World Wildlife Fund (WWF), one of the world’s leading conservation organization, seeks a Program Manager for our Sustainable Ranching Initiative at our Northern Great Plains (NGP) Program office in Bozeman, MT office. The Program Manager will oversee the Sustainable Ranching Initiative in the NGP with the goal of avoiding the conversion of grasslands to croplands across the region by enhancing the environmental, economic, and social viability of grass-based enterprises.

The Program Manager will do this by: leading a team of 2-4 employees; developing and prioritizing strategies to meet the program’s objectives; measuring progress toward program goals; designing and implementing a variety of programs focused on improving ranch management (environmentally, economically, and socially); developing and scaling financial solutions to maintain grass-based enterprises; and maintaining and building community resilience.
The need to protect and restore the rich bounty of life on Earth has never been greater, or more urgent. Wildlife populations have declined dramatically over the last fifty years. The devastating impacts of climate change – from rising seas to raging wildfires – threaten communities and national economies. As demand for food, water, and energy rises, more people face the specter of collapsing ecosystems and dwindling resources. The time for change is now and substantial action is needed to change course. Together, we can address the greatest threats to life on this planet and protect the natural resources that sustain and inspire us.
Over the last half century, WWF has helped drive large-scale solutions to our greatest conservation challenges. And one of the central pillars of achieving our mission is partnerships with the US government (USG) to influence policies and programs that help protect the world’s most important places, the bio-diversity they sustain, and the communities who inhabit them. The leadership role the US government plays to ensure the continued survival of wildlife, wild places, and communities around the globe cannot be understated, and we are making progress.
To that end, we are looking for a Senior Vice President (SVP) of Policy and Government Affairs to champion WWF’s engagement with the Executive and Congressional branches of the USG. This individual will support WWF’s mission to protect the natural world—and the communities it sustains—in the following ways:
- Develop transformational partnerships with key Congressional and Administration leaders, key Congressional Committees and major governmental agencies like the US Agency for International Development (USAID) and the Department of the Interior
- Mobilize and secure funding from US governmental agencies and Congress to strengthen conservation in the United States and around the world
- Drive policy changes to help achieve conservation results in priority landscapes like the Amazon and the Arctic
- Engage the public on issues where their advocacy can drive meaningful change, working closely with the communications, advocacy, and social media teams at WWF
- Contribute advice and insights to the major programmatic and fundraising departments across the organization to help WWF achieve its strategic goals
The SVP manages 4 direct reports. This person is also a member of WWF’s Senior Management Team and is expected to collaborate with colleagues across our global network.
