The Asian Species Action Partnership (ASAP)
ASAP is an inter-institutional Partnership convened by the International
Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) Species Survival Commission
(SSC), which focuses attention on a region that, without more serious
conservation intervention, will see the demise of much of its unique
diversity. ASAP was established to address the extinction risk among the
most threatened land and freshwater vertebrates of Southeast Asia.
We are seeking a self-driven and motivated individual to coordinate
Partnerships and Communications for the ASAP Partnership. The position
will develop and build the current ASAP Partner network and lead on
developing and implementing a wider Partnership strategy and will
involve engagement with zoos and aquaria, conservation organisations and
funding bodies among others. The individual will be expected to be able
to negotiate and develop new Partnerships, understanding needs and
interests. He or she will also lead on ASAP communications and branding
and must have experience developing and implementing communication
strategies with the ability to transform technical information into
compelling and engaging stories.
The successful candidate will be expected to liaise with diverse
stakeholders across the global conservation community and beyond and
thus needs excellent communication and relationship skills.
