Lead Policy Officer

Location: Edinburgh

Salary expectation: £28,737

Application deadline: Sun 11th April

This is a full-time role

The ICO’s Edinburgh office aims to make a positive difference to information rights and plays an important role in influencing stakeholders in Scotland. It does this by providing advice and guidance, on the legislation regulated by the ICO and promoting compliance across a wide range of stakeholders in Scotland. Our Lead Policy Officer will work as part of the ICO Scotland team to put this into practice and, with information rights more important than ever given the strengthening of our data protection laws, you will never far away from the key information rights issues of the day.

About you

The role requires excellent analytical ability and strong communication skills. We need people who can prioritise competing issues and tasks in a highly varied workload and contribute effectively as part of a team, often with demanding deadlines. Degree educated or equivalent, you will have a strong interest in the information rights landscape. Whilst knowledge of information rights laws would be desirable, we would also welcome applications from those who can demonstrate experience of applying similarly complex legislation and the ability to adapt quickly.

Deadline: Sun 11th April
