic thinker with strong communication skills and the ability to probe and appropriately challenge both the Executive and Board colleagues, deploying a collaborative approach and sound judgement.  We are committed to equity, fairness and transparency and we actively encourage applications from people with diverse experience and backgrounds who will bring to the Board the knowledge, skills and commitment to help drive progress, equality, diversity and inclusion.

This role offers an opportunity to join a talented and committed Board of Trustees and to be part of one of the most effective and respected conservation organisations globally.  If you value the natural world and think it should be protected for its own sake as well as humanity’s, I hope you will read on to find out more.
