If so, Back Up could offer you an inspiring and fulfilling role making a significant difference to the lives of people affected by spinal cord injuries.

About the role:
We understand that a spinal cord injury can be devastating, but we believe it shouldn’t prevent anyone from getting the most out of life. And we’re here to help make sure that can happen. We provide a range of services for people affected by spinal cord injury, and this provides us with a unique insight into the issues they face in their day-to-day lives.

To do that, we know we need to make best use of our data and systems to make informed decisions and offer the right support at the right time.

As our first Data and Systems Coordinator, you will have the opportunity to bring your own creativity and help shape the role. Reporting to the Data Protection Officer but working across the whole organisation, you will oversee and constantly improve our data and how we use our systems; whilst seeking out new ways for us to develop and improve how we work. Above all, you will be passionate about being able to demonstrate the impact of what we do, and you will see for yourself how Back Up quite literally transforms lives every day.

About us:
At Back Up, we have big ambitions. Over the next few years, we’re going to be transforming the lives of even more people affected by spinal cord injury.

Together we’ll be working hard to make sure everyone affected by spinal cord injury has access to the support they deserve; and we are the only spinal cord injury charity in the UK providing specific services to children and young people.

Back Up has been voted one of the top ten charities to work for (Third Sector Best Charities 2020). The enthusiastic, inclusive and supportive spirit of our very skilled staff ensure excellence in the services we deliver.
