Open Position

Regional Manager, Conservation


BCP is developing a large-scale REDD+ Project in Mozambique. This project will be implemented across 12 districts in 4 provinces in Central and Southern Mozambique, covering approximately 4 million hectares. The primary aim of the project is reducing deforestation and linking National Parks, private game farms, and ranches with communal forest areas to facilitate biodiversity adaptation to climate change through the establishment of corridors. It aims to benefit over 318,940 local community members and is preliminarily estimated to reduce GHG emissions by 31,966,125 tCO2e over a 30-year span. A project designed to deliver the same life-changing impacts to the community, and benefits to climate change and biodiversity that we have succeeded in delivering in Zambia.

BCP is recruiting for a multi-country Regional Manager, Conservation, to guide BCP into a new phase of conservation impacts and partnership building.  The primary responsibility of the Regional Manager is to support Government and community partners to build the capacity required to reduce the threats to valuable Zambian forests and biodiversity.  This role will extend out to our Mozambique and Angola planned expansions. The scope of the role will cover oversight of the resource Protection and forest management strategies and activities in partner chiefdoms, where applicable. The position requires establishing and maintaining strong working relationships and ties with key GRZ partners in Zambia including DNPW, the Forestry Department, and Community Resource Boards, and with equivalent front-line ministries and departments in Angola and Mozambique in order to reach zero deforestation rates in project areas, while instilling a community-based approach towards restoring wildlife and habitat protection and sustainable management in project areas.  The position requires advanced partnership and team building abilities, as well as skills in data management, conducting fieldwork in rural Africa, advanced spreadsheet skills, excellent English writing skills, knowledge of forest management and conservation methodologies, as well as a willingness to live in Zambia and travel regionally.  Experience working in Angola and Mozambique including Portuguese language skills is desired.

The main tasks will be managing stakeholder partnerships, supporting partners to achieve continental-class operational effectiveness, catalyzing capacity building of CRB community scouts plus Government partners, ensuring data systems work and are used in adaptive management, and coordinating logistics and building forest management capacity amongst partners.  This role has the exciting opportunity to be a key liaison with our partners.  The position will require extensive travel to rural areas, and a willingness to engage in fundraising efforts.
