Description of Duties:
The Division of Habitat and Species Conservation's Office of Conservation Planning Services, is seeking a fish and wildlife professional to provide technical assistance to stakeholders and partner agencies for land use planning activities. The position requires an understanding of fish and wildlife ecology and management needs, as well as a practical knowledge of native habitat management and recovery techniques suited to Florida landscapes. Candidates will be expected to demonstrate their proficiency in technical writing and the publication of maps using GIS software during the interview process. The ideal candidate will have mastered these knowledge, skills, and abilities and has land management, species management, or habitat restoration experience.
This position serves as staff to the Land Use Planning (LUP) Program in the Division of Habitat and Species Conservation's Office of Conservation Planning Services (CPS). CPS provides technical assistance to a wide array of private and public sector landowners and local, state, and federal governmental entities on conservation-related issues. The LUP Program coordinates collaborative consultations for large land use planning efforts that have the potential to impact fish and wildlife resources, particularly those that anticipate going through a regulatory process (e.g. Siting Coordination projects, County Comprehensive Plan amendments, State 404, Environmental Resource Permits, major watershed initiatives, etc.). This work involves close coordination and collaboration with other fish and wildlife professionals and stakeholders, both internal and external to the agency, biological data analysis, report-writing, and monitoring and evaluating work plan outcomes. This position is responsible for assisting with implementation of special initiatives related to conflict wildlife issues, imperiled species management related to regulated land and water use, and innovative techniques for private lands conservation. Responsibilities also include assisting the LUP Program Administrators with short- and long-term LUP planning and reporting, and the coordination of LUP operational activities and programs with other agency sections, divisions and offices and external stakeholders.
The position is responsible for timely and accurate processing and or approval, as appropriate, of vendor invoices and warrants for payment of goods received or services rendered to avoid automatic interest penalty payments to said vendors. It is responsible for adhering to the provisions and requirements of Section 215.422, F.S., related to State Comptroller's rules, as well as Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission invoice processing and warrant distribution procedures. Responsibilities may include legislative interactions. The position is expected to courteously assist Commission constituents to resolve questions or problems they may have in matters relating to the Commission, its programs or fish and wildlife conservation, generally. It is expected to actively garner public support for agency objectives and programs by serving Florida's citizens in a positive and proactive manner.
Desired Minimum Requirements:
Minimum of a bachelor's degree in biology, wildlife or fisheries management, zoology, environmental sciences or other closely related curriculum, graduate degree and two years of professional experience preferred. Candidates must have experience writing and reviewing technical documents, must have experience with imperiled species or their habitats, and should be familiar with land use applications and/or permits. Successful candidates will have experience collaborating with entities of varying interests and be able to capably manage conflict. A cover letter and resume should be included with the application package.
