CONAPAC (Conservación a la Naturaleza Amazónica del Perú, A.C.) is seeking a full-time in-country executive administrator to manage all aspects of the NGO. Based in Iquitos, Peru, the director will work collaboratively with our principal partner--Amazon Explorama Lodges--and our primary financial partner in the United States--The Detroit Zoological Society--plus a hands-on board of directors. The administrator will be in charge of all aspects of CONAPAC, working directly with a small full-time staff, handling project planning and oversight, budget planning and management, communication with donor partners, marketing and promotion, in-country public relations through Amazon Explorama Lodges, social media and coordination of activities for periodic volunteers.
The CONAPAC administrator will collaborate with and report directly to the principal owner of Explorama Lodges on a regular basis. CONAPAC's office is housed within the main offices of Explorama in Iquitos.
Normal work hours are full-time, Monday through Friday and half-day on Saturday when in the city. Fieldwork schedules adjust as needed. Time is divided between city time (about 70%) and field time in river communities (about 30%), however this can vary from one month or year to the next, depending on circumstances. Almost all of CONAPAC's projects are executed in the field.
One month paid vacation, taken in two week intervals or all at once.

Housing is not included but there are many affordable locations within walking distance of the office. When doing fieldwork, all CONAPAC employees travel on either CONAPAC or Explorama boats.
