A worker member (trouble-shooter) needed for Bradford Waste Chasers. Doing a £100K t/o in trade but don't have a smart phone between them, no advertising, no social media, no zoom etc. They're looking to recruit a worker who can lift them into the co-op difference and help save this fully operational but exhausted worker co-op. @Andrew Woodcock @Mark Simmonds (Co-op Culture & Platform 6) know anyone?? Would hate to see a fully trading worker co-op with contracts in place heading for the shredder. West Yorkshire-based worker members with a head for business get in touch with Vivien on [email protected]

Developer roles at Open Data Services, UK Remote (Python Software Developer and Data Visualisation Web Developer)

We’re hiring two developer roles to join our interdisciplinary team, working with data publishers and users. To find out more about these roles and working at Open Data Services check out this twitter thread: https://twitter.com/opendatacoop/status/1539593415977050113

At Open Data Services, we aim to make open data useful, usable and in use. We like to work with projects that combine innovation and engagement to deliver sustainable social impact with open data. We work with transparency initiatives such as Open Contracting, 360 Giving, Open Ownership and the International Aid Transparency Initiative to provide tools and technical assistance to organisations across the world.

We believe in supporting the open data ecosystem. All our tools are open source, and we routinely reuse code across projects & publish our work on GitHub – so we can spend more time improving and tailoring our systems, rather than reinventing the wheel.

Normally our job ads have a paragraph about being a worker co-operative, but I think in this loomio that's assumed, and people don't need selling on the benefits!

We offer a training budget of £1,000 and 5 paid days per year, and are committed to supporting staff development, training and conference attendance. Our benefit package includes a health cash plan, group life insurance, generous parental leave, a health and wellbeing service that includes GP consultations and counselling, a cycle-to-work scheme, and an allowance for eye tests.

We particularly welcome applications from disabled, ethnic minority and women candidates as these groups are underrepresented in our organisation.

  • Salary: £43,120 (full-time equivalent) plus profit share and benefits.

  • Location: Remote, UK-only

  • Closing: 12:00pm, 18th Jul 2022 BST

  • Part-time (0.6 FTE and above) or full-time working.
