Privacy Specialists

Privacy Specialists

Scania is now undergoing a transformation from being a supplier of trucks, buses and engines to a supplier of complete and sustainable transport solutions.

GDPR implementation at Scania - done and dusted? No, we are gradually incorporating it into our daily operations. Although Privacy and Data Protection is nothing new to Scania the GDPR, the General Data Protection Regulation, requests that we change our way of working. A Group Data Protection Office shall be established, hence this recruitment of two persons, to support and monitor the Scania organisation in changing the way of working and doing the right things right in relation to privacy and data protection. Short-term we are mainly thinking Europe and GDPR compliance but mid-term there are no geographical nor legal restrictions and the aim is rather to think Privacy. The right candidates are expected to influence and contribute to the development of the Data Protection Office, to make it productive and highly appreciated. The Data Protection Office is part of the Group Governance Risk and Compliance function but is also part of an active cross-functional network. In this role you will be reporting to the Group Data Protection Officer.

Job description

Many of the Group Data Protection Office (DPO) duties shall be shared in between the DPO and the two persons recruited but clearly it will relate to the specialist competences.

The tasks include but are not limited to;
  • Advice and train the business on legal/regulatory compliance
  • Monitor risk & compliance status
  • Provide internal stakeholders with recurrent status reports
  • Improve processes and methods, such as for the central record of processing activities
  • Implement and establish adequate system support for GDPR related duties
  • Participate in Data Protection projects within the group
Two different profiles

We are looking for two result-oriented candidates with different professional profiles to cover the wide field of Privacy and Data Protection. Both need to be approachable, collaborative and, at the same time able to take own initiatives and work independently. Furthermore the positions mean international cooperation and travels, thus fluent written and spoken English is a must.

Legal profile
  • Master of Laws
  • Knowledge and interest in Privacy and Data protection
Experience in the field of personal data regulations is positive but not a must, the ambition to become a Privacy specialist is more important.

IT profile
  • Graduate or master’s degree in engineering
  • 3+ years of experience in software development, programming, embedded systems, autonomous vehicles or equivalent
Practical experience from “data protection by design and by default”, as stipulated by the GDPR, is an advantage although the endeavour to support the colleagues in charge of that task is more important.


We look forward to receiving your application, including CV and cover letter. Selections will be made continuously through the process.

Should you have any questions please contact the DPO Ann-Sofie Brodin, or +46 7031 85108
