Conservation Management Systems Consultant, Spatial Data Management

If you have excellent IT and data management skills and a background in conservation, land management, life sciences or similar, then this might be the rare opportunity you have been looking for to combine your interests. Exegesis Spatial Data Management is a GIS and software consultancy with an impressive portfolio of mapping and database applications used in the environmental and conservation sectors and has been part of the Idox Group since 2021.

One of these applications is the ‘Conservation Management System’ (CMSi), a comprehensive, map-based solution for the planning and management of protected areas. CMSi is used to manage thousands of protected sites in the UK and overseas, by organisations including Natural England, Wildlife Trusts, and several important conservation clients in Europe and Africa. CMSi comprises desktop, web and mobile components, and benefits from an active and well-funded development programme.

The position we are recruiting to will work within the small and supportive CMSi team, reporting to the Team Leader.

The range of activities in the CMSi role can be shaped to your skill set but will include: software installations and upgrades at client sites,  and on Exegesis servers; testing new developments and handling communication between developers, project managers and clients; working with new organisations, seeing through data migrations from a variety of formats and platforms; developing and delivering training courses online, in our training suite and in client premises; technical support and advice to clients; marketing activities, such as communications with existing and potential customers at conferences, on social media, and by other channels; consistent review of relevant policies and good practice; contributing to production of quotations and tender submissions; contributing to the product strategy and roadmap.

Don’t worry, we don’t expect any one person to cover all bases, but  as a member of a small team you will certainly have a wide brief and can expect to be actively participating in many of these activities. To apply, please be sure to send a supporting note with your CV, telling us about your passion and experience working in the conservation management sector, your understanding of spatial technologies and the flair you can bring to the role of CMSi Consultant – for our customers and for Idox.
