This is an exciting opportunity for an enthusiastic individual with a keen interest in the environment.

This is an excellent opportunity to work closely with our Environment Fund Manager across our two main funding themes:

  • Marine: projects which work to halt declining fish stocks;
  • Forests: projects protecting tropical rain forest, principally through avoided deforestation.
