The University of Arizona IPLP Program is Hiring; Indigenous Rights and Protected Areas Campaign Manager

Sept. 14, 2023

The Indigenous Peoples Law and Policy (IPLP) Program at the University of Arizona James E. Rogers College of Law is looking to hire a Campaign Manager to develop and implement an international media, public relations, and education campaign for the IPLP Indigenous Rights and Protected Areas Initiative. The goal of this campaign is to inform and influence authoritative decision-makers, donors, non-governmental organizations, journalists, and other audiences and constituencies on the impact of existing and proposed protected areas and conservation measures on the human rights of Indigenous Peoples. The campaign manager will also be responsible for liaising and coordinating communications and public education efforts with Indigenous communities, organizations, and individuals comprising an Advisory Council to the campaign. Written and spoken proficiency in English is required. Spanish and/or French written and speaking proficiency is preferred. The ideal candidate would also have connections to the Africa and/or Asia region given the geopolitical relevancy of protected areas to those regions. The intended campaign is expected to continue for up to two years through to August 2025. A full-time position on a one-year University of Arizona renewable contract with full benefits can be offered to candidates willing to relocate to Tucson to assume the position. Alternatively, a shorter-term full or part-time consultancy arrangement can be offered if the preferred candidate is unable to relocate or cannot assume a full-time or year-long commitment.

The salary rate/consultancy compensation is dependent on experience and qualifications to assume the responsibilities of the position.

If interested, please submit a CV along with a one to two page statement on prior relevant experience/s for this type of position to Gabriella Brayne, IPLP Bay and Paul Foundations Fellow,

Applications close in two weeks time on Wednesday the 27th of September.
