Duties & Responsibilities

As the Senior Data Steward, you will be the first contact for all decisions relating to Partnership data, specific to your domain, ensuring our business is compliant with GDPR and all related legislation. This will include operational processes and data which are held in source systems.

The Partnership's ultimate purpose is the happiness of all its members, through their worthwhile and satisfying employment in a successful business. Because the Partnership is owned in trust for its members, they share the responsibilities of ownership as well as its rewards - profit, knowledge and power.
