About the role
Data takes pride of place in Virgin Media’s digital agenda. If you’re passionate about change and looking to join a team who are on a disruptive journey, you’re knocking on the right door. This role will be at the epicentre of our digital transformation, helping us create an industry leading data estate to support the way in which we build connections that really matter.
In role, you’ll be a privacy-savvy technologist that can translate policy into practical terms. This is because you'll understand, firstly, what the law requires and, secondly, how those requirements can be put into practice. In the team, our privacy engineers are the link between legal experts and technologists who can achieve the ethical awareness.
So that's what we're after, but what makes us special?
The telecommunications industry in its current form is pretty uninspiring. But we’re fixated on mixing that up. Our aim is to leave the pack far behind, by delivering some of those once-in-a-lifetime, rocket-to-the-stars ideas that turn the industry and customer expectations on their heads.
And why do we do it? Well, we make no secret of the fact, we want to become the most recommended brand, by our people and our customers. A massive part of that journey is about how we ensure that our brilliant people have a working environment in which they can truly belong and thrive. For us, it's critical that every single person can bring, and be, their whole selves at work, and we're working hard every day to achieve this.
Tell me more, tell me more…
The privacy engineer is a critical role, driving the implementation of privacy by design in the design and development of processes, products and services, helping to build viable data protection compliance solutions that enable innovation and growth.
The must haves:
Experience in working with software engineers, developers, designers and analytics team to help build viable data protection compliance solutions
A background in using privacy-enhancing technologies (PETs) to achieve specific privacy and data protection functionality
Ability to cut through technical complexity and define risk-based, pragmatic solutions
CIPP/T or equivalent privacy certification
Other stuff we're looking for...
Results orientation, willingness to commit to a direction and aim to completion in an agile and ambiguous environment
Proven ability to manage adversity, results-oriented situations and conflict
Create and reinforce a psychologically safe, inclusive working environment
Collaborative work ethic with emphasis on creating strong relationships, knowledge sharing and feedback culture
What's in it for you?
We know that benefits mean so much more than the 'stuff' we can give you, so we offer a wide range of support, rewards and tools - all focused on helping you to prioritise what really matters.
All work and no play just isn't our style! We're already planning our future ways of working, for when life becomes a little more normal again. We're constantly evolving our approach to enable you to find a great work life balance.
If you go on to be successful in your application, some of the many benefits include:
25 days' annual leave, plus UK bank holidays
A defined contribution pension scheme, run by Fidelity, matched up to 10%
An annual bonus of up to 15%, based on company performance
Access to wellbeing benefits such as the Unmind App, personal medical cover (which you can opt to upgrade to cover loved ones) and critical illness cover
Season ticket loans
Your birthday off every year, to treat yourself
The option to buy and sell up to 5 days leave, to suit your personal needs
