Scotland’s Environment Web looking for recruits

A range of new posts, to support Scotland’s Environment Web (SEWeb), will soon be open to staff from all organisations involved in the delivery of the SEWeb project. The posts will cover Public Engagement, Technical project co-ordination and System Administration. Posts will be advertised internally by each partner as secondments to SEPA.
SEWeb is a partnership of Scottish Government, its environmental agencies and non-governmental organisations (NGOs). The partnership, chaired by Scottish Government, is planning to launch a website in autumn 2011  which houses “Our Environment”; pages detailing the state of Scotland’s environment written collectively by the partnership.  The project plans to increase influence through making better use of our data, working with the wider science community, and promoting citizen science. By 2015 the aim for Scotland’s Environment Web is to be engaging a wide range of individuals, groups and organisations who will be collecting information on the Scottish environment and using collective understanding to improve it through behaviour change and an increasing sense of stewardship. The site will use web-based interactivity by GIS and also a comprehensive report catalogue.

The Scottish Environment Protection Agency (SEPA) was awarded an EU Life + bid on behalf of the partnership  and is the delivery agency for the SEWeb project.
