Lang Tengah Turtle Watch (LTTW) was founded as a conservation organisation in 2013 with the aim to help save sea turtles – predominantly green turtles, and a small number of hawksbill turtles – from extinction at Lang Tengah Island. LTTW is looking for a passionate and dedicated individual, who already has some experience in the conservation sector and is looking to take on a volunteer coordinator role at our island-based project, off the East Coast of Peninsular Malaysia. You will be living on the job site – eating, sleeping and working in our jungle camp with our team of volunteers and project staff.
Position available: 1st March – 31st October 2023
Your main role will be to become a fully integrated team member, which may include, but is not limited to, the following:
Project Base & Accommodation
You need to feel comfortable living in a stripped-back and open-air camp, which lies slightly recessed behind the secluded beach of Turtle Bay. Think rustic, jungle living–bucket showers and campfires.
The following criteria are also desirable for potential applicants:
There will be a one-month probation period during which you will be given an allowance each month and subjected to performance reviews. Food and accommodation costs whilst on site, as well as in-country road travel to and from project sites will also be covered. You will also receive a monthly stipend. You will be living in the camp alongside our other team members and volunteers. Conditions on camp are basic, so you need to be comfortable with living in this environment, and you will have a 5D4N break from the island every 4 weeks. Although you will be based at our island project site there may also be opportunities to visit other project sites during the season. The season runs from mid-February until the end of October.
If you feel you’re the right person to be part of our young, passionate and dynamic team of conservationists, please send a copy of your C.V., a cover letter and details of two referees to our Principal Officer, Seh Ling, at firstname.lastname@example.org with LT Volunteer Coordinator as the subject heading. Candidate will be interviewed on a rolling basis until the position is filled.
