Data Support Lead

Data Support Lead

We are a small charity with a big impact. We’ve come a long way in the seven years since we launched, with over £175bn of grants data now published by over 230 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.

We are now at an exciting point in 360Giving’s journey, with an ambitious three-year strategy that marks a step-change for the organisation as we work to shift the norm from funders sharing data to using it, and create a permanent transformation in data culture and practice.

About the role

The Data Support Lead is responsible for the delivery of data skills workshops and training, and undertaking data projects that support effective data use by grantmakers and civil society organisations. This includes providing online and in-person training, carrying out data processing and analysis, providing data cleaning and enrichment services as well as supporting 360Giving to improve our internal use of data.

This is a hands-on and public facing role, responsible for the day-to-day delivery of 360Giving’s data skills training and data support services to 360Giving’s target audiences and key stakeholders. The role involves 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, 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 an outstanding individual to join our small friendly team in a role that will play a crucial part in delivering our goal to support UK funders to shift the norm from sharing data to using it. 

The ideal candidate will be a data user with an excellent working knowledge of Excel 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’ll be able to support people of all technical abilities to build confidence and understanding of how to use data, and you will grow in the role as the new post develops. 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 have a passion for using data to make a real difference and be committed to 360Giving’s mission.

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. It is vital that our work reflects the considerations for the breadth of the sector that the data records. So we welcome applications from all suitably skilled and experienced people, and particularly from candidates from black and minoritised backgrounds, who are underrepresented in the philanthropy and technology sectors we are working in, and in our current staff team.
