Position: Technical Officer -- FFI

Technical Officer, Coastal & Marine Conservation Project, Cambodia
Salary:    USD 25,000
Start Date:    As soon as possible
Contract Type:    Two year fixed-term contract
Location:     Cambodia (please see application pack for further detail)

FFI’s Coastal and Marine Conservation Project (CMCP) has been supporting the Fisheries Administration (FiA) of the Royal Government of Cambodia through a programme of capacity building. FiA has specifically requested technical and financial support in their efforts to establish and manage Cambodia’s first large-scale multiple-use Marine Protected Area (MPA), known locally as a Marine Fisheries Management Area (MFMA).

The purpose of the project is to put the necessary capacity in place to manage the first model MFMA for Cambodia in the Koh Rong Archipelago. FFI will reinforce growing local capacity through sharing lessons and building links to the wider regional MPA community to develop a supportive network, which will extend beyond the project duration. FFI also aims to trial options for diversifying funding streams to the Koh Rong Archipelago MFMA, in collaboration with public and private sector stakeholders. The overall goal of the work is to see Cambodia’s marine resources conserved effectively and to support the growth of sustainable, diversified coastal livelihoods. While the current focus is the Koh Rong Archipelago, FFI is also supporting the expansion of this work to other areas, building partnerships with the government and other stakeholders in order to catalyse the development of a representative and effective MPA network in Cambodia.

FFI is seeking a Technical Officer to support its Marine Programme in Cambodia within the Koh Rong Archipelago and Koh Sdach Archipelagos. Under the supervision of the Marine Project Manager, and in close consultation with the FFI Cambodia team, Fisheries Administration and other Cambodian Government staff, the Technical Officer will play a key role in supporting the effective delivery of the Marine Fisheries Management Plan for the Koh Rong Archipelago, with a focus on building long-term and locally-led marine research and conservation capacity and strengthening stakeholder communication. The position will also provide support for the wider development of marine conservation in Cambodia, including field operations in the Koh Sdach Archipelago, where baseline research is taking place to inform the development of locally-relevant conservation interventions.

The Technical Officer will be an experienced field scientist and an excellent communicator, who will support the Project Manager and CMCP team in the further development and active management of the project and associated initiatives.
