The Environmental Data Analyst will manage, interpret, and present the Trust's data effectively. This role will increase the Trust’s ability to prioritise activities and projects, evaluate change, and report the impact and outcomes of our work. Through this role you’ll be handling, analysing, and presenting data on land use, habitats, species, opportunities, and risks to support a successful environmental improvement programme.

You will be collating, managing, analysing, and presenting environmental/spatial data to support the Calder Rivers Trust team. This will involve using ArcGIS pro and other database management tools to ensure consistent information management, and the creation and maintenance of a data catalogue.

A core function of your role will be managing the range of data used by the team, and supporting compliance with licensing, e.g. environmental and spatial data ranging from national data (OGL) to sensitive local data on habitat and species, and data collected by the Calder Rivers Trust team. You will be working with this data to help the Trust’s team make effective decisions, and evaluate environmental change.

You will be using Geographical Information Systems and other approaches to interrogate environmental data, finding unseen pressures and opportunities, highlighting overlapping priorities, and supporting decision-making.

You will be supporting development of our data collection campaigns, bringing understanding of data standards and statistical approaches—informed by novel and good practice examples from across the environmental sector.

You will be enabling Calder Rivers Trust to communicate about activities through producing clear and informative visual data representations, e.g. maps, interactive StoryMaps, and other graphics.

You will also be supporting conversations with Calder Rivers Trust’s partners to enable effective data sharing, interpretation, and presentation while maintaining compliance with data licensing.

You’ll help us continue to develop a brave, confident, capable, and well-respected organisation—that people want to work with and for. You will have your finger on the pulse of the relevant things happening within the catchment, the Rivers Trust movement, and generally across the sector.

This role is part of the Calder and Colne Landscape Links DEFRA Landscape Recovery Project.
