Join our team as a Data Protection Officer

If you’re looking for an interesting, varied, dynamic and rewarding DPO role, then you’re in the right place.

We are currently recruiting for a Data Protection Officer in Manchester

The DPO Centre is the UK’s data protection officer resource centre. We provide ‘fractional’ outsourced Data Protection Officer resources to over 250 organisations across the UK, ranging from 1 to 8 days per month.  We also provide EU Representation services to a range of Asian and US based medical and technology organisations.

We offer the opportunity to work with a portfolio of clients in dynamic, varied and challenging DPO roles, alongside other like-minded and motivated professionals within a structured, organised and co-ordinated team.

First and foremost, The DPO Centre is a service business. We look only to work with proactive, motivated, enthusiastic, customer driven, commercially aware team players, who can clearly demonstrate a passion for what they do and therefore offer an ideal fit with our core values and culture.

Due to our continued growth, we require further experienced Data Protection Officers with a track record in the role, who are compliance driven, can demonstrate excellent communication and presentation skills and an ability to influence, encourage and support positive change within an organisation.

The successful candidates will have an ability to manage the demands of a portfolio of clients and are therefore able to prioritise effectively, navigate conflicting client demands diplomatically and maintain the highest degree of confidentiality and professionalism.

We are looking for candidates that value attention to detail and who deliver high quality work within agreed timescales. You must be well presented, with the capacity to work on your own initiative, but also to actively contribute to the constant development of the wider team.

The successful candidate will work with a dynamic portfolio of exciting and varied clients.  Our services are delivered based on a balance of working remotely from home (so no travelling is required) and or visiting the client at their offices on certain days each week/month.  Our aim is that the client portfolio be local to the candidate’s home location, however the need for sufficient flexibility to accommodate regular travel and occasional overnight stays that enable full working days to be delivered to the client is a fundamental requirement of the role, therefore only candidates with a full, clean driving licence and the ability to accommodate this requirement should apply.

Contact with management and the other members of the DPO team will be frequent, therefore fulfilling the ongoing requirement to exchange knowledge, share experiences, improve our processes, develop our documentation and constantly improve on the best practice framework employed with our clients.
