Joanna French: Overseas Operations Manager

November 2009 - November 2010

I joined Frontier shortly after completing my MSc in Conservation Science at Imperial College. Prior to my MSc I had been working within the marketing communications industry for a number of years and was looking to combine my business experience with my passion for conservation. The Overseas Operations Manager role at Frontier enabled me to do just that!

For the past year I have been running all the day to day operations for Frontiers group projects in Cambodia, Costa Rica, Ghana, Fiji, Madagascar & Tanzania. This has been a thoroughly enjoyable, although at times, a stressful experience! Juggling the needs of the different projects does require amazing organisation skills and the ability to react quickly to any situation. Each and every day is different and rising to the challenges that crop up is something that keeps the job really interesting. It’s been fun working with a group of likeminded individuals and ensuring that I’ve recruited great field staff and seeing them grow into their positions and move the overseas projects forward has been incredibly satisfying.

I’m now moving on to work on my own projects, but I’m sure I will always keep an eye on what’s happening with the Frontier group projects and will avidly await the publications and outcomes of the research work that is being carried out across the various locations.
