The National Trust looks after over 250,000Ha of land, more than half of which is tenanted and approximately 80% is farmed. All of this (and more) needs careful data management which happens through our key data systems. GIS is an integral part of this data management.

This post is contractually based at your nearest National Trust Regional Hub but is currently working remotely. There will be an opportunity to explore and agree remote working arrangements which strike the right balance for you and the Trust.

What it's like to work here

There’s no other organisation like the National Trust, Europe’s largest conservation body. No other organisation that brings such an incredible array of places and spaces to life. No other organisation with such an extraordinary wealth of talent, expertise and insight.

You will be a member of a National GIS Data Team. Although geographically dispersed, the team are strong on working collaboratively and sharing the load. You will be a self-motivated, team player with good communication skills.

What you'll be doing

Working as part of the GIS Data Team within our Strategy Management Unit you will be jointly responsible for managing key operational, legal and land management datasets. These include data such as ownership and management units that are used within our critical business systems across the Trust. The role will include a substantial element of technical GIS data editing and data maintenance as well as creating cartographic output from the data.

Collaborate: working within the team you will ensure our data is correct and current and meets the needs of the organisation in a timely fashion

GIS skills: you will be hands-on capturing, managing and analysing master datasets

Visualise: your cartographic skills will be required to produce mapping output for use both within the organisation and externally

Communicate: you will assist in delivering training and guidance on the organisational GIS Browser and data management to a range of staff and volunteers to ensure they’re able to get the most out of the GIS tools available to them.

As a Data Team, we lead on creating organisational value from data; Ensuring our Enterprise Data is trusted, understood, well governed and that we maximise the value from data in order to deliver our strategy.

You will be based at the nearest Regional Hub Office or Heelis (if closest). There may occasionally be the need to travel to Heelis, other regional hubs and National Trust properties.

Who we're looking for

To be fantastic in this role, you’ll need to have:

  • Enthusiastic and knowledgeable about GIS with a minimum of 2 years practical experience using ArcGIS, especially in digitisation and data capture

  • Great attention to detail

  • Focussed and self-motivated, work well collaboratively and independently

  • Experience of working to data quality standards

  • Strong cartographic skills

  • Good presentation and consulting skills

The package

The National Trust has the motto ‘For everyone, for ever’ at its heart. We’re working hard to create an inclusive culture, where everyone feels they belong. It’s important that our people reflect and represent the diversity of the communities and audiences we serve. We welcome and value difference, so when we say we’re for everyone, we want everyone to be welcome in our teams too.

Wherever you’re from, and whatever your background, we want to hear from you – and it doesn’t matter if you’re jam first, cream first, or even if you don’t like scones at all. Everyone is welcome.

Benefits for working at the National Trust include:

  • Flexible working whenever possible

  • Free parking at most locations

  • Free entry to our properties for you, a guest and your children (under 18)
