The Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead is geographically set in a major tourism area with attractions including Windsor Castle, Legoland and Ascot Racecourse.
As a Royal Borough with the Royal Family on the doorstep, it is a desirable place to live and work. There are excellent transport connections to London (30 minutes by train) and the West of England, with the new Elizabeth Line (Cross Rail) opening in Maidenhead later this year.
The Information Governance team is looking to recruit an enthusiastic individual to join its well-regarded, small and friendly team. If you are looking for a challenge and would like to develop a career in delivering Information Governance services in a local authority context then this could be the ideal position for you.
