Reports to: Director of Environmental Programmes and Principal Advisor
Arcadia, a charitable fund of Lisbet Rausing and Peter Baldwin, supports endangered nature and culture, and promotes open access. Arcadia has had a longstanding commitment to supporting the attainment of lasting biodiversity-conservation outcomes, the development and enforcement of environmental laws, and the training of conservation professionals. Since 2002, we have awarded more than $184 million to environmental causes worldwide. From 2018, the amount we can give each year for environmental programmes is increasing to $50 million.
About this role
As we expand our grant-making, we have decided to recruit a new Grants Manager with a PhD in environmental sciences, ecology, conservation biology or a related topic. This is a senior role, which will involve independent research and negotiations on a national and an international level. We are looking for someone with a keen interest in the fields of biodiversity conservation and habitat restoration, who wants to harness the power of philanthropy to make a real impact.
The successful candidate will play an important role in the development, management and evaluation of our international portfolio of grants, and the provision of advice on, and identification of opportunities for, projects concerning practical biodiversity conservation and habitat restoration. You can find more information about Arcadia on our website www.arcadiafund.org.uk.
