First and foremost, Client is a service business. We look only to recruit proactive, motivated, enthusiastic, customer driven, commercially aware team players, who can clearly demonstrate a passion for what they do and therefore offer an ideal fit with their core values and culture.

Due to their continued growth and European expansion, they require further experienced Data Protection Officers based in the Netherlands with a track record in the role, who are compliance driven, can demonstrate excellent communication and presentation skills and have an ability to influence, encourage and support positive change within an organisation.

Successful candidates will possess the ability to manage the demands of a portfolio of clients and are therefore able to prioritise effectively, navigate conflicting client demands diplomatically and maintain the highest degree of confidentiality and professionalism. The role requires fluency, both written and verbal, in Dutch and English.

We are looking for candidates that value attention to detail and who deliver high quality work within agreed timescales. They must be well presented, with the capacity to work on their own initiative, but also to actively contribute to the constant development of their wider team.

Their services are delivered based on a balance of working remotely from home and visiting occasional visits to clients at their offices. Therefore, a fundamental requirement of the role is the ability to provide sufficient flexibility to accommodate travel and occasional overnight stays that enable full working days to be delivered to the client. The role will also require a quarterly visit to the UK to attend their team days and social events. Therefore, only candidates with the ability to accommodate this requirement should apply. All travel expenses will be covered or reimbursed. You are required to have an EU or UK passport and full driving license, and ideally use of a car.

Their mission is “To inspire and develop one remarkable team, that delivers the extraordinary”, hence their company philosophy is based on a ‘OneTeam’ approach. Contact with management and the other members of the team will be frequent, as are the opportunities for team social activities. This therefore not only fulfils the ongoing requirement to exchange knowledge, share experiences, improve their processes, develop their documentation and constantly improve on the best practice framework employed with their clients, but also to ensure that their new recruits feel very much like an integral part of a motivated, sociable and connected team.
