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.

World Wildlife Fund-United States (WWF US), one of the world’s leading environment organizations, seeks a Senior Vice President, Climate Change to lead its dynamic and growing body of work to fight the climate crisis. Climate change threatens to compound the other threats that confront nature and to undermine human welfare. Without immediate and concerted action to both decarbonize economies and adapt to the unavoidable impacts of climate change, the loss of biodiversity will continue unabated and people reliant on nature and nature’s services for their well-being will face severe, and for many, catastrophic consequences.
WWF’s climate goal is to foster climate-resilient, low carbon development pathways. We seek to mobilize and strengthen climate mitigation and adaptation action at all levels, from individual citizens and rural communities, to the largest multinational corporations and the US Federal Government. Our efforts are bolstered by WWF’s reputation and deep field experience in the arenas of nature conservation and sustainable development; its global reach and engagement with governments and national and international policy processes; strong relationships and credibility with the private sector; thought leadership grounded in the best available science; and its unparalleled outreach capabilities through traditional and social media.
Founded in 1961, WWF is a huge network of non-governmental environment organizations, with 6,500 staff operating in more than 100 countries, some 6 million members, and 22 million Facebook and 14 million Twitter followers worldwide. WWF’s efforts are grounded in its work with local communities, businesses and governments and other actors to conserve and restore nature and secure sustainable development for people in priority places around the world. We also work extensively with major private and public institutions to reduce the impacts of climate change, infrastructure projects, unsustainable food production, and consumption on nature and people. In 2016, WWF launched a new global strategy to help the nations, states, and cities of the world achieve the Sustainable Development Goals, Paris Climate Agreement, and Convention on Biological Diversity. WWF works through strong country programs, linked through global practices, to drive local innovation and large-scale solutions that seek to safeguard nature and nature’s contribution to people.
