In addition to conducting routine and special-project data entry, the Data Specialist will: conduct data entry, working to ensure data integrity and quality; streamline reporting and effective data extraction; promote donor data privacy compliance; develop, execute and analyze customized reports, as needed; and coordinate or execute reporting needs for Development, as appropriate.

They will be an advocate, champion and steward for Development in all areas regarding ROI and will be tasked with finding solutions to data use questions and challenges.
