Vacancy: Stewardship Committee Members

Come and join the 360Giving Data Standard Stewardship Committee!

Refreshing our Stewardship Committee

As we look to implement our upcoming 2022-25 Strategy, we’re refreshing the 360Giving Data Standard Stewardship Committee. This means that to kick off the new year, we’re looking for new members to join the Committee and the 360Giving fold.

This is a unique opportunity to support the governance and strategically influence the development of the 360Giving Data Standard, which underpins all of the work that we do.

What does the Stewardship Committee do? 

Officially the 360Giving Data Standard Stewardship Committee oversees the appropriate and timely maintenance of the Standard, including what upgrades are required and the process for making them – you can find out more about the Standard here.

But the Stewardship Committee does much more than that. They work alongside the staff team work to deliver our mission. They also act as a critical friend when discussing all things data, and the Committee helps the organisation to keep an eye on developments happening elsewhere in the data and civil society sectors.

Who are we looking for? 

Committee members will be recruited to provide a range of skills and experience needed by the Committee, as well as a balance of different backgrounds and identities. The priorities for this recruitment are people working at:

  • A large grantmaking trust or foundation
  • A lottery distributor
  • A central government department
  • A smaller, place-based funder
  • A charity that makes grants to individuals
  • A data ethics or diversity/identity specialist

We’re also committed to bringing together a diverse Stewardship Committee which reflects the communities that 360Giving publishers serve. We particularly welcome applications from candidates from black and minoritised communities and disabled people, who are under-represented in the philanthropy, technology and data sectors that we operate in, and in our current Committee members.

Find out more, and apply today!

You can find out more information about the role, the 360Giving Data Standard and how to apply in our Stewardship Committee Candidate Pack. You’ll also need to fill in our Committee Equality Monitoring Form.

Closing date: 5pm, 31st January 2022

We’re also here to answer questions about any aspect of the appointment process. If you need additional information or wish to have an informal and confidential discussion then please do get in touch at
