What we're looking for
Merlin is the RSPB's Geographic Information System (GIS) and mapping system and holds our species and sites data. It contains millions of species, site, habitat, casework and species protection records, as well as providing a means to access a huge range of external datasets. We need someone to keep this in top condition to help support our projects/reserves! We need help to make sure that our datasets are up to date. This position will primarily involve inputting data into Merlin and there are a number of projects that we need help with. For example, work might involve corn bunting species data, reserve habitat data, and will change depending on the availability of work at the time. We use Merlin to keep track of our progress against our targets and requires weekly updating of what work has been done on the reserves. This allows us to report annually on the success of the year and allows us to maintain and meet our targets.
