Open Data Services Co-op aims to make open data useful, usable and in-use. We like to work with projects that combine innovation and engagement to deliver sustainable social impact with open data. We work with transparency initiatives such as Open Contracting, 360 Giving, Beneficial Ownership and International Aid Transparency and provide tools and technical assistance to organisations across the world.
We are a workers co-operative. After a probationary period, workers have the right to become members of the co-op, jointly owning and running the business.
We are committed to equal employment opportunity and are determined to ensure that no applicant or employee receives less favourable treatment on the grounds of age, belief, disability, gender, marital status, religion, race, sex, or sexual orientation, or is disadvantaged by conditions or requirements which cannot be shown to be justifiable.
We particularly welcome applications from disabled, ethnic minority and women candidates as these groups are underrepresented in our organisation.
If we can do anything to facilitate your application, or if you’d like to have an informal chat about the role or our co-operative before applying, please get in touch. Your application will still remain anonymous to people involved in the hiring process.

As a workers co-operative, we are interested in people with experience of, or interest in, working co-operatively and democratically.
In addition to working on projects, you will be willing to take part in shared decision-making and to contribute to running the business.
We welcome candidates with experience in, or the desire to learn about, any aspect of running the co-op: finance, staff welfare, business development, governance and communications.
