The Woodland Trust is the UK’s leading woodland conservation charity. We want to see a world where trees and woods thrive for people and nature. The Trust engages and inspires people to make their difference tackling the nature and climate crisis helping protect, restore and create our vital woods and trees.
The Chief Technology Officer will lead the Digital Enablement team, responsible for the planning and delivery of our long-term technology strategy, which underpins delivery of the Trust’s broader strategic goals. You’ll be in the driving seat of our digital transformation through Microsoft Dynamics, Dataverse and beyond, and you’ll manage our technology operations and projects, mitigating risks and managing budgets, while looking for opportunities to improve what we do through technical solutions.
With substantial experience of creating a high-performance culture that drives delivery whilst building collaboration, inclusion and continuous improvement, you’ll be an inspirational and compelling expert, with experience of leading change and transformation and an understanding of digital trends and technologies, and how these might relate to the Woodland Trust’s work and vision
You’ll be an experienced Enterprise Architect, able to support, coach, mentor and develop teams to embrace new ways of working and the adoption of new technologies. You’ll have detailed knowledge and hands on experience with the Microsoft Cloud Ecosystem, agile product development, and experience in driving innovation in partnership with internal colleagues and external consultants.
Our Organisational Nature enables us to better understand what it means to be part of the Woodland Trust, empowering us to make an impact, every day. We want you to be able to role model our values; ‘Grow Together’, ‘Focus’, ‘Explore’ and ‘Make it Count’ to ensure each of us plays our part in helping to protect, restore and create our woods and trees.
WHAT YOU CAN EXPECT
There’s no other organisation like the Woodland Trust. Joining the team you will be making your contribution to tackling the nature and climate crisis. In return, we recognise and value our people. You'll have our full support, training and opportunities for professional development, along with a contributory pension, life assurance, good holiday allowance and the opportunity to work flexibly from home.
OUR COMMITMENT TO DIVERSITY & INCLUSION
At the Woodland Trust, we want to reflect and represent the full richness of diversity in the UK. Fewer of our employees are Black, Asian or minority ethnic; disabled; from lower socio-economic backgrounds or under 25; so we are particularly keen to receive your application if you are from one or more of these groups. We can also discuss anything you may need to achieve your full potential at any stage of the process. We assess your application solely on your demonstrated suitability for the job. Nothing else.
We reserve the right to close this vacancy early if we receive a high volume of suitable applications. If you are interested, we'd encourage you to submit your application as early as possible
