Job offer as data protection lawyer in London

With regard to data protection, you are a true pioneer?

We consult companies and corporations from Europe and around the world on all matters of international data protection. Working together with our clients on-site, we enable them to comply with EU data protection law and national data protection regulations. In this way, our clients gain the complete trust of their customers and contractors and turn data protection into a real competitive advantage.

Lawyer (m/f/d) specialised in data protection

Your perspectives

Travelling, living and working wherever we want is part of the lifestyle of our time. It goes without saying that we also transfer our data to other countries. However, the international transfer of data and the utilisation of service providers around the world poses major challenges for companies. This great freedom goes hand in hand with the equally great responsibility for data protection.

As a lawyer at activeMind.legal, you will help our clients master this balancing act. You enable companies and international corporations to comply with the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and the respective national data protection law at all locations. During this process, you will directly support our clients with concrete implementation and make it possible for them to remain innovative and competitive.

Additionally, you will help build our team at the new location in London and actively shape our international law firm. You will work as a data protection pioneer in Great Britain against the backdrop of our tried and tested processes in Germany. In light of the upcoming Brexit, this is an extremely exciting challenge and a market where you can personally contribute to a better world.

For these tasks, you will receive comprehensive training and on-site practice (if necessary in Germany). We will also equip you with regular training and certifications on data protection law, IT security standards ISO 27001 and BSI baseline protection as well as current security technologies.

As part of our team at three locations, you will always have an experienced contact person or mentor at your side. We enjoy helpfulness, team spirit and self-motivation in our corporate culture every day. You will also benefit from regular team events, flexible working hours and the possibility of working from your home office or on a parental part-time schedule.

Your tasks

As a lawyer at activeMind.legal, you will consult companies and corporations from the UK, EU countries and around the world. The focus of the legal consultation is on international data protection and data protection laws in other (European) countries.

In your position, you will support our clients from our office in London as well as on-site at their places of business. This process will entail, among other things, inspecting the implementation of stipulated data protection measures and training executives, management and employees. As needed, you will also be appointed as our clients’ external data protection officer.
