TL2 Conservation Project Leader

DR Congo

The TL2 Project is an initiative of the Lukuru Foundation that supports conservation in and around Lomami National Park (PNL) in DR Congo. As the Programme Leaders anticipate their retirement in the next few years, FZS is assuming responsibility for support to PNL in the long-term and gradually taking over all project activities from the Lukuru Foundation/TL2.
To ensure a smooth transition from the Lukuru Foundation to FZS and strong leadership for the existing team in PNL after the transition, FZS is looking for a highly motivated Project Leader to work in and around PNL.

Over a 3-5 year period, you will learn, support and gradually assume the responsibilities of the TL2 Programme Leaders. Ultimately this will involve co-ordination and responsibility for all FZS operations and budgets as well as staff within the PNL and buffer zones. The project supports ICCN management activities and is implemented in close collaboration with ICCN, using funds from German and US Development funds and other private and public donors.




An attractive salary package based on our in-country or international employment schemes. An initial two-year contract is standard practice, with the perspective of a long-term position in an internationally recognized conservation organization.

Probation period is 6 months.
