Junior GDPR Consultants
IT Governance is an internationally recognised provider of professional services and advice in the information security and privacy sector, and the leading provider of assistance for organisations preparing for EU GDPR compliance.
We now have an exciting opportunity to train as a GDPR consultant, providing advice to a wide variety of clients, across multiple sectors and in states throughout the EU. With data protection and cyber security practices a rapid area of growth, and the requisite skills being far and few between, this is an excellent opportunity for aspiring lawyers to distinguish themselves from the competition by developing a knowledge base and skill set that will be invaluable to law firms as this practice area continues to expand.
Commitment to your professional development: On starting your role, you will have the opportunity to qualify in six internationally recognised certifications focusing on data protection, cyber security and information security.
Client-facing work: You will be working independently and responsible for managing your own client relationships. You will be analysing data protection legislation and, on that basis, providing privacy advice to a mixture of clients, which may include working with blue chip and FTSE 100 companies. This means that you will need to develop a thorough understanding of your clients’ business, allowing you to tangibly present that much sought-after commercial awareness that private practice and in-house firms require.
A high level of responsibility and challenging work: IT Governance is rapidly expanding to meet the growing demand for consultancy advice on the new EU GDPR. This means that you will have a high level of responsibility for analytical and research projects, and you will not be limited to the administrative work typical of graduate roles.
Sufficient time to apply for training contracts: While we expect you to be fully committed to your role and to your clients, we understand that training contract applications take a considerable amount of time to write. Your hours of work will generally be between the hours of 09:00 to 17:30, but there will be the need to work additional hours to meet client requirements. This will, however, leave you time to make successful applications for your future.
You will have:
- A proactive, commercial and organised approach;
- An interest in data protection, with particular focus on the EU GDPR and its implications for organisations;
- Outstanding written and verbal communication skills;
- Computer literacy;
- The ability to learn complex information and communicate it in an accessible way;
- A degree or equivalent professional qualification, preferably in law, IT or a business-related subject;
- Fluent English, with at least one other language native to the EU being an advantage.
We are committed to developing our staff and encourage personal development. We provide ongoing training and development for all our consultants throughout their careers with us.
