    BBC - Senior Advisor, Data Protection - £60k - London

    Closing date: March 8, 2010

    The Data Protection Act is rarely out of the headlines these days, whilst the Freedom of Information Act is often involved in creating them. The BBC’s Information Policy and Compliance team advises the BBC on both of these key areas. Part of the Legal department within the central Operations Group, we provide professional guidance to all BBC divisions and companies to ensure their compliance with the DPA and FOI Acts, and other related legislation. The legal and compliance challenges in this arena are as varied as they are important: balancing between journalism and data protection; protecting individuals’ personal data in an increasingly complex online world; and making sure the BBC is as open as possible.

    Managing a team of two Data Protection Advisors, you’ll be as at home writing policy as answering complex questions from programme makers and Divisional Directors.
    With substantial experience in a legal or compliance related role, you’ll possess significant knowledge of DP combined with experience of file and case management and interpretation of the DPA. You’ll probably have a legal qualification, and you’ll be used to providing legal or compliance advice and working to very tight deadlines.
