Manager, Shared Learning and Performance
Last year, WWF launched a new strategy that harnesses the strengths of the WWF network in a shared vision, focussing on six major goals – water, wildlife, the ocean, climate and energy, forests, and food – and three key drivers of environmental problems – markets, finance and governance.
In support of this strategy WWF undertook a redesign of its international secretariat that will further unite WWF offices and its near 6,400 staff around the world.
This will help WWF to build stronger partnerships across the world with government, business, civil society and individuals. Together, we will deliver on WWF’s ambitious goals.
We are recruiting the role of Manager, Shared Learning and Performance for our International Secretariat to help us achieve our new ambitious goals, and build a future where people live in harmony with nature.
