IFACCA seeks Data and Knowledge Strategist

IFACCA - International Federation of Arts Councils and Culture Agencies,
02 February 2018, Australia

The International Federation of Arts Councils and Culture Agencies (IFACCA) is the global network of arts councils and ministries of culture, with member institutions in over 70 countries. Our vision is a world in which arts and culture thrive and are recognised by governments and peoples for their contribution to society. The Secretariat’s purpose is to support and engage members, by leading global thought and action for arts and culture in public life and forging platforms for collaboration and exchange. We do this through services and programmes that fall into three main areas of work: networking, knowledge and data, and capacity development. 

Under the leadership of IFACCA’s new Executive Director, the Secretariat conducted an in-depth strategic review in consultation with members. As a result of the review, the Secretariat is changing the way that it approaches its programmes to focus on delivering tailored data and information services that provide members with current insights into global matters.

We are now seeking a highly skilled Data and Knowledge Strategist to lead the collection and analysis of data sourced from IFACCA’s members, stakeholders and other relevant and reliable sources; and develop an overarching Knowledge and Data Strategy for the organisation in line with the Federation’s strategic priorities.

The Data and Knowledge Strategist will be responsible for providing strategic data analysis, monitoring strategic metrics, tracking leading international trends and global issues facing the arts and culture, and supporting the Secretariat in the strategic use of data and information to provide informed thought leadership. 

This is an exciting and unique opportunity for a highly motivated individual with significant experience of data, knowledge and information management who is interested in international relations and arts and cultural policy issues. See below for the full position profile.

Applicants should provide:

  • 1 x letter of application (no more than 4 pages describing your reasons for applying and how your skills and expertise meet the selection criteria)
     
  • 1 x Curriculum Vitae (no more than 4 pages and including the names of two referees).
