Job Description

Reports to: Deputy Country Program Director, WCS Indonesia Program
Location: Bogor, Indonesia (preferred); Jakarta could be considered for the right candidate
Position Type: Full-Time
Internal relations: Country Director, Operations Director, Senior Managers (five programs), Senior Marine Technical Advisor, Science & Technology Unit lead, Communications lead, Regional Director, Global Thematic Directors

WCS Indonesia Program Overview:
To deliver WCS Indonesia new country strategy (2022-2026), we are structured under five core thematic Programs: Forests; Marine; Wildlife Trade & Policy (WTP); One Health; and Rights & Communities. These Programs are supported by crossing-cutting Science & Technology and Communications units. Our thematic Programs are described as follows:
The Forests Program is being implemented in five landscapes — Leuser, Bukit Barisan Selatan, Way Kambas, Bogani Nani, and Rote Island — through the following core activities: protected area strengthening and wildlife management (such as SMART patrols, human-wildlife conflict mitigation, problem-oriented policing, species recovery, and biodiversity monitoring); a Sustainable Landscapes program that is addressing the two main drivers of deforestation (infrastructure development and smallholder farmland expansion), jurisdictional green growth models and sustainable financing; and a Conservation Evidence Unit (based in Bogor) that is focused on data analyses, monitoring and evaluation, and national level policy reforms.
The WTP Program is strengthening the capacity of government law enforcement agencies in the use of intelligence-led approaches with improved inter-agency coordination to yield a robust, multi-agency counter wildlife trafficking response. To support this, our field teams have prioritised preventing the trafficking of key species from our priority landscapes and seascapes and, from here, are working along the entire illegal wildlife trade supply chain by targeting connected trafficking networks operating at provincial and national levels. Our Policy Team is providing MoEF with technical assistance to reform wildlife regulations and data management systems for species protection and trade.
The Rights & Communities Program, as a new WCS-IP program, is being developed to ensure that our conservation actions safeguard the rights and wellbeing of local communities, as well as to support our field staff with efforts to engage and ally with local communities. We are deploying a Country Program-wide safeguards system, with supporting instruments, and are progressively implementing this in our landscapes and seascapes for use by WCS and partners. This Program is also developing scalable gender equity and social inclusion projects in our landscapes and seascapes.
The One Health Program, as a new WCS-IP program, is being developed to strengthen multi-stakeholder efforts to implement a One Health approach that integrates environmental, wildlife, and human health. The Program will provide technical assistance to our other Programs to address the key infectious disease drivers: improving disease surveillance and response amongst different agencies; wildlife trade and commercial wild meat consumption; addressing disease at the livestock-wildlife-forest interface and supporting rural livelihoods (such as livestock vaccinations and outreach); a ‘Blue Health’ approach to address the devastating downstream consequences of poor land management (such as water-related human diseases and reduced coral reef health and resilience); and national policy support and awareness raising.
The Marine Program is working in seascapes in the provinces of Aceh, West Nusa Tenggara, North Sulawesi, and North Maluku, as well as three marine national parks. This Program prioritises an integrated approach that consists of the following: ecological and socioeconomic surveys; fisheries science and sustainable resource use; building climate resilient coastal communities; technical assistance for the creation and management of Marine Protected Areas (MPAs) and marine national parks; legal compliance to reduce destructive fishing practices; marine and fisheries policy reforms; and sustainable financing.

Job Summary:
This position is responsible for providing critical technical thinking and support into the delivery of the WCS-IP country strategy and detailed workplans for four programs (WTP, Forests, One Health and Rights & Communities). This role will provide key technical support for the ongoing development of WCS-IP, including maintaining and diversifying a global donor network, especially with the in-country representatives. The position sits within the WCS-IP Senior Management Team, reports to the Deputy Country Director and will work closely with the County Director, Head of Operations and other senior WCS IP staff, as well as the Regional Director and WCS Head Office.

Provide technical assistance to the Deputy Country Director and Program Managers (WTP, Forests, One Health, and Rights & Communities) to ensure timely and high-quality project implementation, including delivery against the work plan, staffing and grants management.
Support the strategic growth of WCS-IP, generating ideas and concepts for new initiatives, including Programs (One Health, Rights & Communities), projects (such as Rote Island climate change adaptation, and provincial green growth models) and cross-cutting initiatives (such as the Protected Area and Biodiversity Fund and Biodiversity Research Hub).
Support WCS IP's science driven approach, especially in supporting for our staff, developing scientific publications and participating in international/regional conferences, and maintaining/creating international academic collaborations.
Support regional program learning and exchanges.
Work with the Regional Director and Country Program Directors in SEAA to identify and implement strategic regional program activities.

Work with the Regional Director and WCS Thematic and Strategic Partnership Directors (especially in Europe and the US) to identify and cultivate new funding opportunities for Indonesia, and regionally.
Support the Deputy and Country Director and program teams by leading or supporting concept note and proposal development and writing.
