Jamma and its partners are dedicated to preserving the sustainable use of natural resources and the rights of communities living alongside wildlife. Policies restricting sustainable use are gaining momentum, posing threats to vulnerable communities reliant on these resources. These marginalised communities, already bearing the brunt of climate change, often lack influence in conservation decisions. Jamma is actively working through projects, communication initiatives, and social media efforts to address these challenges and advocate for sustainable, community-focused conservation policies.
This role will suit someone used to working both autonomously and within a small team. They will work closely with the Head of Indigenous Peoples and Local Communities Resource Rights, the Project Development Manager, the Project Coordinator, and the Director of Conservation and Communities.
It is an office-based position on a one-year fixed contract at £21,000 per annum in Cape Town, South Africa.
