About the job

Ready to push the limits of what’s possible? Join Sanofi in one of our corporate functions and you can play a vital part in the performance of our entire business while helping to make an impact on millions around the world. As Senior Privacy Manager within our Ethics and Business Integrity (EBI) team you’ll sit within the Global Privacy Office of the CHC Data Privacy Team and focuses on the execution of the Data Privacy Program and the support to day-to-day business operations to ensure compliance with applicable data protection laws.

The Sanofi CHC's Data Privacy Team consists of a Global Data Privacy Office, a network of Local Privacy Officers (‘LPO’) with regional, sub-regional or country oversight, and a Global Privacy Office with global oversight. While the main responsibility of a LPO is to support Sanofi CHC initiative and ensure the implementation of appropriate data protection measures and controls at local level, the Global Privacy Office responsibility is three-folded and includes:

  • Developing, maintaining and overseeing the overall functioning of the Sanofi CHC’s Privacy Management System (policies, guideline, standards, tools, procedures, self-help and training resources);

  • Serving as a shared support services team for the network of LPOs;

  • Providing day-to-day support to other Sanofi CHC functions in respect to their global initiatives.

At Sanofi Consumer Healthcare, we build trusted and loved brands that connect with hundreds of millions of consumers worldwide. Our mission is to enable better self-care for individuals and communities, while also contributing to a healthier planet. We strive to act as a force for good by integrating sustainability along our business and employees’ mission and operate responsibly from both a social and environmental point of view. To achieve this, we need people who can shape the future of our business and help us on our journey to becoming the best fast-moving consumer healthcare company in and for the world.
