Data Protection Officer Job Evaluation Rationale

James Jimson made this Freedom of Information request to Torfaen Council

This request has been closed to new correspondence from the public body. Contact us if you think it ought be re-opened.

The request was successful.

Dear Torfaen Council,

Please provide the following:
1) the job evaluation (JE) document that was used to determine the grade/scale of your Data Protection Officer (DPO) as appointed under the GDPR; and
2) the grade/scale/banding of your DPO.

*I will only require this information if your DPO is a dedicated role and is not a shared role e.g. Records Manager and DPO or Governance Officer and DPO.*

For clarification, the JE is the document used (usually by two senior HR staff) to assess a job and assign it within a band/scale. The JE usually looks at things like the number of staff an officer manages, the physical difficulty of the job and the amount of concentration that needs to be paid for extended periods of time.

Please provide this in the most convenient format for yourselves.

Yours faithfully,

James Jimson

Dear James Jimson

 

18/908 FREEDOM OF INFORMATION REQUEST

 

Further to our acknowledgement of your request for information.  I am now
in a position to provide you with a response.

 

You have requested:

 

Please provide the following: 1) the job evaluation (JE) document that was
used to determine the grade/scale of your Data Protection Officer (DPO) as
appointed under the GDPR; and 2) the grade/scale/banding of your DPO. *I
will only require this information if your DPO is a dedicated role and is
not a shared role e.g. Records Manager and DPO or Governance Officer and
DPO.* For clarification, the JE is the document used (usually by two
senior HR staff) to assess a job and assign it within a band/scale. The JE
usually looks at things like the number of staff an officer manages, the
physical difficulty of the job and the amount of concentration that needs
to be paid for extended periods of time. Please provide this in the most
convenient format for yourselves.

 

The authority do not have a Data Protection Officer.  The officers that
deal with Data Protection matters, do so as part of a wider role.

re-published in whole or in part without permission from the copyright
holder. Any copyright statement that forms part of or in any way refers to
the information provided must not be altered or removed.

 

If you have any queries about this letter or are unhappy about the service
you have received in relation to your request and wish to make a complaint
or request a review, please do not hesitate to contact me in writing.

 

If you are not content with the outcome of your complaint, you may apply
directly to the Information Commissioner for a decision. Generally, the
Information Commissioner’s Office (Wales) cannot make a decision unless
you have exhausted the complaints procedure provided by this Council. The
Information Commissioner can be contacted at: The Information
Commissioner’s Office (Wales), 2^nd Floor, Churchill House, Churchill Way,
Cardiff, CF10 2HH. Telephone 016 2554 5297 or e-mail [1][email address].

 

Yours sincerely
