Apply your policy and campaign experience to protect marine life and the future of our oceans.
We’ve only got one Earth. A planet that we all – animals, plants and people – share and depend upon. The need to protect it has never been greater. For over 50 years WWF has been a leading voice for nature. We are the world’s largest conservation organisation, working in 100 countries and with over 5 million supporters. WWF-Australia is the 7th largest member of the WWF Network. We work with governments, businesses and communities on environmental issues with a single mission: to build a world where people live and prosper in harmony with nature.
The Oceans team works to build a resilient ocean by improving how we manage what goes in and what comes out of the ocean, and protecting important regions within Asia Pacific and threatened ecosystems like coral reefs. One dump truck of plastic waste enters our oceans every minute. This accumulates to 8 million tons of plastics entering the oceans. In order to stop leakage of plastic into the ocean, businesses must be a part of the solution and take accountability for their plastic pollution footprint and improve their products, supply chains, and waste management.
As part of the Oceans team, the No Plastic in Nature Policy Manager works to achieve new laws, policies and innovation to reduce plastic pollution in our oceans. The position leads WWF-Australia’s No Plastics in Nature advocacy campaign and works in partnership with individuals, businesses and organisations to reduce marine plastic pollution entering our waterways.
WWF values diversity and is building a workforce that reflects the community we serve. WWF is an equal opportunity employer and Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islander peoples, people from culturally & linguistically diverse (CALD) backgrounds and people with disabilities are encouraged to apply.
