Job description

If you have impressive management skills, ideally gained within a regulatory or public sector background, this unique challenge offers plenty of variety and the opportunity to help a diverse range of organisations with their information rights practices.

Your role

The role of the Data Protection Complaints and Reviews Department is to ensure that organisations comply with their obligations under the Data Protection Act.

Responsible for managing and supervising a team of Case Officers and Lead Case Officers, your experience will enable you to lead your team in maintaining their individual caseloads and working within advertised service standards. Able to work autonomously and co-ordinate a number of activities at a time, your good people skills and focus on quality will ensure everything runs smoothly and to deadline. Your eye for detail and excellent written communication skills will ensure the production of reports and correspondence for a wide audience.

You will lead a team responsible for handling concerns raised about how information has been handled by organisations in the public and private sector. You’ll work with organisations to identify areas where they can improve their compliance with the legislation we oversee and will be responsible for some stakeholder engagement.

Skills you’ll need

You’ll need excellent organisational skills and will have a proven record of strong leadership skills. You’ll have the ability to identify potential opportunities to engage and educate individual organisations or entire sectors, analysing trends and themes as they emerge. So, you must be persuasive, professional and a talented manager with experience of leading a team to deliver expected outcomes. You must be able to deal with all aspects of management including performance management, attendance management and will have the confidence to make decisions regarding your staff. You should be comfortable delivering presentations, chairing meetings and have the confidence and ability to represent the ICO at conferences/workshops. What’s more, you’ll need the credibility to develop good working relationships, often at a senior level, with organisations that range from national bodies to small businesses.

Closing date: 23:59, Sunday 22 September 2019
