The ideal candidate will have deep experience of data protection.

While it is expected that the right person will probably have between 1 and 6 years' PQE, more important is that you understand data protection and are smart, proactive, and passionate about innovative technology and working with like-minded legal professionals within a fast-paced and challenging environment.
