Data Protection Officer / GDPR Consultant - Spider is currently assisting the UK's data protection resource centre in their search for two experienced individuals to join their team.
First and foremost, this business is a service business. They only look 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 their core values and culture.
Due to their continued growth, they require 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 candidate will have an ability to manage the demands of a portfolio of clients and is 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. He/she must be well presented, with the capacity to work on their 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, working remotely, and or visiting them on certain days each week/month. Our aim is that clients will be local, however the flexibility to accommodate daily travel and occasional overnight stays will be required, therefore a full, clean driving licence is a necessity.

We are looking for candidates who have been in a previous role as Data Protection Officer or similar and ideally have a degree in law. You will also have one or more data protection qualifications such as EU-GDPR-P, CIPM/T and a background in compliance, data security, IT security, governance, legal or audit.
We would require you to have an in-depth knowledge of data protection laws within the UK and Europe and have an ability to think strategically, assess risks and explain the potential consequences. You will also have experience in drafting policies, interpreting legal contracts and report writing with confident presentation skills. Attention to detail is also a must.
If you have the necessary skills and experience and would like to be considered for this opportunity, please apply by forwarding an up to date CV as soon as possible. Career Progression is completely on offer and you will have the opportunity to work with ever more prestigious clients and the opportunity to develop sector specific expertise.
