  • Ensuring the safe and compliant use of data and technology. You will lead the review of assurance activities on some of CTP’s most high-profile data and technology programmes. You will work with HQ, regional and partner stakeholders to assess whether strategic, legal, ethical and technical requirements and standards have been met.

You will provide guidance on how to use the framework. And you will work with operational and functional stakeholders to identify and recommend actions to mitigate risk and ensure compliance with assurance obligations.
