About our Client

A truly global player, this renowned business is one of the world's largest and most well known diversified media and advertising companies.  Through their partnerships they create compelling dialogue, initiate radical collaboration and challenge the status quo.  They put their people at the forefront of their mission, supporting them through their journey while fostering a progressive culture and working environment.

About the role

You will play a key role supporting integrated data and technology business units by providing straight forward and strategic advice on privacy, GDPR and commercial and technology agreements.  Diversity will be the central theme, but some of the key tasks this role entails are:
  • Working on implementing best practice data governance across data and technology products and general business operations;
  • Undertaking privacy assessments and assisting with the design, implementation and maintenance of privacy compliance frameworks; 
  • Drafting and negotiating commercial contracts with advertising clients and industry-leading tech, SAAS and data companies and start-ups.
This is a role where you will be supported to expand your skills, with areas such as IP, corporate, litigation and business skills being some of the key sectors for you to grow your expertise.

About you

You could already be in private practice thinking about that “first move in house”, or a Legal Counsel seeking a step up and exposure to a global business.  Either way we know you will have some great skills to bring to the table based on your commercial legal experience within the technology, data and privacy/GDPR space.

Taking that next step can be a tough decision and we know you will have some questions about this exciting opportunity.  For a full position description and confidential discussion please get in touch with Lee Ruddy on 0450363147.
