Daniel  Davies Overseas Operations Manager

Daniel Davies - Overseas Operations Manager

After completing my MSc in International Development in 2010, I joined Frontier as an Overseas Ops Intern in their London Headquarters. Follwoing a successful 6 months in the role, I was offered the amazing opportunity to head out to the Costa Rica programme as Project Coordinator. Managing the Costa Rica project for a year was one of the most amazing experiences I have had to date and I have remained forever grateful to Frontier for the opportunity.

After a few years working within renewable energy and heading to run another conservation project out in the Seychelles, I returned to London to look for a higher managerial role that would focus on remote project management of conservation and sustainable development projects. Returning to work with Frontier again was an easy decision and the role of Overseas Operations Manager was a excellent opportunity.

In my role I am responsible for managing the operations and administration of Frontier’s overseas conservation, teaching & community projects for Costa Rica, Belize, Cambodia and the Ethical Adventure Trails. My tasks includes the day to day support for the field projects including budgets, equipment, communications, procurement, staff and transportation and also comprises a large element of human resources for both the overseas projects and London HQ.

Sylvie Le Group Projects Coordinator

Sylvie Le - Group Projects Coordinator

I have been addicted to travelling since I was young. I have grown up in France, and I got the chance to frequently go to Asian countries. I have also improved my English while living in America, Australia and New Zealand for a few months. Last year I volunteered in a remote Filipino village and conducted several environmental and community development projects. It was such a great humanitarian experience and I have made friends for life in such a beautiful country.

Going abroad developed my passion for discovering new cultures, meeting new people and also for the environment and wildlife.

Once back in Europe, I decided to move to London where I have found the Project Coordinator position with Frontier. Joining an NGO focusing on conservation issues and wildlife, but also on community development is very rewarding. Furthermore, I now understand how the projects are managed and coordinated, which is very interesting for me, as I would like to pursue my career in environmental projects management.

Lucia Ruggiero Partner Projects Volunter Coordinator

Lucia Ruggiero - Partner Projects Volunter Coordinator

What is your passion? I was asked this question so many times during my all life and for so long I did not how to answer it. The problem was that I focused on finding one while I always had many! Travelling, wildlife & environmental conservation, community development are my main passions.

My constant desire to travel the world and to live in a sustainable way discovering new cultures has grown within me in these last years. After graduating in Political Science & International Relations it was time for me to leave my nest. The destination? Frontier, in London.

My time at Frontier as Partner Project Volunteer Coordinator has given me a great inspiration on what I would like to achieve in the future. Working for a non-profit conservation and development NGO it is rewarding and satisfying. I really enjoy helping the others to get the best outcome from their experience and also having the chance to create new partnerships with organisations from all around the world is very stimulating.


Fernanda Baraybar Volunteer Advisor

Fernanda Baraybar - Volunteer Advisor

Coming from Peru and Venezuela I have spent my life aware of the struggles in the world. Since I was very young I enjoyed doing volunteer work with various orphanages and environmental initiatives throughout South America. I was also very lucky to complete my university studies in Switzerland in a school that promotes travel and worldwide knowledge. Visiting various countries such as South Korea, Malawi, Greece, Malaysia and more, I decided to make my passion for travelling and volunteering my career. I searched to implement my studies of marketing and events with an organization that works to help improve the world. Frontier is a great place to do both and I am extremely excited to be a part of the team!


Steven Bratten Overseas Operations Officer

Steven Bratten - Overseas Operations Officer

While studying Marine & Freshwater Biology at University, I originally planned to move into research but grew increasingly concerned and shocked with the scale and impact of the damage that humans are causing to the environment. Slowly but surely I realised that I would not be comfortable sitting in a lab and analysing data, I knew that I had to go down the NGO path and work for an organisation which I knew was doing good work on the ground as well as conducting solid scientific research in remote and often threatened areas in the natural world. After volunteering and working for environmental NGO’s in several developing countries I felt that I was ready to join the operations team of a well-established, international NGO. Frontier was my natural first choice. Working for Frontier is never boring, always exciting and endlessly rewarding.
