Rewilding Britain wants to see rewilding flourishing across Britain - reconnecting us with the natural world, sustaining communities and tackling the climate emergency and extinction crisis. Established in 2014 as the only national rewilding charity in Britain, we champion rewilding, acting as a catalyst for debate and action and demonstrating the power of nature to address the enormous threats we face.
In 2021 we launched the Rewilding Network – a place for landowners, land managers and project managers who are rewilding land and sea. After only 12 months the network already has 500 projects covering over 120,000 ha of land, and is growing rapidly. We also have an active and growing supporter and donor base. With this growth comes increasing volumes and complexity of data that can be utilised and there is a need to evolve and join-up the technology systems that support our operations. We are looking for somebody to join our team who will proactively manage both data and systems and lead the charge within these areas.
Data includes both information about individuals and projects as well as a variety of rewilding site monitoring information and mapping data. It is increasingly important that we proactively manage the way that data is processed (collected, stored, extracted, summarised) such that the data is useful to us on an ongoing basis and for decision making. We also need to ensure we continue to remain compliant with data protection regulations.
There are a number of areas where technology systems will enable us to be more effective and efficient as an organisation. We have recently implemented a new customer relationship management tool and there are many opportunities to make full use of this tool and its integration with other systems. This role will span oversight of third parties performing development on our behalf as well as opportunities to be hands-on with some development in house.
If you think you have the skills, drive and determination to join our team, we’d like to hear from you.
