Senior Programme Advisor- Asia

Job description
If you are experienced in developing, managing and monitoring the delivery of conservation programmes this is an amazing opportunity to use your expertise to support efforts to help sustain the life support systems that nature provides us with. At WWF we are working to provide solutions to the greatest environmental problems facing our planet and as a Senior Programme Advisor: Asia you will collaborate with colleagues in China and India to deliver high impact programmes that are designed to help nature and people thrive.

As Senior Programme Advisor: Asia, you will provide advice, programme management oversight and support to a portfolio of international grants delivered by our network partners mainly in China (and potentially India). This will include engaging with WWF colleagues in the UK and overseas to support strong partnership approaches, ensure adherence to best practice principles, risk analysis and timely reporting and robust budgeting. You will also provide input into planning, due diligence processes and MEL frameworks. You will help develop powerful evidence-based stories and narratives to engage our supporters, businesses, media and new audiences too. Important will be the ability to identify resource gaps, share learning and support capacity building.

You will have considerable experience of developing, managing and monitoring the delivery of conservation and/or development programmes. You will possess good technical knowledge on key, relevant international conservation and development issues too, especially in relation to China and/or India and will be able to provide thought leadership on issues such as mining, infrastructure, Chinese overseas investment or energy transition. You will also be familiar with the development of high-quality funding proposals and donor reports. Skilled at thinking critically, you will be good at influencing others and able to work in a flexible, collaborative manner. You should also have experience of supporting teams remotely and the ability to build lasting relationships with stakeholders, taking into account multi-cultural sensitivity and experiences.

Complete the online registration and submit a copy of your up-to-date CV with the Supporting Statement highlighting what makes you a good fit for us.

Every role at WWF is open to applications from all sections of society. We believe in the potential of everyone regardless of; race, religion or belief, ethnic origin, different physical ability, family structure, socio-economics, age, nationality or citizenship, marital, domestic or civil partnership, sexual orientation, gender identity, or any other aspect that makes you, well you. Here at WWF we’re committed to conscious inclusion that helps cultivate an ethos of belonging, connection and shared purpose. We believe that the more diverse we are the better we become; this brings us together and empowers us to develop, engage and inspire; and critically to help build a future where people can live in harmony with nature.

Our policies and benefits reflect the importance of people being able to have a good work-life balance and being able to bring their ‘full self’ to work.

Our world needs you like never before. We are the first generation to know we are destroying the world and we could be the last that can do anything about it. We’re looking for people who are passionate about making it politically, socially and economically unacceptable to destroy our planet’s natural resources. We need you to join us in the fight for our world.
