Thank you for your interest in working with Osa Conservation. Staff openings are available periodically and a number of volunteer and internship positions are available year-round. Read the listings below for current opportunities.
Maintaining the infrastructure of all of the buildings and supply lines as well as maintaining property boundaries, roads, and trails requires a constant effort. There is a team of staff devoted to this upkeep. We seek a Field Operations Manager who will supervise this team and who will optimize their efforts to provide general maintenance as well as timely interventions to solve short-term crises, such as the breakage of a waterline. The ideal candidate will have managed a complex property-based operation, such as a large farm, ecolodge, or some other property that faces similar challenges and logistics, maintenance, and installation of infrastructure. A practical understanding of machinery, water systems, electrical systems, building maintenance, road maintenance, and working with a team of people is required. The individual must be well organized and energetic and lead by example in the field. This is not a desk job that can be accomplished by sitting in front of a computer.
Volunteers are accepted year-round for our sea turtle and general volunteer programs. For more information on our volunteer opportunities, send an email to [email protected]
Field assistant positions are posted according to availability but we have rolling application acceptance. These positions are 3 months – 1-year opportunities for post-grad students interested in hands-on field experience in tropical biology, ecology, sustainable agriculture, community involvement, and more!
