World  Wildlife Fund (WWF), the global conservation organization, seeks a  Senior Program Officer (SPO) to conduct appropriate outreach to industry  leaders associated  with the collection, export, import, wholesale, or retail sale of coral  and coral reef wildlife, and products made from coral and coral reef  wildlife. This outreach will implement the strategies of a  four-organization coalition seeking to ensure the long-term  health and resilience of the world’s coral reef ecosystems through  reform of U.S. trade policies and practices.
 The SPO will report to the WWF-US Director of Business and Industry, and  work closely with WWF-US’s Senior Program Officer for Marine and  Fisheries Policy. The SPO will coordinate closely with campaign partners  (Environmental Defense Fund, Defenders of Wildlife,  and Humane Society) to prioritize business targets for outreach,  develop appropriate messages, engage targeted businesses, and generate  support in the business community for reform.
 An advanced degree or equivalent experience in law, policy or business  is required. 3-5 years experience engaging businesses in conservation  issues and working closely with conservation NGOs is also required.  Knowledge of or willingness to learn emerging issues  at the interface of conservation, business and social science,  especially as they relate to global wildlife trade (e.g., consumer  preference, supply/demand relationships, market incentives, and  mariculture technology) is necessary. Must have excellent relationship  building abilities, a professional style, and the ability to engage  senior level leaders and influentials. Must also have strong written and  verbal communications skills, excellent organizational skills, and the  ability to work well with a broad team. Must  be a creative thinker and problem-solver, have negotiation and  facilitation skills, and be able to travel nationally and  internationally.
