Job description

Salary: The expected starting salary is £37,964 (with the top of the range to be offered in exceptional circumstances). 

We have two openings for Senior Case Officers to join the BCR and International Transfer Team on a permanent basis.  The roles are to assist in both the review and approving of UK binding corporate rules (BCRs) applications. 

The team is collaborative and supportive and the nature of the work means a lot of contact with organisations with international transfer instruments and other EU and non EU privacy and data protection authorities.  This is an excellent opportunity to expand your knowledge of International Data Transfers.

Given the complex and technical nature of BCRs, neither role is suitable for part time or job-share working patterns.
