We’re Abri, a housing association based in the south of England. One of the largest in fact. We've got 35,000 homes and 1,400 colleagues. And if all our 80,000 residents lived in the same place, we’d have a town roughly the size of Guildford.
We’re a passionate bunch. We think we can make a real difference. Homelessness, poverty, inequality, a lack of affordable housing. They’re all linked. They’re issues that affect so many, young and old alike. And we don’t think that’s right. We want to give people the chance to dream big and be who they want to be. Homes are at the heart of everybody’s lives. And we exist to help make good homes, and good lives a reality for everyone.
We’ve all got different backgrounds, strengths and experiences. But we share the same values. It’s these shared values that bring us together as one team.
Our colleagues embrace these every day. Be the difference to our customers and colleagues, always curious and look for better solutions, achieve together by working in partnership with others, own it openly through working with others in an open and honest way, and finally embrace possibilityand see changes and challenges as welcomed opportunities.
If you share our values and want to make a real difference in the world, you’re on to a winner and we’d love to hear from you!
Your new role
We’re excited to be looking for a new Data Protection Manager to join our busy team of data professionals, making sure that we do the right thing by our customers, colleagues and other stakeholders when dealing with personal information.
You’ll ensure that the confidentiality and integrity of our stakeholder data remains at the heart of everything we do - it’s our priority that we maintain the highest standards, striving not only to be compliant with the law but to meet our customer’s expectations that we protect their data as if it were our own.
No two days will be the same in this role so enthusiasm, a can-do attitude and a genuine passion for going the extra mile will be essential as you’ll be championing data excellence throughout the organisation and a key player in:
- delivering data protection risk assessments to support business growth and the fulfilment of strategic objectives
- developing, communicating and delivering training on our data policies and procedures at all levels of the organisation
- promoting transparency and excellence in data quality
- meeting our customers data requests with courtesy and care
- managing and investigating data breaches, and ensuring we continuously improve our security standards
- engaging with the wider sector to share and build best practice
You’ll have a thorough knowledge of data protection laws and a proven track record in using IT in a smart way to manage data. You'll be an excellent communicator: confident, clear and assertive when necessary. But most of all we hope you'll be as passionate about excellence as we are.
What you can expect from us
We want our colleagues at all levels to be bold, inspiring and not afraid to speak up and be their authentic selves.
Your wellbeing is really important to us, so you can expect a competitive reward package to ensure you and your family are supported at work and at home.
We’ll work with you to help you reach your goals through personal development plans and our in-house People Development team.
Abri is committed to promoting an inclusive culture. We want our colleagues to bring their individual differences, life experiences and knowledge into the workplace and we welcome their contribution to our amazing company. Everyone is different, everyone is unique.
Interviews will be held during the first week of December via Microsoft Teams.
