Reef-World’s Programmes Officers provide technical support for the development and delivery of assigned Reef-World Programmes. This Programmes Officer role is tied specifically to leading the analysis of data to inform Green Fins programme delivery and development for impact.
The Reef-World Foundation is recognised as the leading voice on sustainability solutions for the marine tourism industry. Through its flagship initiative, Green Fins, Reef-World drives sustainable behaviours for environmental protection by providing low-cost and practical solutions to local and industry-wide environmental challenges associated with the marine tourism industry. Reef-World has implemented Green Fins in Antigua & Barbuda, Costa Rica, Dominican Republic, Egypt, Indonesia, Japan, Malaysia, Maldives, Palau, Philippines, Singapore, Thailand and Vietnam.
As a key member of the Programmes team, you will be helping to protect one of the world’s most valuable ecosystems – coral reefs – by building the knowledge, capacity, and motivation for the global marine tourism industry to become more sustainable.
The Programmes Officers supporting the Green Fins programme are passionate about protecting coral reefs and the incredible marine life they support because of their ecological value as well as for the benefit of our stakeholders – local communities, visitors, and future generations.
What We’re Looking For
We’re on the lookout for someone who is an analytical thinker who’s passionate about understanding data and applying learnings to further our programmes to conserve coral reefs and the marine life and local communities they support. The successful candidate will have more than 3 years in conservation / environmental management data analysis and a proven track record interpreting this for, and executing, impact.
You should be a proactive and resourceful leader and team player, able to work independently and remotely across multiple time zones while maintaining strong communication with international team members. You will naturally approach tasks with a sense of curiosity, patience and the ability to consider the bigger picture impact of your work. You’ll be open to new experiences and adventures, adaptable and have a good sense of humour!
