In-house Senior Legal Counsel – Data Protection

Our client is a large international company and market-leading industry name.  It has recently undertaken a comprehensive exercise to ensure compliance with the GDPR and the organisation is looking to recruit a Senior Legal Counsel to support the Head of UK Legal and UK legal Team with ongoing GDPR compliance and respond to ad hoc Data Protection issues. The role will involve supporting a busy procurement function with negotiating material supply contracts for all aspects of the UK business (including but not limited to IT, telecommunications, vehicle leasing and facilities management).

Particular facets of the role include:

  • Having responsibility for ensuring that standard documents (supply side and client facing) remain GDPR compliant as the case law in this area develops;
  • Dealing with requests from Data Subjects and having the ability to influence how these issues are managed;
  • Supporting EMEIA General Counsel and the Data Protection Officer on ad hoc queries regarding the GDPR and Data Protection generally;

  • Supporting the Head of Supply Chain with ad hoc queries regards procurement matters and with UK specific issues arising in relation to global procurement contracts; and
  • Supporting client facing teams selling IT and digital services to the organisation’s clients with contract negotiations.

The ideal candidate will be a senior commercial lawyer with an extensive understanding and experience in Data Protection.  A thorough understanding of the GDPR and experience implementing policy within a company to cater for the GDPR coming into force is essential – this could have also been achieved working as a senior solicitor within a law firm offering clients a specialist service.
