As part of our drive to become a more data-driven organisation, Parkinson’s UK is looking for a Data Strategy Lead. The Data Strategy Lead will be our champion and expert on data’s role in bringing forward the day when no-one fears Parkinson’s. This will mean shaping the charity’s thinking and practice on the strategic use of data by:

  • managing the development of a strategy and roadmap to meet that vision for 2017-19

  • championing data-led decision making in the organisation
  • driving the development of appropriate governance around data use
  • supporting teams with planning and use of data
  • overseeing compliance activity
  • collaborating with our IT team to review our data architecture and approach to CRM

Skills, knowledge and experience

The successful candidate will have experience of developing data strategies – ideally for the not for profit sector and leading change within a medium-sized organisation.   

The role is advertised as full time FTC for 12 months with the possibility of going permanent and we are open to flexible working patterns.
