The Open Data Institute (ODI) was established in 2012 by Sir Tim Berners-Lee and Sir Nigel Shadbolt to catalyse impact from open data - nurturing start ups, fostering and community, and building capacity and knowledge.

In partnership with the World Bank and the Open Knowledge Foundation we are working to bring the benefits of open data to the developing world in a three year programme - Open Data Partnership for Development.  We are looking for an ambitious, culturally aware and driven individual to manage this project.

About you

You will be responsible for; 

  • Day to day management of the Open Data Partnership for Development programme
  • Working with the head of training to create and deliver relevant courses and learning with lasting effects
  • Scope and understand client needs
  • identifying, driving and delivering development opportunities
  • Building a strong reputation for the ODI in delivering work in developing countries
  • Building strong collaborative relationships with current and potential partnerships either to assist with project delivery or the funding of new work.

To succeed in the role you will need to be able to demonstrate; a passion or strong interest in open data, excellent organisational, written and verbal communication skills, gravitas and confidence in dealing with a variety of stakeholders, strong financial awareness and good IT skills.  Language skills in particular in Spanish, Portuguese, French or Mandarin would be a real bonus.

You must be comfortable working in an unstructured environment and be able to demonstrate the ability to work on your own initiative, and manage multiple tasks within tight time frames. 

You’ll be based at the ODI’s offices in Shoreditch, at the heart of the London startup scene, but connected to the latest developments in open data, wherever they originate. This role will require you to travel to developing countries as well as build strong relationships with partners in USA. You should be prepared to spend up to a third of your time travelling.
