Job Description

I have an interesting opportunity for a Senior Information Governance Lead based in Buckinghamshire. This is a greenfield project and will involve taking it from 'blank page' to full implementation stage.

It will focus on data governance spanning across 4 countries, so international experience will be required.

As part of a wider information security agenda, my client have initiated an information governance programme to review how they are classifying and marking documents and how they're being stored and handled.

The programme will:

  • Analyse current data volumes through a discovery process
  • Update the model design for information governance
  • Define the governance structures, roles and processes required to sustain the model
  • Apply the model to current and new system architectures
  • Determine retention policy and archiving solutions
  • Consider appropriate solutions to enforce and monitor compliance
  • Determine the best migration and implementation approach to the updated model
  • Develop and deploy best in class education on information governance across the business
  • Review current documentation
  • Rapidly understand the scope and objectives of the Information Governance Programme along with the organisation's culture
  • Determine the most effective approach to executing the programme of work - identify quick wins, dependencies, critical path etc
  • Produce an estimate of time and cost to execute the programme
  • Prepare a presentation of the proposed work for C-Suite level

You will need to take the idea and be able to convert it into a model which is sustainable. You'll be expected to create a presentation explaining, in detail, how the model will be implemented in realtion to cost and time.

This is an exciting opportunity for someone who likes to take projects from 'cradle to grave' and leave a footprint in a business.
