A consumer brands company is seeking to hire a Data Protection & Privacy Counsel to join their growing legal team, taking a lead role in driving forward the company’s privacy programme.

Joining a small but established legal function, this role has been created following the growing workload the legal team have been managing with privacy and security issues, particularly in light of the GDPR. This role will take a central position in managing the firms approach to the new regulations, supported by senior management within the legal department, and with significant interaction and collaboration with the wider business.

The company are ideally seeking candidates with 3-6 PQE, though will consider candidates outside this range who can demonstrate the required experience.  Candidates will ideally have in-house experience in the FMCG sector, but those seeking to move in-house from a good private practice firm are also encouraged to apply.

This is an excellent opportunity for a talented privacy lawyer to take on a good deal of ownership at a relatively early point in their career.
