Job Grade        : Band 5 – Class Executive Organizer 4
Location          : Bogor, with travel to field sites


The Wildlife Conservation Society-Indonesia Program (WCS-IP) has grown significantly over the last few decades and has contributed to supporting the Indonesian Government, particularly the Ministry of Environment and Forestry (MoEF) in conserving Indonesia’s biodiversity. WCS-IP currently has a program that focuses on landscape/seascape conservation, species conservation actions, and local community engagement.

The WCS-IP’s Sustainable Landscape and Infrastructure Program aims to support MoEF to address land and forest cover change, and improve community livelihoods in priority landscapes through partnering with the government, private sector, other civil society organizations, and communities to develop land and forest cover change-free commodity production and supply chains. In Bukit Barisan Selatan National Park (BBSNP), BBS Sustainable Commodities Partnership or BBS Kemitraan Komoditas Lestari (BBS KEKAL) builds on a shared vision for the landscape, established through a Collective Statement of Intent signed by 16 organizations in April 2018. BBS KEKAL is working with the MoEF to develop a roadmap to address encroachment and restore priority areas, while continued monitoring and patrols in collaboration with the National Park Authority to reduce the risk of future land and forest cover change.

WCS-IP is currently seeking a dynamic, highly organized and experienced Business Development Senior Specialist. The primary focus of the role is to oversee the development of BBS KEKAL into a commercially viable programme. This includes overseeing the development and implementation of company partnerships, the design and development of the landscape sustainable financing mechanism, including the partnerships required for the delivery of financial products to farmers, and securing investment into the programme/sustainable financing mechanism. This may also include the development of commercially viable alternative income opportunities at the community level. Once this commercially viable program is developed, it might be replicated to other landscape.
