Pangea has an ambitious mission: to establish Europe’s first large-scale elephant sanctuary and nature reserve. We will work with zoos, circuses and governments to provide elephants with a home that meets their uniquely complex psychological, physical and social needs, whilst also inspiring social change and political action that in turn leads to the improved welfare and conservation of elephants.  Our recently acquired 1,000-acre estate, deep in the heart of Portugal, will be managed in line with progressive rewilding principles to create an expansive, natural habitat in which both elephants and native wildlife can thrive.

It is now time to launch the next phase of operations, and this includes the recruitment of a passionate, energetic, and tenacious Project Assistant/Executive.

Reporting to the Managing Director, this is an exciting opportunity for a positive, confident, highly organised, flexible, and self-motivated individual who has a passion for elephants and the wider natural world. The successful candidate will be keen to learn and happy to perform a variety of duties that help to drive the project forward, from general administrative tasks through to research, writing content, and reaching out to new and existing donors and partners.
