Job Description

The Role

As a key member of our Corporate Communications’ External Information Services team, you will be responsible for responding to requests made under the Freedom of Information Act (FOI) and for various data protection activities, to ensure compliance with information rights legislation. 

Although key responsibilities will be centred on Freedom of Information requests you will be expected to develop your understanding of the team’s wider activities to undertake other work to support business resilience. 

There will also be exciting opportunities to get involved with project work and to contribute to the CAA’s information strategy and compliance activities. 

This role will especially be of interest to someone who has a high level of creativity and innovation, seeking to work proactively with business areas to improve information available to the public. 

About you

You’ll work in a team that manages high volumes of work so you must be able to work well both independently and also as part of a team.  The nature of the work can be unpredictable, so you’ll need to be able to adapt your focus to unexpected tasks and demands.

Ideally you’ll be a qualified FOI Practitioner or, alternatively, be able to demonstrate extensive knowledge and experience of information rights law and practices and we’d be happy to support you to obtain a qualification if desired.

You’ll need to be able to demonstrate excellent written communication skills, which is essential to formulate and structure responses to complex issues.

Interview Date: w/c 9 May 2018

Closing Date: 27th April 2018
