What we're looking for
We are looking for someone to join our team and help us manage data in its paper, electronic spreadsheet and digitally mapped formats. Most data are held on Merlin, RSPB's bespoke ESRI based mapping and Geographic Information System (GIS). Merlin is home to a vast amount and variety of our conservation Data. You will help digitise data from paper survey forms and maps as well as organise spreadsheets so they can be easily interpreted for analysis in research studies. You will also help us manage our planning, consultation and casework module within Merlin. The main tasks in this entail creating new cases and updating existing cases under the guidance of our casework officer. Good evidence underpins all our conservation work and the basis of this is good data. It is important that we make our data available (in an electronic format) and share it within the RSPB, and externally in a timely manner so that it can be used effectively for nature conservation.
