Are you passionate about information governance and data protection? Would you like to join a team committed to developing institutional policy and practice in this area?

The Secretariat has been leading a project to ensure that the University meets its ongoing data protection obligations. The project is moving into its next phase; over the next two years we are looking for an individual to co-ordinate our activity across three principal projects, which involve remediation of legacy data across institutional systems and applications; remediation of file store data; and the procurement and implementation of a new suite of on-line training. You will have oversight across the University of all three projects to ensure their seamless and consistent implementation.

Reporting to the Head of Records Management and Information Governance, this is an exciting opportunity for a proactive and motivated information professional to join the Information Governance team at an important time in the development of data protection law. 

Working within the Data Protection Officer’s team, you will also undertake a range of other duties across the Data Protection (GDPR) programme. You will help embed and monitor data protection principles across the University, and respond to requests made under the UK data protection legislation. You will provide support for internal reviews and responses to regulatory bodies, ensuring that our processes and procedures remain fit for purpose and that the University meets it statutory responsibilities under UK data protection legislation.
You will be a qualified information professional, with a good knowledge of legislation relating to information management (e.g. GDPR) and experience of managing organisational compliance matters.
