About this position:
SCL has embarked on a transformative journey over the past three years in response to the prevailing challenges stemming from fragmented data management practices and limited data sharing within the organization. Central to this endeavor has been the establishment of a centralized data repository, coupled with the formulation of rigorous protocols, quality standards, data cleanliness procedures, and metadata management frameworks. This concerted effort has created a governance structure to harmonize the utilization of data sources across the social sector. At the heart of this transformation lies a powerful tool that serves as the primary conduit for aggregating internally generated data, data acquired through collaborative agreements, and exploring internal and external datasets critical for informed analysis and decision-making.
