Experienced Data Management Officer. ESM, Luxembourg. Open until 6 October 2019

Experienced Data Management Officer

Deadline for application: 6 October

The ESM has put in place policies and procedures related to overall information management, which it now seeks to strengthen with data governance. Data governance encompasses the processes and procedures that ensure the integrity of mission-critical data within the organisation. This refers to data used for reporting and decision-making and to support the ESM’s day-to-day operations.

We are looking for an experienced Data Management Officer to develop, implement, and oversee these organisation-wide data management activities. S/he will be responsible for establishing and managing an enterprise data governance implementation roadmap, inclusive of setting strategic priorities for the development of data management capabilities. Additionally, since the ESM has opted for a phased, tactical implementation approach, the Data Management Officer will also be responsible for supporting ongoing data governance-related initiatives. The selected candidate will report to the Chief Corporate Officer.
