Higher Education Institution

Contract Length: 6 months+

Sellick Partnership are delighted to be recruiting for a Data Protection Officer (DPO) to join a busy, thriving Higher Education Institution near Hertfordshire on a full-time locum basis. This assignment will begin on a 6 months basis with a strong view for extension and they require someone to start as soon as possible.

My client is seeking an enthusiastic, hard-working individual who is keen to find themselves in a friendly, forward-thinking team. This role would suit a Data Protection Officer or Information Governance Officer who has recently begun their career in this field and is looking to further develop their professional experience in an organisation that is offering interesting and varied work.

Your duties and responsibilities will include:

  • Subjects Access Requests (SAR)
  • Freedom of Information (FOI) Requests
  • Data Protection Impact Assessments (DPIA)
  • GDPR contract terms
  • Maintaining current GDPR policies

You will be reporting directly to the Head of Legal, who is willing to offer valuable on-the-job training and support to those who may lack some experience or confidence in certain areas of the role requirements. Previous experience in a Higher Education Institution is a bonus however this is by no means essential to this role.

On offer is a competitive hourly rate and attractive flexible working arrangements, such as some home working.

The offices are conveniently located just a few minutes' walk from the nearest train station and are close to local amenities. Parking close to the offices is offered at a very discounted rate.

This is a fantastic opportunity to join a welcoming team and to gain valuable experience in a prestigious organisation. This is an opportunity not to be missed!
