Description

An iconic British brand is looking for a Data Protection Paralegal, or recently qualified Solicitor, to join its In-house team and advise on Data Protection, GDPR, and Compliance.

Reporting into the Head of Legal and Head of Compliance, the successful Data Protection Paralegal / Counsel will be responsible for;

· Day to day support and guidance to the business worldwide on all aspects of data protection and data governance
· Advising the business on GDPR and any further changes to data protection legislation
· Assisting in the completion of data inventories, facilitating on-going data audits, and completing risk assessments
· Supporting the response to data breach incidents and the development of data breach management and response plans
· Drafting complex information law documents, including data transfer agreements, privacy impact assessments, NDAs, data sharing agreements, and privacy notices
· Reviewing, drafting, and negotiating a variety of commercial contracts, and providing legal advice on broader issues, such as litigation, intellectual property, and IT

The role would suit a Paralegal or recently qualified Solicitor who has had significant hands-on experience in Data Protection. Ideally, this will have been in an In-house environment but we're equally keen to speak to candidates from Private Practice.

This is an exceptional opportunity to work for an iconic brand that is recognised worldwide.
