We’re currently looking for a Digital Community Officer to support our Digital Strategy Manager and the wider Reef-World team to help maximise our digital conservation impact.

The Green Fins initiative drives sustainable behaviours for environmental protection by providing low-cost and practical solutions to local and industry-wide environmental challenges associated with the marine tourism industry. To date, trained Green Fins assessors have verified operators in-person every year. This works but isn’t scalable, so Reef-World is building digital membership for the Green Fins initiative to be delivered by a new digital platform called the Green Fins Hub.

When the Hub launches, the Digital Community Officer will be an active participant in the discussion as a moderator and facilitator while also providing customer service and day to day management of the Hub’s administration. We expect the Green Fins Hub to shape the future of sustainable marine tourism globally, and the Digital Community Officer will be the voice for this. They will also communicate with the Green Fins national teams (usually local government and NGO staff members) to facilitate their interaction with the Hub.

The Digital Community Officer will be passionate about protecting coral reefs and the incredible marine life they support because of their ecological value as well as for the benefit of our stakeholders - local communities, visitors, and future generations.

Reef-World believes that a team with diverse experiences and backgrounds generates richer discussions and more nuanced thinking that will magnify our conservation impact. We strive to be an inclusive workplace where everyone feels welcome and respected. We are an equal opportunity employer and welcome applications from anyone with the required skills and experience: whatever their background. We actively encourage applications from those whose identities reflect the diversity of the communities and networks we serve and whose identities are traditionally underrepresented in the conservation sector.


Please email your CV and a cover letter to apply@reef-world.org. In your application, please include how you meet the job specifications and why you feel you’re the best person to help us boost our global conservation impact.

We will then get back to you after the team has reviewed your application and let you know if we would like to pursue your application. Due to the expected volume of incoming enquiries, the charity does not have the resources to provide feedback on applications that have not been accepted. If you do not hear from us by 3 June 2022, then take note that we have decided not to take your application further, and we wish you the best of luck in your career.

Applications close on 13 May 2022.  Interviews (online) week commencing 16 May 2022.7
