The Team

Deliveroo's newly created Data Team is on a mission to create value for the business by leveraging data as a strategic asset, driving efficiencies and cutting costs. Deliveroo is seeking an experienced Data Governance Manager to join the team on a 12 month FTC to help us to realise our data ambitions.

Working closely with Data & Science, Tech, Finance and Legal teams, the Data Governance Manager will help to define and embed data management best practice at Deliveroo. You will assess Deliveroo's data maturity and establish data capabilities to support the business with its data strategy.

The Data Governance Manager will focus their time on completing a Data Management Maturity Assessment. This is a critical activity which will underpin a programme of work to ensure that Deliveroo is using data to create value, and is doing so in an efficient, secure and compliant way. Furthermore, the Data Governance Manager will additionally establish foundational data management controls, including drafting a suite of policies and tracking and monitoring early implementation. Additionally, you would be involved in ancillary activities to support the programme of work, including planning, partner engagement and reporting, communication and training efforts associated.

You will be the bridge between the project team and important partners and therefore you will need to be an engaging and enthusiastic advocate, able to positively represent the wider team.

You will report into the Data Lead. This is a hybrid role requiring three days a week in our London office, in Cannon Street.



  • Review Deliveroo's data maturity assessment materials, approach, and plans and make recommendations on ways to improve content and process to achieve the best outcomes.
  • Be the contact and SME for the Data Maturity Assessment, supporting the wider business to complete it successfully within timeframes.
  • Establish relationships with project partners to encourage participation and engagement with the assessment process.
  • Bring the maturity assessment to completion, to the agreed deadline, scope and quality, by unlocking challenges, managing issues, and escalating problems.
  • Summarise assessment results and report on them in a clear way, highlighting any gaps or risks, and positive findings.
  • Post-assessment, help plan a Data Management Implementation Roadmap, which sets out a clear pathway to embedding capabilities and controls which propel Deliveroo's overall data maturity.
  • Define and draft data policies and lead on the sign-off process of said assets, including, for example, leading on the review process and capturing partner feedback, managing version control, and making changes.
  • Promote the initial embedding of policies, including monitoring and tracking adoption and compliance and supporting engagement, communication and training efforts to achieve this.



  1. 5+ years working in a Data Management/Governance role, either in a technology company, technology-focused scale-up, or in a consulting capability working with similar clients.
  2. Expertise in Data Management/Data Governance, with one or more recognised industry qualifications (e.g. Certified Data Management Professional (CDMP)).
  3. Experience conducting data maturity assessments for high-growth companies - with specific experience using one or more industry standard frameworks e.g. DCAM, DCMC, DAMA/DMBOK.
  4. Agile approach to implementing Data Management controls and capabilities
  5. Experience writing and advocating clear fit-for-purpose data policies, which encourage use of data and protect the business.
  6. Understanding of Data Protection and Security principles, standards, and controls, and their application in a business environment.
