The World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF) is one of the best-known nature conservation organizations in the world. With projects in over a hundred countries, we pursue the goal of preserving the biological diversity of our planet - right where it counts.

WWF Germany is an independent part of this global network. Through our own initiatives and qualified lobbying in public relations, business and politics, we translate WWF's goals into action in Germany. We succeed in doing so primarily thanks to motivated and qualified employees: people who know their stuff; people who pitch in and give a hand; people who consider nature and species conservation to be not only a job - but as a conviction that together we can create a future worth living. And our employees are enthusiastically involved.

Do you identify with the goals of the WWF? Do you share our conviction? To strengthen our department Markets & Business, subject area Economy & Markets in Berlin, we are looking for a qualified person for the next possible date for a limited time span (15.08.2023) for part time employment (20 hours a week) for the following position:
