Enterprise Development Officer
Tanzania People & Wildlife Fund (TPW) is a local nonprofit organization dedicated to the conservation of wildlife
and important natural habitats through a community-driven approach. TPW helps rural communities develop
their skills and abilities to protect natural resources in a manner that maximizes their benefits from these
landscapes while also preserving ecological integrity. Emphasizing the critical importance of community-led
initiatives, the organization provides information, training and service level support to its rural constituencies to
strengthen local institutions and community-driven actions for natural resource management and wildlife
conservation.
TPW operates from the Noloholo Environmental Center on the Maasai Steppe in northern Tanzania. Sharing a
boundary with Tarangire National Park, this center acts as TPW’s regional headquarters as well as an educational
center where rural community members improve their understanding of the environment and develop hands-on
skills in natural resource management. From this center, TPW operates programs in four major programmatic
areas: 1) wildlife conservation and human-wildlife conflict prevention, (2) youth environmental education and
adult capacity building & training, (3) natural resource conservation and rangeland management, and (4)
environmentally-sustainable conservation enterprise and development.
Position Description:
TPW is looking for a passionate, energetic and hard-working individual to fill the position of Enterprise
Development Officer. This person will be engaged in three major components of TPW’s conservation enterprise
and community development programs: 1) the marketing and distribution of women’s bee-keeping products, 2)
the development and marketing of community-managed conservation areas and/or community wildlife-based
tourism projects, and 3) the development of the Noloholo Environmental Center’s global outreach programs.
Initially, a strong emphasis will be on the women’s bee-keeping program where an immediate need for the

coordinate and interact closely with its bee-keeping program officer and assistants as well as other team

diverse stakeholders. This position will be stationed at the Noloholo Environmental Center and will require
travel to remote program areas, safari camps and lodges, and urban marketplaces. We anticipate the position
will require equal amounts of time for program development, marketing and distribution of products (when
applicable), and reporting.

community level in support of its community-based conservation model

and future additional by-products (candles, soap, etc.)

and additional outreach projects
• Act as a public emissary of TPW’s programs, particularly in terms of its women’s initiative, and a role
model/community trainer for rural capacity building with a focus on women
Qualifications:

and/or finance. We are looking for an individual with the ability to work quickly with exceptional leadership and
