AD1418 IBAT Programme Officer

University of Cambridge

Nature Economy Permanent, Full Time GBP £30,000 to GBP £33,0000 per annum, depending on skills and experience

Fifteen years ago, a ground-breaking alliance between UNEP-WCMC, BirdLife International, Conservation International and the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) launched the Integrated Biodiversity Assessment Tool (IBAT). This tool integrates data from globally authoritative biodiversity datasets – the World Database on Protected Areas, World Database of Key Biodiversity Areas and the IUCN Red List of Threatened Species – into a single portal to support decision-makers from industry, finance and governments. Today, it continues to be an innovative solution for providing biodiversity information to decision-makers while channelling resources into the underlying datasets.

The Programme Officer will be responsible for IBAT’s business development, user support, and marketing and communications. Working closely with the IBAT Manager and other Programme Officers, and supported by the IBAT User Sub-committee, you will engage with businesses and financial institutions across a range of sectors to expand IBAT to more organisations. You will support IBAT users and deliver training to ensure organisations can use IBAT to incorporate biodiversity into their decision-making. You will work within a multidisciplinary and cross-organisational team, helping to generate innovative ideas on products and services based on your experience working with IBAT users.
