I am currently recruiting for a Freedom of Information/Data Protection Officer to work with a Council in South London on a contract basis.

You will manage the council’s response to Freedom of Information, Environmental Information Regulations and Subject Access requests in order to meet performance targets and to issue refusal notices on behalf of the council. The post-holder will advise council officers on legal compliance with Freedom of Information, Environmental Information Regulations and Data Protection matters. They will decide on exemptions on behalf of the council and provide advice to officers. In addition, they will respond to complaints from the Information Commissioners Office on Freedom of Information, Environmental Information Regulations and Subject Access Requests.

Applicants must have previous experience in a similar role, within a Local Authority or other Public Sector organisation.

Please do not hesitate to apply.
