Project Manager, Water Risk Filter

The World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF) is one of the world’s most important nature protection organisations. With projects in more than a hundred countries, our mission is to preserve the world’s biological diversity. At the same time, we aim to strengthen people’s awareness of the need to deal responsibly with the natural resources that provide the basis for life itself – which also includes a sustainable economy. More than five million people support us by donating money or by becoming personally involved.

Globally, water resources are increasingly under stress. As companies need water for their value creation, they have a clear interest of reducing the water risks they are facing. Since 10 years, WWF has been working on finding solutions to corporate water risks. With the Water Risk Filter, we have developed a tool that enables companies to analyse and evaluate as well as provide solutions. We want to make sure that in the future the tool continues to enable companies and economic players to tackle their water risks in a meaningful manner.

In close cooperation with the WWF international Water Practice, our department for Water and Forests in Berlin is looking – as soon as possible in full-time employment with a limited contract for 3 years – for a
