Our client is the charity that saves lives at sea. They are now looking for a Data Protection Advisor to join their team on a contract lasting up to two years.

It is a time of significant change in our client. Continuous improvement programmes and changing regulations mean that they need to adapt and prepare for significant changes in the way they manage and protect personal data.

Our client is looking for some temporary resource, to work within the legal department to support the Data Protection Manager and wider organisation over the coming months as they implement and embed change, as well as providing continuity in the day-to-day management of data protection.

You will be responsible for effectively supporting the Data Protection Manager in ensuring our client’s regulatory compliance strategy is relevant, robust and up to date. You will ensure that legal compliance and regulatory requirements within this sphere of control are fulfilled in a timely and accurate manner in accordance with the governance framework across the parent charity and its subsidiaries. You will need to demonstrate the ability to maintain and develop strong working relationships and experience of monitoring developments in relevant legislation and best practice.

To be considered, you will need:

- Familiarity with a wide range of regulatory issues
- GCSEs or equivalent, ideally A Levels, in Maths and English at grade C or above.

The ideal Data Protection Advisor will have experience in a compliance role, but this is not essential. A degree level qualification and/or a company secretarial qualification would also be beneficial.

Our client’s staff and volunteers have been saving lives at sea without prejudice for nearly 200 years. They respect and value diversity of background, skills and perspectives within their teams, and consider it essential to help them deliver a world-class lifesaving service. They are an inclusive organisation and welcome applications from everyone. In addition to having the skills needed for the role, they also look for applicants who share their commitment to living their values (trustworthy, courageous, selfless, and dependable), and helping work towards their goals of halving drowning in the UK and Ireland by 2024. This involves a growing commitment to preventative action, using their expertise to work in partnership with communities locally, nationally and internationally to prevent drowning.
