This is a great time to join the growing Woodland Carbon Code team at Scottish Forestry and help scale up nature-based solutions to the climate emergency.
We’re looking for an enthusiastic, organised and experienced geospatial data analyst to join the team who manage the Woodland Carbon Code, the UK’s first globally endorsed carbon standard. As part of the team, you’ll be responsible for leading the creation, development and integration of geospatial data to ensure the Woodland Carbon Code continues to operate effectively and help shape the future of the programme.
What you will do
This is an exciting time in the development of the WCC, one of the world’s leading domestic carbon standards.
The Woodland Carbon Code GIS Officer will be responsible for leading the creation, development and integration of geospatial data to ensure that the WCC continues to operate effectively. You will have opportunities to help shape the future of the WCC as it enters the next phase in the development of the woodland carbon market.
In the role of WCC GIS Officer, you will take the lead in coordinating the creation of geospatial data on the WCC and the integration of this data into map browsers and other applications. This will enable a smoother workflow for projects which register and validate to the WCC. You will also review how other geospatial datasets could be incorporated into the WCC to improve the workflow and functionality. You will work with the wider team to evaluate how spatial data can be used in the monitoring and assessment of woodland carbon stock and other metrics.
This is an opportunity to help shape a rapidly evolving work area to scale up our response to the climate emergency.
