WWT’s International CEPA team aspires to empower and enable a global community of highly skilled wetland CEPA practitioners. We work through two key networks: Wetland Link International (WLI), as support network run by WWT for those working at wetland education centres; and the World Wetland Network (WWN), a network of civil society groups linked to Ramsar. We are also currently developing a global wetland learning tool which will support wetland practitioners by providing an online learning environment to develop their skills and capacity to deliver wetland conservation on the ground. The team works closely with multilateral environmental agreements such as Ramsar, AEWA, Ramsar Regional Centre East Asia, and the EAAFP as well as internally with other WWT overseas work areas such as in Cambodia and Madagascar.

The International CEPA Assistant is a remote opportunity for a wetland professional to work with WWT on a part-time basis for a period of six to nine months. During this period the Assistant will: support the International CEPA team to create content for our networks; identify underused CEPA resources within the networks and make them more accessible; support the coordination of our CEPA programme; and participate in a bespoke training programme to build your skills to catalyse greater CEPA impact in the future. 

This position is designed to be as flexible as possible, and we anticipate that the Assistant will be able to continue in their current role at reduced hours whilst taking on this contract with WWT. We are happy to work with current employers to find ways to accommodate workloads. 

Experience of working in wetland conservation work in Madagascar or in WWT’s priority flyways; the East Asian Australasian Flyway and the East Atlantic Flyway would be advantageous.

WWT is a conservation charity that protects wetlands for wildlife and people. We conserve, restore and create wetlands. We are pioneers in saving wetland wildlife, both in the UK and around the world. At our ten UK sites around a million visitors a year engage with wetland nature. We work internationally in key global wetland areas, balancing conservation with sustainable livelihoods and influencing national and international conservation policies.

  • Start date: April / May 2024
  • Location: Home-based or a wetland conservation organisation in the East Atlantic or East Asian-Australasian flyways.
  • Contract type / duration: The duration of this consultancy contract is for up to 9 months
