The post-holder will be expected to act as a source of specialist knowledge on information governance issues, including Data Protection (and the General Data Protection Regulation), Freedom of Information and any related legislation and/or national guidance and be able to analyse complex information to present in a clear format appropriate to different levels of staff and knowledge.
