Woking, GU21 4LL
Spatial Intelligence Analyst & Trainer – The Role
You will support the team working with our online mapping and analysis tool (WWF-SIGHT). You will assist in the wider roll-out of WWF-SIGHT and its application across the WWF global network of offices, as well as help support the nascent Network Spatial Intelligence Community. This will involve working with a variety of network stakeholders from programme staff, GIS specialist to the key stakeholder on network spatial intelligence. You will also help build capacity within the organisation in the use of spatial data and analysis.
We are looking to build a strong WWF Network Spatial Intelligence community that will benefit from co-ordination, sharing of resources and capacity building. As part of the WWF-SIGHT team you will play a central role in this initiative.
WWF-SIGHT is a new online mapping and analysis tool. One of its strength lies in its extractives data and ability to map oil, gas and mining concessions against areas of particular environmental or biodiversity importance. It provides our global network with the capacity to quickly resolve complex questions.

Who are we?
WWF believes in a future where people and nature thrive.
Best known as the world’s leading conservation body, we’ve seen first-hand how wildlife, the environment and human activity are all interlinked.
That’s why our passion for safeguarding the natural world has to be backed up by other environmental action – tackling the global threat of climate change (through our big global campaigns like Earth Hour) and helping people to change the way they live to ease pressure on natural resources.
WWF is at the heart of global activities in all these areas. We have teams of highly skilled professionals working with governments, businesses and communities here in the UK and around the world.
