Who we are:

The Open Data Institute is an independent, non-profit company founded by Sir Tim Berners-Lee and Sir Nigel Shadbolt. Our vision is for people, organisations and communities to use data to make better decisions and be protected from the harmful impacts of its inappropriate use and distribution. Our wide range of activities, and examples of our thought leadership, can be found on our website.

  • conducting research
  • stakeholder mapping
  • writing blog posts, case studies and reports
  • helping organise and run public workshops and events both in the UK and abroad
  • preparing internal briefings

Placements will last up to three months (timings are flexible), working 4-5 days per week.
What we will provide:

  • London living wage during your time at the ODI
  • flexible work hours
  • an opportunity to learn about the global issues and opportunities created by data
  • guidance on your work and, if applicable, your project
  • support from our team of experts
  • space to work in our open plan, collaborative workspace in London’s Shoreditch
  • the opportunity to attend ODI events
