About the role

Data Protection is a critical area of compliance for Red Kite and we work diligently at ensuring we comply with the relevant laws.  One of the ways we achieve this is by the robust governance of data.  This role combines these two key skills and will straddle the Progress and Governance Pods.

The Progress Pod leads on all things IT and change management related.  We enable the business to innovate and seek out great customer solutions.  To do this we must manage our data compliantly, effectively and in a way that enables it to help us make robust decisions.

The Governance Pod leads on governance compliance.  They co-ordinate our risk management framework, lead on data breach investigations, co-ordinate subject access requests and provide data protection advice and expertise.

This is where you come in. We have two key assignments underway to ensure that we're fit for the future – completing the roll out of our data protection action plan and developing a data governance strategy and framework.  We are therefore looking for a data protection and data governance expert – someone who understands our vision and reflects our values to take things forward.  

You’ll be well organised, highly efficient, and be able to manage these workstreams drawing upon your previous experience.  We will also be relying on you to get involved and lead on our day to day data protection requirements in areas such as SARs, PIAs and data breach investigations (should they occur).
