  • develop training materials for staff and lay members;
  • provide support for subject access requests and the rights provided that are provided under the GDPR;
  • work closely with UNISON Centre departments to ensure data processing complies with the provisions of the GDPR.

You will need excellent communication skills and be a confident user of Microsoft Office with first-rate IT skills.  Knowledge and understanding of The Data Protection Act 2018 and the GDPR is highly desirable, as well as experience of the challenges faced when implementing robust privacy arrangements in a membership organisation.
