The Opportunity

Save the Children International has an exciting opportunity for you to join our team as the Generative AI Workstream LeadinCentre -London, UK or any existing Save the Children International Regional or Country office worldwide


Save the Children as a movement generates huge volumes of data that is used for multiple purposes. There are many systems and tools across the organisation that are used to generate, store and communicate data and information as well as pockets of capabilities and process that is focused on driving continuous improvement.

As we move into our next strategy period and we are facing an ever increasing need to support the most marginalised and deprived children through our breakthroughs, the need to enable better prioritisation and decision making becomes ever clearer. Alongside this, for many of our priorities for the next period, our chances of success are greatly increased through effective and efficient use of our data driven consistently across our movement. Through an aligned and forward looking data and analytics strategy and an effective and responsive approach to managing data and analytics supply and demand we aim to reduce administrative burden on our core operations, ensure we make the best use of data and associated tooling we already have available, improving the quality of data we hold on our operations and outcomes to enable better decision making and enable a continuous focus on driving efficiencies and continuous improvement. A key component of this is ensuring we remain relevant and look at opportunities to benefit from the latest developments in technology and data. AI is clearly something that has developed and progressed in terms of capabilities and value over recent years and we are keen to ensure we look at how this could support us to achieve our ambitions for Children.
