The National Biodiversity Network Trust is a charitable organisation with a membership that shares biological data and information. The NBN membership includes, many of the UK’s largest wildlife charities and NGO’s, Local Record Centres, government agencies, research institutions, botanic gardens and the public and most of the UK’s national biological recording schemes and societies.

To date, over 220 million records have been shared within the NBN, via our digital data sharing infrastructure, the NBN Atlas, which is still in an early phase of development. We want to develop it to provide a world leading biodiversity digital data sharing platform that provides data, information and services tailored to each of our diverse audiences.

We are looking for a Project Manager to fill a new role to take the lead on the NBN Atlas technical development and, in the medium term, to support the Chief Executive on delivering a project to enhance the sustainability of the NBN Trust. The role is to work with the NBN Trust’s technical team and liaise with stakeholders and NBN Atlas users to determine and communicate requirements for development tasks and prioritise the work plan. The right candidate for this role needs to be comfortable working with non-technical and technical specialists and have an understanding of how websites such as the NBN Atlas work.
