Malawi’s leading conservation NGO, Lilongwe Wildlife Trust, is looking for a dynamic environmental education specialist to oversee an exciting project that aims to develop a gold-standard programme for inspiring the next generation of conservationists within Malawi.

Lilongwe Wildlife Trust is uniquely positioned to act as the country’s leading facility for conservation education. Each year our education team and award-winning sanctuary – the Lilongwe Wildlife Centre – delivers environmental education to thousands of school children across the country. To date, our bespoke educational programme has reached over 175,000 school children across Malawi.

We are seeking an experienced and visionary education specialist with experience of designing high-impact environmental education programmes, ideally in both classroom and ‘experiential’ settings (e.g. education centres). Specific experience of working within the Southern African context is a plus, but not essential. We are open to proposals regarding the approach and budget, although you will need to spend at least some time in Malawi within the short-term contract.

There are two strands of work to this consultancy, outlined in the terms of reference on the link below. Ideally we would like one person to manage both, but would also consider separating the strands if necessary.

To register your interest, please send through a CV, and a cover letter including details of your availability and day rates by 6th December 2019 to We will then be in touch by 13th December to discuss next steps.
