About Us

The National Forest Company (NFC) is leading the creation of a restored forest landscape in the heart of the midlands, an area left badly scarred by years of coal mining and heavy industry.

Since 1995 we’ve been creating a forest on a scale not seen in England for 1,000 years and so far we’ve planted nearly 9 million trees across 200 square miles across parts of Leicestershire, Derbyshire and Staffordshire. And we aren’t finished yet…

We’re now looking for a Database Administration Officer to join us in Swadlincote and play a lead role in the development of our CRM database.

The Benefits

- Salary of £28,890 - £32,000
- Staff bonuses
- Civil Service Pension Scheme
- 30 days’ annual leave and 10.5 days’ public and privilege holidays
- Learning and development opportunities
- Flexible working

This is an exciting opportunity for a database expert with fundraising systems experience and a good grasp of GDPR to grow their career prospects as part of our innovative, environmental organisation.

You’ll discover that we are on a mission to restore 200 square miles in the heart of England back to its former natural beauty and, with nearly nine million trees planted so far, we’re well on our way. However, we are so much more than just planting trees. We’re pioneering new ways of working so that people and businesses can engage with the Forest, so that it can provide a lasting benefit for generations to come. And we’ve got an amazing vision for the future.

We now need you to drive forwards our internal processes so that we have the infrastructure to build on the successes of the past two decades. Your efforts will ensure we can continue our mission of making the National Forest a fully restored visitor destination that actively supports local communities.

So, if you think it’s about time you gave something back and worked towards a better, greener environment, we’re waiting for hear from you.

The Role

As our Database Administration Officer, you will be tasked with developing and administering our CRM database. Implementing and maintaining processes, you will ensure that high-quality information is delivered to our organisation.

Specifically, you will:

- Lead the management of data within the database

- Oversee the development, implementation and management of the data hygiene plan
- Ensure regular housekeeping tasks are completed for the database
- Make sure that all records are GDPR compliant and in-line with organisational standards
- Lead the development of CRM-related policies and processes

- Proven relevant experience and sound working knowledge of databases, including imports, exports and reporting
- Experience of working with ThankQ or other fundraising CRM systems
- Knowledge and an understanding of data protection legislation and GDPR
