We always work to improve our processes.

  • Monitor and control the Ontology to ensure clean data inclusion.
  • You will develop taxonomies, thesauri, and controlled vocabularies with an emphasis on sustainability.
  • You will identify taxonomy requirements through end-user research, Crisps’ existing content corpus and input from partners and external sources.
  • Identify taxonomy indicators, measure taxonomy effectiveness and create taxonomy performance reporting.
  • Work with teams, including analytics, research, developers, engineers, and data scientists.
  • Educate the organisation on the impact and return on investment of taxonomy work and provide ongoing support with taxonomy governance and implementation frameworks.
  • This is a hands-on taxonomy management role

  • Degree in Information Management, Library, and Information Science or equivalent 5+ years’ experience as a working taxonomist.
  • Knowledge of Excel, Google sheets, Ontology development applications, SPARQL/SQL, PoolParty or similar

  • Excellent ability to communicate taxonomy value to the business in non-technical language through training and presentations.
In response to COVID -19, these roles will be WFH full time until September 2021, perhaps longer. Applicants therefore must be in a position to work from their home and have a secure workstation appropriate for home working for an extended period.
