The Citizen Sensing Coordinator will play a key role in delivering an exciting and challenging programme of work at KWMC.
Working closely with the Programme Manager, they will be central to developing and coordinating the practical day-to-day delivery of projects that use The Bristol Approach to Citizen Sensing – a framework designed to enable citizens to harness the power of sensing technologies and data for the common good.
Citizen Sensing is a process where people build, use, or act as sensors – for example, identifying and gathering information (data) that will help them to tackle an issue that’s important to them. This sensing process could involve creating a bespoke sensor from scratch or using a piece of technology that already has an in-built sensor, like a smartphone. However simple or complex the technology, and whatever the data being gathered, citizen sensing is about empowering and enabling people to use technology for social good.
KWMC is working on a number of citizen sensing projects that now require a coordinating role: someone to oversee and drive them forward and seek solutions to emerging challenges.
The Citizen Sensing Coordinator should have enthusiasm for and excellent knowledge of building and prototyping sensors and IoT (Internet of Things) devices and a good understanding of data collection.
The postholder will be creative, practical and confident, able to work collaboratively, communicate effectively and inspire a wide range of people.
