Wildlife Reserve Marketing Intern – African Conservation Foundation

African-Conservation-Foundation-logoABOUT KUTI WILDLIFE RESERVE

Kuti Wildlife Reserve is a stunning 2000 hectare reserve located close to Salima, just an hour and a half from Malawi’s capital city Lilongwe, and 30 minutes from Lake Malawi!

Set up as a wildlife reserve in 2005, Kuti aims to protect the habitats and wildlife within the reserve, whist benefiting the communities that surround it. Dedicated to supporting the local villages and educating on matters of sustainable living we hope to change perceptions towards wildlife and conservation. As a not-for-profit organisation all the revenue generated through our eco-tourism goes back into the project and helps to fund our community project work.


You will report to the Manager, focusing on increasing awareness of Kuti’s project and bringing in revenue to help them continue with their work. Your responsibilities will include:

  • Helping to recruit direct volunteers through new marketing channels.
  • Increasing interest in Kuti’s project and acquiring beneficial links through social media/developing blogs etc.
  • Increasing local visitation through tactical marketing, in particular for groups/organisations.
  • Creating/developing ideas to improve the visitor experience.
  • Running and devising fundraising events
  • Re-invigorating Kuti’s “friends”/membership scheme
  • Seeking out local and international press coverage and writing articles for local and international publications.
  • Managing volunteers on marketing projects/events/any of the above topics.


In addition to the long list of qualities listed above, you will also need at least 1 years’ experience in marketing/sales. Excellent copywriting skills and computer literacy are a must, at the very least in Word, Powerpoint, Publisher and Excel. Design and web editing skills, photography and photo-shop knowledge are also highly desirable.


Kuti is looking to fill the role to start in September and you will need to commit to the role for 6 months, working a 6 day working week with a long weekend off every month. Your accommodation will be provided inside the reserve, amongst management and other staff houses. You will be living in a local-style volunteer house, with solar power and private facilities. You will have your own local style kitchen, cooking on fire stoves, or you may join our volunteers with chef-cooked meals twice a day, costing just $17 per week! Kuti staff will collect you from the airport and arrange for transfers to Kuti but all other expenses including flights, visas and insurance are your responsibility.
