At Conservation Careers we envisage a world where wildlife thrives, and are on a mission to achieve to help conservationists achieve career success. Since launching in 2013, we’ve reached over 2,200,000 aspiring and professional conservationists in 178 countries with our courses, workshops, opportunities and support programmes.

Following a detailed review of employer requirements within the sector, we’ve identified that (i) project management, (ii) fundraising and (iii) communications are core transferrable skills needed across the conservation sector. These skills help staff to be more effective in the work, and job-seekers to become more competitive and employable.

We recently launched our successful ‘Communications for Conservation Projects’ online course which teaches wildlife conservationists how to plan and deliver effective communications activities.

This is a self-paced course whereby participants watch videos and undertake associated tasks. Feedback is provided to students by the course leader, and a certificate of completion awarded at the end. The course has received excellent feedback from over 250 students who have taken it to date.

We’re now seeking course leaders to help us launch a new course for Conservation Careers in 2022 entitled ‘Fundraising for Conservation Projects’.


Working with Conservation Careers staff, your role will be to:

Review best practice for how to fundraise for conservation projects using grant applications.
Based on the review, develop the course syllabus, including learning objectives and module structure.
Create course content including slides, videos, tasks and workbook.
Support and provide feedback to participants via our private CC Pro community platform.

Experienced fundraising for conservation projects trainer.
Good working knowledge of the wildlife conservation sector.
Excellent presentation skills, and a fluent English speaker.
A commitment to our values of being open, agile, collaborative and optimistic.

This is a self-employed contract, which is also flexible-working – where you can develop the course with Conservation Careers in a timely manner which suits both parties. We would be looking to launch during the second half of 2022.

The location is also flexible. You can also be based anywhere, so long as you have a good internet connection, and be available for calls to the UK on occasions.

Renumeration will be based on a revenue share of net course sales – 50% for cohort one, and 25% thereafter.

The contract will be on-going in order to provide support and provide feedback to participants post launch.
