Job Opportunity: BirdLife Chief Executive

BirdLife International intends to appoint a new Chief Executive.

BirdLife International is the world’s largest nature conservation partnership, comprising 120 BirdLife Partners worldwide – one civil society organisation per country/territory – and growing. It has more than 13 million members and supporters. BirdLife is driven by the belief that local people, working for nature in their own places but connected nationally and internationally through the global partnership, are the key to sustaining all life on this planet. BirdLife’s unique local-to-global approach delivers high impact and long term conservation for the benefit of nature and people.

The new Chief Executive will join an organisation that is ambitious, dynamic, and already engaged in an enormously exciting change programme. S/he will both guide and articulate this process, while bringing fresh strategic insights and ambassadorial skills. The successful candidate will bring demonstrable understanding of conservation and biodiversity. This will be allied to a considerable experience working with partners in different regions of the world. The energy, intellect, and character to represent such a partnership are rare, and BirdLife is open to talented leaders from a broad range of sectors and all parts of the planet.

BirdLife International has retained Russell Reynolds Associates to assist with this appointment.
