Fundacíon Para La Tierra is looking for an Administration Manager to assist the directive team of Fundacion Para La Tierra in our work to protect fragile habitats in Paraguay through biological research, community engagement, and environmental education. This opportunity would be perfect for someone with Administration training or relevant experience looking for a change of pace, a new adventure, and personal and professional growth and development.
This is a key role within the Fundacíon with significant scope to shape our approach to conservation and community engagement. Our area of influence includes a wealth of ecological landscapes and habitats, including the wetlands of Ñeembucú, the Atlantic Forest and the Humid and Dry Chaco. Each of these habitats are inhabited by a host of tropical wildlife, endangered by a variety of threats, posing a challenging problem for an enthusiastic administrator with a conservation mindset.
Our vision is to change the course of Paraguayan environmentalism, involving stakeholders and proposing policy based on solid science. We work with local community members, national and international NGOs, international volunteers and interns and the government to inspire people to appreciate the value of nature, and to work together to protect it.
We’re looking for an exceptional organiser with skills in preparing finances and writing reports with a strong track record of working on multi-faceted and ambitious programs. You will have experience of admin management supported by a qualification, and a passion for biology and conservation. You'll understand the importance of team collaboration. You will be an excellent communicator, both written and verbal (in English essential, Spanish desired), ideally with experience of project writing and reporting, and preparing public media articles fit for a wide range of audiences.
