CEO – DataKind UK

DataKind UK is a charity that supports other charities in the UK to use data science to transform their work and the lives of the people they serve.

We do this by mobilising a pool of thousands of talented volunteer data scientists to work with charities on data science projects of varying sizes, supporting and mentoring charity leaders to harness data science in their organisation and creating communities of practice and knowledge around exemplary social sector data science

Since we were established nine years ago, we have increased our impact. We now support around 50 charities every year with a variety of offerings. We are one of the most experienced providers of charity data science support in the UK.

DataKind UK is looking to appoint a new CEO, capable of leading a vibrant organisation and inspiring, motivating and engaging a diverse team into a new phase of transforming the social sector using data science. We’re building on the work we’ll continue to do with individual organisations, and strengthening the sector more broadly by supporting funders and charity leaders to do better with data, and nurturing communities of social sector data experts who can learn from each other and thrive.

As CEO, you will be a confident communicator and increase DataKind UK’s presence as a trusted source of knowledge and support for the effective use of data in the sector. You will develop and manage productive relationships with senior social sector leaders and funders to advance DataKind’s strategy and mobilise the resources needed to deliver it.

You will be an experienced, emotionally intelligent people manager, and lead an organisation of around 10 people. You’ll be supported by a senior leadership team of three roles reporting to you. You will have experience in overseeing governance, finance and operations work as well as the development and execution of organisational strategy.

The CEO will report to the Board of Trustees on progress against our objectives and will be responsible for the growth of the organisation’s impact by shaping and implementing our strategy, building on existing programmes, and introducing new initiatives.

This is a hybrid role, with candidates expected to spend some time in London, UK every month. The role requires occasional work on weekends and evenings (offset by time off in lieu) to support volunteer-run activities such as DataDives, and some of this activity requires presence in London. The role is open to full- and part-time candidates. The full-time annual salary for the position is £67,000.

Charity People is acting as an employment agency advisor to DataKind UK on this appointment. For the candidate pack and details about how to apply please send your CV to Tiku van Houtem at tiku@charitypeople.co.uk
