The team within GBS is busy establishing the function, including the structure of the team, ways of working and processes.  To help guide that work, there is an opportunity for a Data Privacy Expert to join us.

They are also responsible for shaping GBS HR’s data protection compliance strategy, disclosures, and training, both for its own employees as well as third party partners. They partner across Hitachi (e.g., Legal and Information Security) and with third party partners to conduct data protection assessments and audits, ensuring that GBS HR is compliant in its business operations.

This role will be based from any of Hitachi office in India, Europe, the US or Asia and will work with colleagues globally – we have a One Team approach.
