Data Support Lead

Data Support Lead

We are a small charity with a big impact. We’ve come a long way in the nine years since we launched, with over £265bn of grants data now published by over 275 funders using the 360Giving Data Standard. Our tools and resources further our vision for grantmaking in the UK to become more informed, effective and strategic by making the data easier to access and understand.

With progress being made on our ambitious five-year strategy, we’re working to shift the norm from funders sharing data to using it and creating a permanent transformation in data culture and practice. Are you ready to join us?

About the role

The Data Support Lead is responsible for delivering data skills workshops and training and undertaking data projects that support effective data use by grantmakers, civil society organisations and internally to 360Giving. This is a hands-on and public-facing role. You will be responsible for delivering 360Giving’s data skills training and data support services to 360Giving’s target audiences and key stakeholders.

The role involves designing, planning and delivering training and one-to-one data support to users; preparing tailored data analysis and benchmarking reports; supporting large data analysis projects and special projects and collaborations; providing data cleaning and enrichment services; creating visualisations and contributing to the development of resources and communications to share good data practice. The role is also responsible for producing monitoring and analytics to support 360Giving’s use of data and other operational requirements typical to a small non-profit organisation.

About you

We are looking for a passionate and committed individual to join our small, friendly team in a role that will play a crucial part in delivering our goal to support UK funders in shifting the norm from sharing data to using it in their day-to-day work.

The ideal candidate likes to ask and answer questions about data and will be a data user with an excellent working knowledge of Excel/ spreadsheets who enjoys getting hands-on with data to analyse information and extract insights. Could this be you?

Your love for learning new things and sharing your knowledge with others means you can design and deliver support to people of all technical abilities to build confidence and understanding of how to use data. You’ll be an excellent communicator who is comfortable sharing your insights and data skills in writing; through one-to-one support; and presenting to groups. You’ll be an organised and self-motivated team player who is flexible and thrives working in a varied role as part of a small team. Most importantly, you’ll be passionate about using data to make a real difference and committed to 360Giving’s mission.

This remote-based role requires travel to London 2-4 times a month for team days and to deliver training, with occasional travel across the UK to give presentations.

All applicants must have the right to work in the UK for at least two years.

Salary: £45,000 per annum

We are particularly interested in improving the diversity of our team. We recognise the positive value of diversity, and want to promote equality and challenge discrimination. Our work must reflect the considerations for the breadth of the sector that the data records. So we welcome applications from all suitably skilled and experienced people, particularly candidates from black and minoritised backgrounds, who are underrepresented in the philanthropy and technology sectors we work in.
