Do you want to play a key role in the most important change in data privacy regulation in 20 years? With the impending introduction of GDPR a local Stoke company have created a new role for a Head of Data Protection to plan, implement and oversee this large on-going programme of work.

It's a step into the unknown for many so if you're the sort of person who's treading water in your current role and are after a high profile challenge please read on…

Initially you will conduct gap analysis to identify where the business are non-compliant and what training needs are required. This is a prominent role so it's likely you will have been at higher management level, e.g. Senior Project Manager or Programme Manager (if not Head of Data Protection).

However this will be a one-person role to begin with and, although you may eventually build a GDPR team, it's absolutely critical that you're a hands on do-er, someone willing to get their sleeves rolled up!

You'll bring an in-depth background within a complex data protection / audit / governance environment. If you have had exposure to implementing GDPR, or done any scoping work around GDRP that would be great, but if not you'll be able to show that you have had a strong handle on data protection.

As this firm continue to design and develop new products your input will be essential to ensure Global Data Protection Regulations are being adhered to. Risk management will be a key part of your role, too, so that you can advise on the highest priority threats.

This is a critical Data Protection Officer role so please apply now for swift feedback to neileshsood @ computerpeople.co.uk or call 01159485712 for more details.

Salary is to £70k plus 25 days' holiday, pension, gym membership and more.

This Head of Data Protection (GDPR) role is based in Stoke-on-Trent so easily commutable from the likes of Stafford, Burton, Uttoxeter, Derby, Congleton, Crewe, Macclesfield, Market Drayton, Telford.
