GIS Analyst

SERT is seeking a highly competent Geographical Information Systems (GIS) professional with a passion for the natural environment to join our growing team.

This is a role dedicated to data, evidence and GIS. The primary purpose of the position is to underpin the evidence-based approach taken by the Trust by managing, analysing and communicating spatial data to inform effective river catchment management. You will lead on developing opportunities for the Trust to work with others and develop partnership projects, by building relationships with others whose objectives align with our own, such as Local Authorities, Environmental NGOs, water companies etc.

By applying and demonstrating the value of using modern spatial analysis, modelling and emerging technology to the problems we face in addressing the issues impacting our rivers and catchments, you will identify opportunities for business development with our partners and support initiatives to raise funds to expand the GIS function of the Trust. Whilst being part of a vibrant and dynamic organisation, you will also support colleagues to interrogate, analyse, visualise and present data to support the ecosystem services/natural capital planning and integrated catchment management activities of the Trust and the Catchment Partnerships that it hosts.

We are seeking a personable, adaptable and organised GIS professional with an eye for detail and an associated interest and specialism in either IT, statistics, programming, web development or interactive mapping. This position will suit a self-starter with individual initiative who is comfortable setting priorities and managing simultaneous tasks. We welcome innovative, creative individuals who want to apply their excellent data analysis and visualisation skills, working as part of a multi-disciplinary team and bringing their own ideas to help the Trust deliver its mission of healthy rivers for all.

We would be interested to hear about your skills and interests and how you would like to develop this role and the application of spatial analysis across the Trust in the future. This is an exciting opportunity that will suit a natural leader and great communicator who will help lead the development of GIS and IT systems in a growing and dynamic organisation making a real difference for the environment.
