Posted:09/01/2024
Location:From home role with XR UK (UK Wide)
Hours per week:2-4
No. spaces available:3
Meeting Time: To be decided, maybe None!
Meeting Format:Conference call
Meeting Schedule:Volunteer tasks are assigned and arranged to suit, checking in with the team leader periodically
Essential Skills: Data handling, in language(s) of your choice. Lots of Python, JSON, Google sheets ...
Desired Skills: Experience of systems in use: Action Network, Chuffed, WordPress, social media platforms ...
Accessibility considerations: Tasks can be worked on at any time, and group meetings can be minimised

The role is to help define the data flows, and automate the capture, merging and insightful visualisation of the sort of data that a large decentralised organisation produces - email lists, website traffic, media posts, sign-ups and donations.

Lots of the work is on (de-identified) exports from central services that already exist, and from the APIs associated with social media platforms. So, while we would really welcome experts to help us optimise data flows in individual systems, the overall goal is to extract time-series data and build compelling dashboards that can support strategic decision-making:

  • how did new volunteers find us? Where do they come from, and what did they do next?
  • which posts went viral?
  • which email got people out onto the streets?

This role is being advertised by the following working group:

Data Analysis & Insights

Location: XR UK (UK Wide)

The Data Analysis & Insights Group supports evidence-based decision-making across XR UK. It divides in two: A Data Analytics team automates capture of the sort of data that a large decentralised organisation produces - email lists, website traffic, media posts, sign-ups and donations. It then provides insights: especially, which activities generate the widest engagement? A Data Research team finds and reviews data on evidence-based protest and conducts studies on e.g. media coverage of XR UK "actions", and participation in, and public attitudes to, protest. XR UK is now 5 years old. We need to take our membership to the next level, measuring it as we do so! And as a General Election approaches, we will be analysing qualitative and quantitative data on public attitudes to climate and environmental issues. What we need: All kinds of people really! But especially Data- and Social scientists. Feeling like you could help? Please contact: feedbacklearnignxr@gmail
