The South Okanagan-Similkameen region covers an area over 10,000 km2 and is renowned for its unique landscapes and biodiversity, including a significant concentration of ecosystems and species that are rare, and at risk in Canada.
The South Okanagan-Similkameen Conservation Program (SOSCP) is a partnership initiative of diverse government and non-government organizations with shared interests in biodiversity conservation working together on shared goals.
SOSCP’s conservation strategy is collaborative, rather than advocacy centred. The program is positioned around six pillars of focus, including applying and advancing western science and Traditional Ecological Knowledge to conservation practice, voluntary stewardship, sustainable land use, outreach and education, and acquisition of ecologically important lands. The program was established initially as a forum to advance science-based conservation, to share information, resources and to support and coordinate the efforts of the member partners. Now in its 20th year, the partnership continues to advance collective strategies for conservation, provides a forum for partner collaboration and delivers on key areas of conservation need.
The SOSCP is seeking a dynamic and skilled professional to lead and manage a unique partnership of diverse organizations working to advance biodiversity conservation goals. As an independent contractor, you will work closely with the SOSCP Executive, and report to the SOSCP Chair (Contract Manager).
