The Global Partnership for Sustainable Development Data, hosted at UNF, is a fast-growing, dynamic international partnership bringing together over 300 different organizations including governments, UN agencies, private companies, civil society organizations, and many others. We make connections and broker partnerships to address the problems of gaps in data production, poor data use, access, quality, and to work with stakeholders to fully harness the new opportunities of the data revolution in the service of sustainable development. We aim to link and align action, capacities and resources across geographies, sectors and data communities.
At the heart of what we do is brokering relationships to allow our partners to achieve their objectives and collaborate to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals. As we move into the next phase of our development as a network, we are looking for a dynamic, flexible, empathetic and politically savvy person who can help to bring our partners together to build big, impactful partnerships to meet country needs and drive change at country and regional level. Working closely with others in the team, the Director will bring together data users, data producers, analysts and developers, from governments, the private sector and civil society, to broker collaborations that solve problems at scale, delivering on the promise of the ‘data revolution for sustainable development’.
