Internship opportunities

From time to time, TBC employs interns to give talented aMadagascarnd promising graduates an insight into the world of business and biodiversity and to share our passion for achieving sustainable development. We are particularly keen to hear from individuals who intend to pursue their conservation careers in Africa, Asia-Pacific or Latin America.

TBC’s internship programme aims to give promising graduates an insight into the world of business and biodiversity and to share our passion for achieving a sustainable approach to development. We expect interns to make a significant contribution to TBC’s work at the same time as exploring their own particular biodiversity or ecosystem services interests. The opportunity is initially offered on a three-month basis (either full- or part-time), with the potential of a further three-month extension.

Depending on individual interests and experience, and project availability, tasks may include specific project inputs, discrete science/policy assignments (including background research, data compilation/analysis, and writing technical or broader-communication pieces), and ‘shadowing’ TBC staff on particular projects.

We are looking for outstanding graduates and postgraduates who have a clear and strong interest in developing a career in the field of biodiversity management.
