Compliance Specialist


Aarhus, DK, 8000

Do you want to ensure that BESTSELLER is protecting its data, and that we are compliant to relevant standard and regulations?


Then, this is your chance to join the IT Security team in BESTSELLER IT and start your journey with us.


The team
You will be joining a dedicated team of IT security professionals working to protect BESTSELLER. We collaborate with all teams in IT as well as other functions across our global organisation to constantly increase our security level and reduce our risk.


Our responsibility covers the global operations across our value chain – that includes our over 2,700 stores, international markets, partners, vendors and much more. With us, no two days are ever the same, and together we strive to have fun and learn new things every day. We welcome new ideas and make room for experimenting, not only with new technologies, but also with the way we work and collaborate across BESTSELLER.


The job
When you join us, you will be responsible for ensuring that BESTSELLER is compliant to current (and future) rules & regulations regarding GDPR (and related areas) for the IT applications, vendors and other stakeholders.
More specifically, you will be responsible for the following three areas:

  • Ensure that we have “protection by design” by having an updated Data Protection Impact Assessment (DPIA) for all applications and technologies.
  • Ensure that we have an updated Data Processing Agreement (DPA) with all relevant IT stakeholders in our eco-system, and continuously verify the validity of these agreements, including carrying out audits of data controllers.
  • Improving our way-of-working, making it easier for all.


You will be mainly focused on ensuring compliance with applications, systems, vendors, etc., that are handled outside our central IT organization. You are therefore expected to have a proactive outreach to all the different areas of BESTSELLER to assist and ensure that we, as a company, is compliant. 


Your journey with us 
You will join a team dedicated to protecting BESTSELLER and to ensuring compliance to relevant rules and regulations. You will take on a central role in the organization working in close collaboration with our legal team as well as with stakeholders all across the organization and across the globe.


We expect that you want to develop yourself, your competencies and your network. We want to be better, every day, and therefore, we always welcome ideas to how we can improve our way of working. 


BESTSELLER has an informal culture of collaboration across our organization – all over the globe. You will have the opportunity to interact with all levels of the organization. 


Your profile
Most importantly, you are a self-starter, who takes initiative and can ask for help when needed, and you have a structured and analytical approach to your tasks. You understand IT on a conceptual level, which enables you to discuss specifics related to your area with both vendors and internal stakeholders.


You are curious by nature and have a drive to learn more. You have a sense of confidentiality and are comfortable handling confidential information, which you cannot  share with other colleagues, friends or family.
To excel in this role, you have most of the following competences:

  • Knowledge, or interest, within GDPR or other compliance areas
  • Able to report your findings and results efficiently in both written and oral form
  • Able to communicate with every layer of the organisation and every profession
  • Able to communicate fluently in both English and Danish
  • A proficient user of Microsoft Office 365


We look forward to your application
