Data Protection Specialist

Circa £39,000 dependent on experience



Stevenage, Hertfordshire (with hybrid working)

At the IET, making our world a better place starts by creating a better place for our people.

At the IET you’ll have more than just a job. Our work is exciting and challenging, connecting the people who solve the problems that matter. It means working with us has real meaning and impact, and you’ll grow – professionally and personally – in ways you never thought possible.

We’re also making significant investments in our people, including providing a modern, vibrant workplace and embracing hybrid working.

What you'll be doing

Reporting into the Data Protection Officer, you’ll support the provision of all data protection and information governance guidance to ensure the IET continues to meet national and international information legislation, regulation, and best practice.

This role benefits from Hybrid working, which means home working and attending the Stevenage office typically two to three times a week.


What we hope you can bring to the role

You’ll have experience from a previous data protection/information governance role as well as excellent up to date knowledge of national and international data protection law.

You’ll be a confident, enthusiastic, self- motivated individual who is keen to get into detail and provide expert guidance and advice to IET colleagues. With excellent interpersonal skills, you’ll be able to effectively manage stakeholders and influence attitudes and behaviours.

We’d love to get to know you
