The Wildlife Habitat Council (WHC) promotes and certifies habitat conservation and management on corporate lands through partnerships and education. Its principle vehicle is WHC Conservation Certification that recognizes meaningful and committed wildlife habitat management and conservation education programs. The Conservation Certification‘s standards are built on best practices of global recognition programs, reflects contemporary conservation efforts and aligns our collective work with the future of biodiversity globally.
The Certification and Technology Department manages Conservation Certification including development of the standards and their implementation through an application system as well as processes to review applications against the standard. These processes are enabled by the WHC Conservation Certification website that provides integrated data management.
The Reviewer, Conservation Certification is a key part of WHC Conservation Certification. The Reviewer provides independent, third party analysis of corporate applications for WHC Conservation Certification by (1) reading corporate applications, (2) scoring the applications and (3) providing objective justification for the scores given. This process is migrating from a manual system to the WHC Conservation Certification website, allowing for improved accuracy and speed. Reviewers receive background reading and training on WHC Conservation Certification, the website and WHC’s culture. The Reviewer reports to the Manager, Conservation Certification.
WHC is building global a network of Reviewers. The network will consist of experts in different specialties and geographies. Please see the Project Guidances for a full list of the disciplines required. We expect WHC’s need for part time (on demand) Reviewers to grow in the coming years. In addition, we are recruiting full-time, temporary support in our Silver Spring, MD office for this calendar year.
To apply, please submit a resume and a cover letter expressing your interest to firstname.lastname@example.org. Applications are accepted on a rolling basis and due to the volume of applications only qualified applicants will be contacted.
