The environmental challenges we face today can seem daunting and intractable. How to protect the biosphere, balance the needs of humans and the natural world, and shape a sustainable future? These are complex, multi-faceted questions and we need to find better ways to answer them. At the Luc Hoffmann Institute we use our significant expertise and rigorous methodology to interrogate the most pressing threats to life on Earth. We believe that the best solutions arise from a wide range of disciplines, sectors and places so we bring these diverse voices together to turn ideas into tangible action and deliver cohesive new solutions.

We will provide you with the challenge of working on high profile conservation projects, where your work really makes a difference to the field of conservation in an area aligned to our strategic aims and broader global initiatives. In addition to training and development opportunities, we offer a competitive salary and benefits package, including generous pension contributions.
