Information Governance across Europe
April 2, 2012
ADVERTISEMENT: Managing Director of the DLM Forum
Negotiable Package of €60k plus bonus Location: Europe
Following a policy review the DLM Forum seeks to recruit a Managing Director who will provide expertise and services to implement its strategic vision, by directing the operational execution of the policies of the Executive Committee of the DLM Forum.
The DLM Forum is a not-for-profit Foundation that was created through an initiative of the European Commission in 1997 with support from the National Archives of European Union member states. The DLM Forum is a pan-European subscription-based community of public archives and parties interested in archives, records and information management throughout Europe and beyond. Its current members include suppliers, end users, consultants, regulatory bodies and associations. The DLM Forum sets standards and guidelines for Information Governance including electronic archiving and records management and MoReq2010, the first of a new generation of specifications that provides Information Governance for users in all government and commercial organisations and for vendors across Europe.
By helping to raise its profile and reputation, the Managing Director will promote the activities of the DLM Forum across Europe and to a wider audience. The successful candidate will be expected to implement a strategy that delivers even more value to its members.
The Managing Director will possess relevant experience in archiving, records management and/or the IT industry from either a government or a commercial background. Experience of setting up events; developing educational services; commissioning and delivering value-added publications and relevant high-quality online services to a subscription-based membership is required.
The Managing Director will report to the Executive Committee. The work requires flexibility in working patterns and will take on average three days per week; overseas travel is a part of the role. The successful candidate will be expected to set up an administrative office in a mutually agreed location, manage revenue collection, provide clerical support and meet defined budgets and goals.
We prefer a candidate who also has experience in developing, proposing, negotiating and implementing project proposals for the European Union and other funding providers.
Due to the pan-European nature of the Forum we would expect the candidate to be fluent in English and preferably another European language.
Remuneration will be negotiable and will be based on the scope of services provided within a basic package plus a bonus that will reflect financial performance.
