Our client is a grassroots movement of people from a wide range of backgrounds and all walks of life, who share a set of common beliefs. It has more than of 850,000 members, including 200,000 junior members, 38,000 volunteers and 2,800 staff across the UK across 46 locally independent trusts and the Royal Society. They work in every part of the UK, on Alderney and the Isle of Man. The movement's central charity leads the development of the movement and represents the interests of the movement whenever a strong united voice is required.

The Trusts are developing a new Partnership Strategy that reflects the challenge of the climate and biodiversity crises we face. As part of this new strategic ambition, the Trust needs to be able to collect, store and analyse geographic data, providing common GIS resources for the Trusts and develop cross-regional, nation and UK data. The post supports three of the five major transformations that the strategy will facilitate:

  • Levelling up: Supporting and developing Trusts as strong and effective independent actors. The level of GIS sophistication across the Trusts is variable. They need to ensure that all Trusts have access to effective GIS functionality.
  • Effective movement: Working effectively as a distributed network and collective movement. Securing nature's recovery across the UK, Alderney and Isle of Man requires data collection and analysis at a range of spatial levels - local, county, nation and UK - requiring spatial data management to work across Trust boundaries.
  • Digital transformation: Undergoing a 'root and branch' digital transformation including a transformation in the Trusts' ability to deploy spatial data.

The Trusts value courage, respect, integrity, trust and responsibility. Whilst they are passionate in promoting their aims, they are not judgemental and are inclusive. They want their people to be as diverse as nature, so they particularly encourage applications from people who are underrepresented within their sector, including people from minority backgrounds and people with disabilities. They are committed to creating a movement that recognises and truly values individual differences and identities.

As a Disability Confident employer, they are committed to offering an interview to anyone with a disability that meets all the essential criteria for the post.
