DataKind UK exists to transform the impact of social change organisations - charities, social enterprises, grantmakers, public sector bodies - through data science capacity building, for the benefit of the people of the UK and other parts of the world. We want a future in which these organisations are making full, responsible use of data science to increase their impact.
Why? We believe social change organisations make a massive difference to our society, particularly the most vulnerable people and communities. Yet most are not making full use of data and data science to fulfil their missions. We believe that to not do this actively reinforces patterns of inequality and disadvantage in the UK and elsewhere.
We need a Team Coordinator to join the team to provide critical administrative and logistical support across all of DataKind’s programmes of work. The post will contribute both capacity and skills to the team at DataKind – particularly offering support around managing DataKind UK’s volunteer community of data scientists and building the internal operational processes of the organisation.
The Team Coordinator will also provide a comprehensive PA service to the Executive Director, including diary management, planning meetings, and providing general administrative support. The role will also include liaising with key contacts and stakeholders on behalf of the Executive Director and providing the secretariat function to the Board of Trustees.
We’re looking for an organised and confident administrator with excellent written and verbal communication skills and exceptional attention to detail. Our ideal candidate would be happy working autonomously and have experience of supporting a busy and fast-paced team managing multiple different work streams. We are looking for someone who will anticipate need and suggest solutions to logistical challenges. You’ll need to be helpful and enthusiastic in your approach to work, flexible and people oriented.
