Data Privacy Manager - 12 month FTC (Maternity Cover)



Holborn, London, UK
Posted on Thursday, May 16, 2024

GoHenry is a UK-based fintech company created by parents to pioneer financial education. More recently, GoHenry moved into Europe and the US by joining forces with French fintech company PixPay and US investing app, Acorns.

Together, Acorns, PixPay, and GoHenry had over 6 million members across 5 countries. GoHenry offers a debit card and app for kids and teens and companion apps for the family, with in-app tools for sending money, automating allowances, managing chores, setting savings goals, giving to charity, and in-app financial education lessons where kids can watch videos, take quizzes and earn points and badges. This is all designed to help kids and teens build good money habits that will last a lifetime.

Our Legal, Risk and Compliance team provides valuable support across GoHenry and Pixpay. We help with internal legal and compliance matters, data protection and privacy matters and also supporting general corporate governance requirements.

We’re currently looking for a Data Privacy Manager to join us on a 12 month fixed term contract, providing maternity cover. Ideally we’re looking for candidates who’d be available to start no later than July 2024 to enable a handover.

What your day-to-day will look like:

  • Work closely with our Legal, Compliance and Security teams to keep ahead of changes in regulations, understand their implications for GoHenry and help our managers to implement changes. You will also work with these teams to answer queries from the business and help them to understand the implications of their plans.
  • Work closely with our colleagues in the US on global strategic projects.
  • Work with our outsourced Data Protection Officer as required.
  • Work with external legal counsel, in alignment with the UK legal function, to source legal advice as required.
  • Provide advice to the business in relation to the governance and implementation of new cookies and other tracking technology.
  • Provide advice to the business on marketing requirements under PECR and GDPR
  • Lead work to ensure that our Record of Processing is kept up to date and support business developments through the completion/review of documents such as Data Protection Impact Assessments.
  • Assist with designing and delivering bespoke training to our people.
  • Lead on the continued enhancements associated with our compliance with the standards of the ICO’s Age Appropriate Design Code
  • Lead on an assessment of Data Privacy considerations for European subsidiaries trading in France, Spain and Italy including creating and updating a Record of Processing Activities and reviewing relevant policies and procedures.
  • Drive forward strategic projects forming part of our UK Data Privacy agenda.
  • Support GoHenry’ SOC2 engagement by providing evidence for privacy controls.
