Your role in saving nature 

Their digital estate is vital to their mission to give nature a home – from rallying people together to speak up for nature, to inspiring a love of wildlife, to raising the income that pays for their conservation work in the UK and around the world. 

In this role you will work alongside their Senior Solutions Architect and a team of business analysts, service designers, UX researchers and Designers to investigate problems, scope new technologies and create innovative solutions. 

Above all else, you’ll be an advocate for saving nature. Nature’s in big trouble – the climate crisis and loss of habitat are pushing some of our best loved species towards extinction. They won’t let nature fall silent. This role is your chance to make real change possible. What do you say? 

Typical activities in this role will include: 

  • Working with Business Analysts and Service Designers to gather and interpret user requirements  
  • Converting identified requirements into technical specifications 
  • Identifying if there are existing solutions that would meet user needs
  • Assessing the impact of new services on existing system infrastructure and processes
  • Creating blueprints / designs 

About you

  • You'll be a bit of an IT generalist. Potentially with a background in IT engineering / implementation you'll have a broad knowledge of and experience working with different technologies
  • You'll be a confident communicator, having the ability to bridge the gap between technical and design teams and explain complicated issues in simple terms
  • You'll be a natural problem solver. You'll want to dig into the detail, ask questions and work with other people to come up with solutions
  • You'll be collaborative 
  • You'll have experience of working on IT / Digital Projects preferably as part of a matrix team
  • You'll have experience of designing technical / digital solutions
  • You'll be user focussed. Their service design model is based on developing a deep understanding of their users needs. Engaging users and working with them is a core requirement of this role.
  • You'll have experience of working on IT / Digital Projects (Desirable)
