“Working at the EDPS is a unique and enriching job; it is a chance to collaborate with colleagues from diverse backgrounds. As part of my role, I have the challenging task of investigating complaints received from individuals whose personal data is processed by European institutions. In addition, I carry out audits during which I inspect whether European institutions are following the applicable data protection regulation.
My responsibilities do not stop there; I have also had the opportunity to train and advise staff members from across all European institutions on how they can protect individuals’ personal data in their day-to-day work. Joining the EDPS has given me the satisfaction that I can contribute to promoting a data protection culture within the EU institutions, ensure that individuals’ fundamental right to privacy is protected, as well as further develop a multitude of skills along the way. “
