Officer, Global Sharks Conservation (Cites/Un/International Conservation Campaigning)

The Pew Charitable Trusts is driven by the power of knowledge to solve today’s most challenging problems. Pew applies a rigorous, analytical approach to improve public policy, inform the public and invigorate civic life. We are an independent nonprofit organization – the sole beneficiary of seven individual trusts established between 1948 and 1979 by two sons and two daughters of Sun Oil Company founder Joseph N. Pew and his wife, Mary Anderson Pew. Our work lays the foundation for effective policy solutions by informing and engaging citizens, linking diverse interests to pursue common cause and insisting on tangible results. Our projects encourage efficient, responsive governments – at the local, state, national and international levels – serving the public interests. With offices in Philadelphia, Washington, DC, Brussels and London and staff in other regions of the United States as well as Australia, Pew provides an exciting learning environment and the opportunity to work with highly talented individuals. We are a dynamic, rapidly evolving organization that values creativity and innovative thinking and fosters strong teamwork with mutual respect. Environment For the past two decades, Pew has been a major force in educating the public and policy makers about the causes, consequences and solutions to some of the world’s most pressing environmental challenges. Our work is focused on reducing the scope and severity of three major global environmental problems: + Dramatic changes to the Earth’s climate brought about by the increasing concentration of greenhouse gases in the planet’s atmosphere; + The erosion of large terrestrial wilderness ecosystems that contain a great part of the world’s remaining biodiversity; and, + The destruction of the world’s marine environment. Project Summary Sharks have roamed our oceans since before the time of dinosaurs, but their long reign at the top of the ocean food chain may be ending. The onset of industrial fishing over the past 60 years has drastically depleted their populations and approximately 100 million sharks are killed every year to primarily support the global shark fin industry, valued for the Asian delicacy shark fin soup. In general, sharks are exceptionally vulnerable to overexploitation and slow to recover from depletion. As key predators, their depletion also has risks for the health of entire ocean ecosystems. The global sharks conservation campaign is designed to reverse this global decline of shark populations through public education, advocacy and research. The campaign is engaged in activities to educate and mobilize the public, media, and policymakers in international forums including regional fisheries management organizations, the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Flora and Fauna (CITES) and the United Nations, and to secure precautionary, science-based protections for sharks within countries targeted for nation-based action. Position Overview The Officer, Global Shark Conservation is responsible for the development and analysis of shark conservation policies, and the strategic development and delivery of Pew’s shark conservation policy work in collaboration with the project director and broader team. The Officer will help to advise the team on the appropriate policy goals for relevant fora, regional organizations or countries and help to ensure the implementation of the campaigns approved goals. It is expected that this position is for a term period through March 2018, with the possibility of an extension pending the success of the program, funding sources and board decisions on continued support.

  • Monitor, analyze and influence emerging shark policy proposals at international, regional and national levels.

  • Assist in the development and success of a clear and focused strategy to meet identified campaign goals at the international, regional and national level.

  • Represent The Pew Charitable Trusts at international, regional and national fora and at campaign meetings and events where shark conservation policies will be discussed.

  • Develop and maintain working relationships with decision makers, government officials and national and international institutions, as well as relevant nongovernmental organizations in the field to advance campaign goals.

  • Serve as a spokesperson for the campaign.

  • Develop policy briefs, papers and advice for the campaign. Review and provide comments on draft policy proposals, regulations and white papers to internal and external audiences as needed in a timely fashion.

  • Develop outreach materials for policymakers and the public in target regions.

  • Coordinate with other international ocean conservation campaigns where relevant.

  • Help design a cost effective budget for the campaign’s international policy work and monitor relevant campaign expenses, evaluating project costs as needed.

  • Manage consultants that work to advance the campaign’s international policy goals.

  • Collaborate with the campaign director and other Pew staff to provide project partners and donors with regular updates on project advancements.

  • Bachelor’s degree required; graduate degree in public affairs, public policy or environmental science preferred.

  • Eight years of professional outreach experience helping shape the way the decision makers and the public perceive and respond to environmental and natural resource management issues. Specific experience with marine wildlife or fisheries issues is preferred.

  • Prior to commencing employment with Pew, candidates for this position who were registered to lobby in any jurisdiction must certify termination of previous registration(s) and provide copies of termination notices with said jurisdiction(s) to Pew.

  • Able to set short- and long-term planning goals in line with program strategy. A task-oriented style, with focus on achieving clear and ambitious goals. Demonstrated ability to meet multiple deadlines by maintaining a high level of organization. Able to develop and move projects forward with a high degree of independence and autonomy.

  • Superior oral and written communications skills. Able to synthesize material and to focus quickly on the essence of an issue and the means to address it. Confident in presenting one’s own ideas and diplomatically persuading others as appropriate. Ability to communicate complex ideas for a general audience.

  • Strong interpersonal skills; able to develop and manage productive relationships with consultants, partners and others who contribute to the development of a project by anticipating possible outcomes.

  • Able to work productively with a wide array of different people and institutions that frequently disagree with and are in competition with one another.

  • Excellent analytic and problem solving skills, and highly results-oriented.

  • Seasoned judgment, able to make decisions, justify recommendations, and be responsive, clear and firm with colleagues and partners.
