Welcome to the team!

Thank you so much for your interest in our Global Program in India! We're so excited to have you on board and looking forward to meeting & working with you all over the coming months. It was an incredibly competitive field of applicants and we believe that we selected a diverse team with a variety of skill-sets and experience levels who will compliment each other.

Our hope is that you will learn from one-another, our Global partner organisation SISP and their volunteers, as well as the local community and be able to build a solid foundation for PCFML in India and walk away from this experience having increased your knowledge, skills, as well as your ability to lead and manage a global project.

As a Global Program Coordinator you will be:

- Running all of our projects on the ground in Kovalam and Vizhinjam (as outlined in our 5-year Masterplan);

- Running PCFML's Marine Conservation Centre;

- The key points of contact for PCFML's Indian branch;

- Developing and implementing campaign strategies;

- Managing volunteers / staff and developing workplans, Gantt Charts and rosters for volunteers and staff;

- Writing grants, applying for funding and ensuring that we can keep our projects financially afloat through consistent and expanding local and international funding opportunities;

- Managing our bank accounts;

- Liaising with our Indian-based Directors to ensure strong local governance;
