Join our team

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.

Field Operations Manager

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.
