Fixed term contract for one year from date of commencement

We're Breast Cancer Now, the UK's largest breast cancer charity - and we're dedicated to funding research into this devastating disease. We believe that if we all act now, by 2050, everyone who develops breast cancer will live - and live well.

The role

Working closely with our Legal Counsel you will be pivotal in project managing our data protection compliance programme in readiness for the implementation of GDPR in May 2018. As the main point of contact for all data protection queries this organisation wide project will require to you to engage with colleagues across all directorates. To do this you will need to develop an understanding of all business functions and utilise your experience and knowledge of data protection to develop and implement policies and procedures and offer data protection guidance and training sessions to key stakeholders.

About you

You will be able to readily demonstrate your understanding and experience of data protection compliance. You will be an excellent project manager who can direct and move this project forward in accordance with the timetable and within the fixed 12-month term. You will manage stakeholder relationships and effectively direct and implement the compliance programme. You will need to clearly communicate and explain the complexity of data protection legislation to colleagues who are representing their directorates as Data Protection Champions, supporting them as necessary. We are looking for someone to move this project forward as soon as possible.
