The London Borough of Merton are currently seeking a full time, permanent Information Governance and Records Management Manager.
We are looking for innovative, energetic and enthusiastic applicants, who want an opportunity to develop the Information Governance Team to deliver a high quality service and to champion best practice in Information governance and encourage change. You will work with colleagues right across the Council and with our partners to ensure that our information governance processes are robust and that we respect the rights of data subjects.

What really matters to us is that you have a good grasp of the principles and practical application of information governance and the determination to raise standards across the organisation.
You will be reporting to the Head of Law, Procurement and Information Governance at the South London Legal Partnership (SLLP) and will be working closely with the Information Governance Lawyer in SLLP. You will be also managing up to 3 officers in the IG team.
In return we offer you a supportive working environment where creativity and innovation are encouraged. You will be able to work flexibly either from home or from our offices in Morden. We also offer the following benefits:
Generous annual leave entitlement
Generous local government pension scheme package
Access to wider training and development qualifications
Access to an Employee Assistance Scheme which provides advice & counselling service
The post is offered on a full time, permanent basis (35 hours a week although there are a number of flexible working options including such as compressed hours).
