Job Description:

The Central Scotland Green Network (CSGN) seeks to change the face of Central Scotland, by restoring and transforming the landscape of an area stretching from Ayrshire and Inverclyde in the west, to Fife and the Lothians in the east.
 
At Central Scotland Green Network Trust we do things differently: we believe in balancing life and work; we work flexibly; we invest in our people by offering training and support and, above all, we value our staff.
 
This position offers a great opportunity for an enthusiastic, proactive individual who is currently seeking to enhance their GIS experience and level of responsibility within a wide-ranging remit. Working with our development and delivery professionals and our project partners, you’ll be recognised as a provider of specialist expertise and support. You’ll lead on all aspects of Data Management and Geographic Information Systems, including strategic development and the delivery of technical projects. This post also provides an opportunity to undertake projects supporting other technical specialisms within CSGNT and our partners. This exciting role will help achieve the CSGN Vision to transform Central Scotland into a place where the environment adds value to the economy and where people’s lives are enriched by its quality.
 
We are looking for an enthusiastic, solution-orientated individual who is qualified to at least Masters level in a relevant subject or with equivalent experience. You’ll need proven expertise in analysing and managing spatial data, supporting users in a range of GIS software environments and the ability to deliver high quality cartographic output. You will also have experience in ArcGIS desktop software (including spatial & network analyst) or an alternative desktop equivalent, PostgreSQL with PostGIS (or other RDBMS), FME and GeoServer. We would particularly like to hear from applicants who have a relevant additional interest, such as (but not limited to) conservation, or marketing and communications, which could add value to your role. Excellent written and verbal communication skills are crucial.
 
This is a permanent position based in our HQ near Shotts, Lanarkshire. Some travel mainly within Central Scotland will be required.

Additional information about CSGNT is available on http://www.csgnt.org.uk/about-csgnt/vacancies

Interviews will be held on Tuesday 20 February 2018.
