National Biodiversity and Business Network (NBBN) Manager Vacancy
Closing date: 17 October 2020

The Endangered Wildlife Trust (EWT) is one of the largest biodiversity conservation NGOs in southern Africa and is seeking to employ a National Biodiversity and Business Network (NBBN) Manager. The Endangered Wildlife Trust (EWT) launched the NBBN in 2013 to facilitate a reduction in the impact of business on biodiversity in South Africa by driving broad business action in the area of biodiversity mainstreaming. The NBBN facilitates the integration of biodiversity into business strategies and operations within various sectors, industries and through related stakeholders. It is an open and inclusive network designed to help raise awareness of biodiversity and sustainability issues within the business community and to encourage dialogue amongst stakeholders, as well as to provide pragmatic and practical support to facilitate the mainstreaming process. In the past two years, a key focus of the NBBN has been developing the Biological Diversity Protocol, a biodiversity accounting framework for business, which assists businesses to aggregate data from various sites across a company’s value or supply chain and to measure impacts on biodiversity in a standardised way. The NBBN is now poised to oversee the roll-out of this tool and to drive improved performance in South African businesses through the application of this tool and the development of strategic partnerships to reduce biodiversity loss.
The EWT is looking for a dynamic, passionate, and confident person to lead the strategic development and management of the day-to-day activities of the NBBN. This person will be responsible for the strategic direction, operational management, and project development within the NBBN. This includes updating the existing strategy, promoting and developing the EWT’s Biodiversity Disclosure Project offerings, presenting at events, developing and implementing projects with partners and stakeholders, and fundraising for the NBBN. The successful candidate should embody the EWT’s values of passion, integrity, and innovation.
