About Oak Foundation and the role:
Oak Foundation (www.oakfnd.org) commits its resources to address issues of global social and environmental concern, particularly those that have a major impact on the lives of the disadvantaged. With offices in Europe, Africa and North America, Oak Foundation makes grants to organisations located in approximately 40 countries worldwide.
The Environment Programme at Oak Foundation has three sub-Programmes: Climate Change; Marine Conservation; and Wildlife Conservation and Trade. In the Climate Change sub-Programme, we hope to contribute to mitigating greenhouse gases emissions in line with the global objective of keeping average temperatures well below 2°C, particularly in the energy and transportation sectors, while promoting low-carbon and liveable cities. In the Marine sub-Programme, we seek to increase the sustainability of industrial fisheries, improve the management of small-scale subsistence fisheries, and drastically reduce the leakage of plastic debris into the oceans. Finally, in the Wildlife Conservation and Trade sub-programme, our objective is to help disrupt the illegal trafficking of wildlife and implement innovative people-centred wildlife conservation models.
To respond to the imminent threat of illegal wildlife trade, Oak Foundation contributes to reorienting what has been mostly a reactive approach to a more preventative approach. We support partners that use an integrated, intelligence-led approach to wildlife crime enforcement, which can precipitate key disruptions in the illegal wildlife trafficking networks. We support partners to improve legal and policy enabling conditions and to build global capacity. Our wildlife conservation and trade work is focused primarily in East and Southern Africa, as well as Asia.
We are currently recruiting a Programme Officer for the Wildlife Conservation and Trade team based in London, UK. This position reports to the Programme Officer of the Wildlife Conservation and Trade sub-programme. It is a full-time, office-based position and the salary is circa GBP 48,000 with benefits.
