Organisation overview

Blue Ventures develops locally led approaches to marine management that benefit people and nature alike. By listening and responding to basic needs, we design our models to catalyse and sustain marine conservation, unlocking the potential of coastal communities to manage their resources. We work in places where the ocean is vital to local cultures and economies, and are committed to advancing the rights of small-scale fishers throughout the coastal tropics.

Summary Job Description

Do you have a passion for conservation communication? Do you care about the marine environment and the communities who rely on it? Are you an experienced campaigner ready to raise the voice of coastal communities as together we face existential threats? Do you want to be part of a rapidly growing organisation as we scale our impact, catalysing conservation in some of the world’s most remote and important marine biodiversity hotspots?

Whether through photo stories, news articles, media releases, blogs, or social media campaigns, you’ll be proactive in telling our story, and you will support the production and dissemination of reports, research articles, toolkits and other open sourced learning from our programmes to amplify our reach and impact.
