Training for DataKind UK ‘Office Hours’

28th November 2019 @ 6:00 pm - 8:30 pm

This training session will introduce you to the DataKind UK volunteer-led ‘Office Hours’ scheme, and how you can be a volunteer advisor.

DataKind UK is a charity that supports social change organisation to do data science. We are powered by a community of pro-bono data scientists, who work with charities, social enterprises and public sector bodies to help them make better use of data.

Our ‘Office Hours’ scheme enables social change organisations to talk to a data expert, for free. At present, we run this service from London once a month. We’d like to run this service from Edinburgh – and we need data scientists and other data experts who are able to act as ‘data translators’ for the social sector.

This session will provide training on how to offer our ‘Office Hours’ support, for those who might want to volunteer with us to run with scheme in Edinburgh. If you would like to volunteer, you’ll be asked to sign up for an interview (it’s informal, don’t worry!) with volunteers from our Community Committee.

Please note that this training is for data professionals who want to join our community. It is not for social change organisations who need data support – please get in touch on if that’s you!
