Conservation Careers Fair

WCP Zambia facilitates an annual Conservation Careers Fair (CCF) in Zambia. Starting in 2018, it is now hugely popular with job seekers. The fair demonstrates conservation’s role in the economy, providing sustainable career paths for many Zambians.

Over 50 conservation organisations working in Zambia attend the fair, providing information about potential employment opportunities to over 1,000 jobseekers comprising undergraduate, graduate and other participants. Motivational talks from conservationists and other influencers help participants learn more about the sector. Employment agencies provide recruitment advice such as CV writing and interview skills.

The event supports conservation organisations in Zambia, employing locally as much as possible. It assists students looking for jobs in knowing how to best position themselves for the roles that interest them.

Many graduates have found jobs through the fair and are now trailblazers in the conservation sector, leading and implementing conservation field activities
