Job Description

My client is a successful global consumer-centric company looking to build out a successful data protection and data privacy function to support a major GDPR implementation. They are looking for an experienced and seasoned Project Manager (ideally with some form of data or technology exposure), to take ownership for the on-going growth and success of this function.

The ideal candidate will have min. 8 years commercial experience running and leading end-to-end projects of scale. You will be incredibly detail orientated with technical and/or compliance knowledge with experience in creating and presenting final documentation to C-level executives.

The role requires working with cross-functional groups (operations, technical, financial) as well as external consulting bodies. You will work to better understand how departments protect and utilize their data, and develop projects based on how to overcome and improve GDPR and data compliance. Although this role does not specifically need to have GDPR experience the ability to understand how this affects a business and impacts productivity is key. You will put out fires before they happen.

Experience working with data or understanding technical concepts will be incredibly useful in this role. All projects will focus around data and how it is protected.

Required Skills & Experience

Extensive project management experience with direct experience in running and leading large scale global projects
Firm knowledge of compliance and maintaining the integrity of documentation
Exposure to presenting and working with business leaders and stakeholders
Cross-functional experience and experience working with outside bodies and vendors
Ability to work within the USA without Visa sponsorship

This is an exciting opportunity to join an exciting and rapidly growing company where you will take a lead role on the development of huge-scale on-going projects globally.

This role is based in Woodlands Hills, LA and would require being in the office - please keep this in mind when/if applying.
