Blackwood currently have a vacancy for a Governance & Information Officer based within our Head Office in Edinburgh.
 
We are looking for a highly skilled and enthusiastic professional who can work with our management team to support the Board and help deliver Blackwood’s Business Plan.  This individual will lead Blackwood’s project to implement the changes to the new General Data Protection Regulations, as well as prospective changes to the Freedom of Information Act, ensuring our information management processes continue to comply.
 
With excellent interpersonal and organisational skills, the candidate will have demonstrable experience in maintaining and streamlining processes as well as managing budgets.  Some experience of organising meetings and minute-taking would be desirable but not essential.  The successful candidate must be able to prioritise their workload, manage deadlines and work calmly under pressure.  The candidate must work well within a team to ensure the effective day-to-day running of the office and provide administrative support as required.
