Working for the WWF-INTERNATIONAL DANUBE-CARPATHIAN PROGRAMME Who we are. The WWF Danube-Carpathian Programme Office is part of WWF, one of the largest and most experienced nature conservation organisations in the world. We are a team of more than 60 highly specialised professionals ranging from biologists, hydraulic engineers, economists to communications specialists and finance experts based in seven countries and cooperate with national WWF organisations in Europe and across the world. Where we work. We work throughout the Danube River basin, the world’s most international river basin, and across the Carpathian Mountains, Europe’s last bastion for wolves and bears. We work in a diverse and dynamic region, comprising as many as 18 countries. Romania, Bulgaria and Ukraine are key countries for our work, with Serbia and the Western Balkans gaining in importance. Our head office is in Vienna, the main activities on the ground are coordinated in Bucharest and Sofia, with branch offices in other towns of Romania and Bulgaria, as well as Ukraine, Slovakia and Serbia. What we do. Our aim is to conserve biodiversity while ensuring sustainable livelihoods for the people of our region. We promote the development and effective management of protected areas as well as sustainable use of natural resources, e.g. through sustainable forestry management. We promote integrated river basin management as well as sustainable agricultural practices. We seek to maximise the opportunities and minimise the threats of the new market economy for conservation and sustainable livelihoods by shaping the regulatory environment and demonstrating long-term solutions. We address Climate change as a major challenge to the globe. How we do it. We achieve tangible conservation solutions through a combination of field-based demonstration projects, policy work, capacity building and awareness-raising. We seek to leverage and enable conservation results by influencing decision makers, from the EU to regional levels. Our guiding principles. We are personal, professional, credible and accountable, efficient and effective, innovative and creative. Most importantly, we are solutions oriented. We use the best available scientific information to address issues and critically evaluate our endeavours. We seek dialogue and partnership, but are challenging where this is necessary. We respect local people and their needs, and involve them in determining the future of their communities. We enhance our capacity by empowering and partnering with others. We are global, multi-cultural, non-partisan and independent. What we offer. Inspiring career opportunities in a multicultural team at a global environmental player in one of Europe’s last wilderness regions that allows you to grow and develop with the opportunity to undergo training every year, a fair NGO-type remuneration, and the opportunity to make contacts around Europe and the world.
