Everyone can contribute to bat conservation and just to prove the point, we are looking for a business analyst. As a science-led organisation, data collection is vitally important. We need the expertise of a business analyst to help us make best use of an important source of data.

The Bat Conservation Trust (BCT) National Bat Helpline receives over 14,000 enquiries (calls and emails) each year from building and planning professionals, householders with bat roost questions, and members of the public who have found injured and grounded bats across the UK. The Helpline is operated by six permanent staff members, supported by four seasonal staff in the busy summer months, and a team of volunteers.

A business analyst is required for a short-term contract to develop and manage an invitation to tender for a new National Bat Helpline database for BCT.

For data protection reasons the successful contractor must be based in the UK.

We welcome tenders for this work from individuals or companies. The successful contractor will have excellent communication and interpersonal skills, and the ability to work with people at all levels of an organisation. They will understand the constraints of small to medium charities. They will have confidence working with complex data and systems. They will understand how IT can be used to resolve problems, and have an understanding of the value of data and effective analysis. Excellent time management and organisational skills are essential, as are problem-solving skills and a good understanding of project management techniques.

BCT’s main office is in Battersea, south-west London. The contract could be delivered from the office or remotely, subject to discussion with the successful provider.
