Northampton – with hybrid/flexible opportunities

About us

We’re Northamptonshire Children’s Trust, an independent, not-for-profit organisation established in November 2020 to deliver children’s services to both North and West Northamptonshire Councils.

Our ambition is to improve the lives of children and their families, with a focus on ensuring a positive impact on those most in need of protection and care. Operationally independent from the Councils, we have a unique opportunity to be more agile and adaptable in our approach to delivery, and to explore new ways of working. We’re developing a culture that allows the highest standard of service to flourish so that we can consistently deliver the best outcomes for children, young people and our community.

About the role

As an Information Governance Specialist, you’ll act as the first point of contact for any subject access requests, ensuring accurate records are maintained and correspondence is compliant with legislation, regulations and policies. Thanks to your information governance and public sector experience, you’ll be confident contributing to the development of guidance documents as well as implementing support services as required. Plus, you’ll regularly review policies to ensure they are in compliance with information governance.

You’re good with data, and have excellent interpersonal skills, so you’ll be able to translate complex technical issues and deliver education, training and development related to information governance to all staff. This will include providing high quality advice and support on the application of information rights law. You’ll also assist in completing data protection impact assessments and ensure the effective management and delivery of assigned information governance tasks. That’s why you’ll be organised and able to manage and prioritise your workload. What’s more, you’ll represent the organisation and its interests, keep updated on current local and national policy, and support the improvement of tools and techniques within your team.

Working for the Children’s Trust

When you work with us, we’ll expect a lot from you, but there’s also a lot you’ll get in return. As well as a generous holiday entitlement and a fantastic employee discount scheme, we also offer additional maternity leave options and the chance to be part of the local government pension scheme. Plus, we’re committed to building a skilled, knowledgeable and flexible workforce, that promotes innovation and strives for continuous improvement – so you’ll benefit from great training, as well as loads of development opportunities. Join us and you’ll be part of an inclusive, supportive environment where you’re empowered to make good professional decisions and take your career to new heights.
