Job Description

The Compliance Operations Manager will play an important role for Experian in Bulgaria, acting as our local Data Protection Officer (DPO) and advising colleagues on their obligations under GDPR and relevant internal policies. Key day-to-day responsibilities in Bulgaria will include:

  • Identifying and addressing risks of non-compliance with regulation and/or Experian policies that may arise from product or business change initiatives relevant to the Bulgaria market;
  • Advising colleagues on the management of compliance and regulatory risks arising from our relationships with third-party suppliers, clients, agents and resellers; and
  • Engaging with the Commission for Personal Data Protection, as DPO for the market.

However, a critical part of the Compliance Operations Manager's role will be to lead a number of regional projects across EMAP Compliance more widely. Our most significant project is to deliver the configuration, implementation and adoption of a digital data privacy platform, currently deployed in South Africa, across EMAP region more widely (beginning with three individual markets). Specific responsibilities associated with this project will include:

  • Scoping, establishing and delivering a plan to deliver the platform to the chosen markets
  • Working closely with the platform supplier to enlist appropriate technical support for the project, monitor their performance vs SLA and resolve issues or delays where they arise
  • Engaging with Experian's South Africa team to understand 'lessons learned' from their implementation of the platform and determine how these should be applied to the EMAP regional rollout
  • Consulting both business stakeholders ('1st Line of Defence') and Compliance colleagues in relevant markets to understand their specific requirements for the platform and tailor its configuration where appropriate
  • Configuring, preparing and testing the platform to support each stage of the rollout
  • Developing and delivering training to local users of the platform and supporting its adoption
  • Preparing and delivering regular project status updates to relevant colleagues in the 1st Line of Defence and senior Regional and Global Compliance leadership
  • Partnering with key stakeholders in both the 1st and 2nd Lines of Defence (e.g., IT, Data Office, Risk and Legal colleagues) as needed to ensure risks to successful project delivery and/or successful adoption of the platform are identified, assessed and mitigated.


What we expect you to bring:

  • Managerial-level experience of working in a large, regulated, multinational organisation, preferably in the Financial Services sector
  • Proven, recent experience of working within a Compliance or Risk function (or similar) and providing advice and/or assurance
  • A good working knowledge of GDPR or an equivalent Data Protection/Privacy regulation. Note that a formal qualification or certification in this field is not required, but the successful candidate will be required to pursue a certification and support for this will be provided.
  • Proven experience of planning, leading and delivering projects across multiple business units, preferably projects with a significant digital or technology element
  • Experience of developing and delivering high-quality reporting (such as project or committee reporting) designed for a senior leadership audience.
