You also be responsible for keeping relevant business areas informed of data privacy and relevant regulatory developments, helping to enforce a strong compliance culture.

You will work closely with colleagues from other departments including legal, HR and information security.

This role will involve some travel within Europe.


To be considered for this job, you will have the following experience:

  • Strong knowledge of the UK Data Protection, EU Data Protection Directive and EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)
  • 5+ years' experience within compliance or legal, GDPR and data protection
  • Self-motivated and ability to work well under pressure and results driven
