The Irish Department of Justice has listed vacancies for two new data protection commissioners on publicjobs.ie. The development comes after the Irish government approved a new structure for the Data Protection Commission (DPC) in July 2022, which includes three commissioners. Helen Dixon, the current commissioner, will become the chair under this new structure but is set to leave next year when her term expires. The new commissioners will oversee EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) compliance of multiple technology companies and potentially make decisions on legal matters concerning artificial intelligence. Candidates for the roles must have a comprehensive understanding of relevant legal systems and frameworks, as well as a deep understanding of ICT and data processing methods. Applications for the two vacancies close on 19 October.
