About the organisation

Our client is mad about organic veg. It's at the heart of everything they do. They love to grow it, pack it into their iconic veg boxes and deliver it to around 50,000 homes across the UK every week.

The organisation began in 1987, with one field of organic veg, a wheelbarrow and a beaten-up 2CV for deliveries. Our client has grown into a thriving e-commerce business, with four organic farms, two packhouses, a fleet of vans and drivers, a wholesaler, a butchery and an award-winning restaurant. This requires loads of brilliant people; our client employs in areas including IT, logistics, sales, HR, finance, marketing and more besides!

In 2018, the business became employee owned, ensuring their independence and protecting their values forever. Working for our client makes you a ‘co-owner'; every individual is valued, and every voice is heard. Join our client and live life on the veg.

What you'll be doing

As the Data Security and Compliance Officer, you'll lead the specification, development, implementation and evolution of our client's data and security compliance, driving culture change - from within IT, to the whole organisation, including remote sites and their 60+ franchisees. 

Reporting directly to the Chief Technical Officer, you will be highly autonomous, and carry the authority to ensure that data security and compliance is appropriately prioritised.

You will own and maintain the organisation-wide policies and data lifecycles and will put in place appropriate approaches and solutions to ensure their enforcement, including physical security mechanisms where necessary. Finally, you will work with the HR department to specify and deliver training and development objectives to make our client a leader in the field.

You will be comfortable suggesting and defending approaches and care about improving processes, approaches and technology. Most of all though, you will want to work with like-minded and highly capable people to deliver fantastic ethical products secured by YOUR systems and policies.

This is a 12 month fixed-term contract covering maternity, working 40 hours a week (usually 8:30am to 5:00pm).
