- BY Nicole Pelette
Save the Children International has an exciting opportunity for you to join our team as the permanent Data Protection Officer in our London office. Save The Children International (SCI) are looking to recruit an experienced Data Protection Officer (DPO) to meet its obligations under the European General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), Data Protection Act 2018 (DPA 2018) and other relevant Data Protection legislation within our areas of operation.
Reporting to the Head of Information Security and Data Protection and the Chief Risk Officer (as the board contact for Data Protection) the DPO is responsible for overseeing SCI's data compliance programme, data privacy, and in particular ensuring that we meet its obligations under GDPR.
The DPO will act as SCI's primary contact for supervisory authorities, including the Information Commissioner's Office (ICO) and data subjects and offer independent objective advice for the SCI's senior leadership team. They may also be requested to offer advice and guidance to Save The Children Association (SCA) and its Members.
Ultimately, the DPO will help drive compliance with SCI's data protection framework (including GDPR and DPA 2018 compliance) through transparent data protection policies, systems and procedures that embed data protection into SCI's global operations, by helping develop and data protection training and by monitoring internal compliance. Some international travel is expected in the execution of this role (up to c.5% p.a.) In the event of a major humanitarian emergency, the role holder is expected to work outside the normal role profile and be able to vary working hours accordingly.
