We are working with a major professional services firm in Leeds to recruit a Solicitor into the in-house Legal and Regulatory team - to focus primarily on data protection.
This major brand name firm is known for its strong client relationships, built on successful delivery across national and international markets. The firm attracts the best talent and encourages employees to fulfil their potential in an environment where they are valued.
Within the Risk team, you will be working with colleagues around the business to develop and implement policies and procedures and ensure compliance with new legislative and regulatory requirements. You will play an active role in the development and roll-out of data and cyber related risk and compliance initiatives across the firm and advise colleagues in relation to compliance with GDPR and other data protection regulations.
It is likely that you will have strong commercial legal experience, gained in an in house or major law firm environment. Data protection specific experience is not a prerequisite, you will be guided by an experienced team but must have a clear interest in developing expert knowledge in this area.
This role could suit an NQ Solicitor or somebody with up to c. 3 years PQE. However this has been given as a guideline and those who fall outside of this bracket are encouraged to apply.
To hear more about this In-House Solicitor opportunity in Leeds please call Sophie Linley on 0113 236 6711 or another member of the Private Practice team at Sacco Mann.
