Are you an experienced GIS professional looking for a new and exciting challenge in the environmental NGO sector and passionate about the role of community organisations in delivering a more sustainable future for our environment?

The Rivers Trust (RT) is looking for an environmental scientist with strong GIS and data analysis skills to join the existing eight members of the Data & Evidence team. Working alongside experienced RT staff and partners, you will provide technical support and knowledge-sharing solutions to facilitate the use of data and evidence for integrated catchment management in the UK, Ireland and Europe.

RT is the umbrella body for the Rivers Trust movement, representing over 60 independent Rivers Trusts in England, Wales and the island of Ireland, and is the lead co-ordinator for community-based river catchment management as part of the Catchment Based Approach, which places community involvement at the heart of sustainable catchment management planning. Subsidiarity is a core value within RT and means that we support our members to deliver practical and sustainable solutions to environmental issues.

The successful candidate will be part of a dynamic, enthusiastic and rapidly growing team and will contribute to building the technical and delivery capacity of the Rivers Trusts movement. You will work within the Data & Evidence team in RT and alongside technical staff from across the wider movement.

The Rivers Trust is committed to promoting equality, diversity and inclusion (EDI) within our movement, as this is fundamental to achieving our core aims. Applications from diversity candidates are actively encouraged.

The role includes taking responsibility for:

  • Managing the Enterprise Level Agreement for the rivers trust movement.
  • Managing the technical spatial analysis and data management support and training for the rivers trust movement.
  • Providing GIS support for Catchment-Based Approach (CaBA) and potentially Nature Recovery Network (NRN) partnerships in England.
  • Providing technical support and analysis for the Catchment Monitoring Cooperative, an initiative which will allow citizen science to play a significant role in the management of the UK's rivers.
