We are looking for a JEDI specialist with a background in Conservation/Environmental Science that has experience facilitating workshops, creating JEDI-centered coursework, and has incorporated JEDI into conservation planning. This position will take the lead on creating JEDI-focused workshops and facilitating them for conservation-minded companies.

This includes projects such as Lacy Consulting Services’ work in Mexico conserving bat populations through community engagement, projects in the Bahamas facilitating working relationships between fishers and law enforcement to prevent poaching and create marine protected areas, and building trust between diverse, BIPOC farmers and conservation organizations across North America. This position will expand their strengths to encompass work such as JEDI in conservation programming, facilitation, and taking the lead on new projects.

As the work level alters between projects, this position will be hourly and part-time. For the 6-month contract, the JEDI in Conservation Specialist will make $35/hour for up to 20 hours/week to start. As a startup business, we do require a level of investment and trust built before continuing on past the initial 6-month contract. Depending on our level of project work after 6 months, this contract may be extended and put into a full-time, salaried position.

The contract is subject to performance review and the employer will provide a 30-day notice to terminate if the contractor is not meeting performance standards which will include both tangible and intangible project and workplace metrics.
