  • Embed data protection awareness, practices and responsibilities in all service areas
  • Monitor compliance with SARs
  • Identify risks and recommend corrective actions and mitigation
  • Provide training and guidance to all service areas on SAR procedures including exemptions and time limits/extension

The successful candidate must be an excellent communicator with experience in a data protection and/or a governance role, ideally within a Local Authority setting. You will have good knowledge of DPA 2018 and GDPR and have the ability to define and develop processes and procedures.
