Job Description

Are you a leader when it comes to all things data protection related? Are you passionate about protecting personal data? Do you want to work for a Bank who are revolutionising the entire industry? If yes, then we may have the role for you!
As a Data Privacy Specialist, you will be responsible for our ongoing compliance with General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), Data Protection Act 2018 and other data protection legislation. You will be looking after a suite of processes and controls to make sure Metro Bank continues to create fans. This will be part of our great IT Governance team, reporting to our Data Protection Officer.
So what would you be doing?...
• Responding to data protection queries across the Bank 
• Looking after data subjects access requests, completing data privacy impact assessments and providing specialist privacy advice
• Maintaining positive relationships with colleagues in regards to data privacy reporting and alerts 
• Overseeing all activity relating to the GDPR, and making sure changes are implemented within the business
• Participating in change workshops to help advise on data privacy solutions
 You need to be this kind of person…
• Passionate about providing unparalleled levels of service and convenience for customers
• Able to work and learn quickly in a fast paced, fun and dynamic environment
Prepared to stick at something – we wonder what might be the issue if someone has jumped from job to job as we want people who are prepared to learn and grow 
• Care about doing a great job and exceeding expectations with the quality of what you do
• Able to work and learn quickly in a fast paced, fun and dynamic environment
And... we are a bank so risk is a part of everything we do. We love people who take responsibility, do the right thing for customers, colleagues and Metro Bank and have the courage to call out any concerns.
We always support colleagues to develop their skills. But to be successful in this job you really do need to already be able to do most of these wonderful things...
• Understand the risks associated with your job and what that means for you, Metro Bank and all our stakeholders 
• You will have experience working within a Data Privacy role or a role within a Legal team where your skills are transferable 
• It would be wonderful if you could demonstrate a good undertaking of data privacy risk scoring and reporting
• We would love for you to be able to produce internal data privacy processes and procedures
• Strong communication and analytical skills should come as second nature to you
• Working knowledge of UK / EU Data Privacy Legislation (including GDPR, Privacy and Electronic Communications Regulations 2003,) is required for this role

Diverse teams really are the best teams. We know that candidates (especially women, research tells us) may be put off applying for a job unless they can tick every box.  We also know that ‘normal’ office hours aren’t always doable, and while we can’t accommodate every flexible working request we are happy to be asked.  So if you are excited about working with us and think you can do much of what we are looking for but aren’t sure if you are 100% there yet… why not give it a whirl? Please note that sometimes we may close a job earlier for applications if we are inundated with amazing candidates.. Good luck!
