Legal Counsel, Data Privacy, UAE

We have developed a strong working relationship with this client over the last two years, and they have recently come to us again for assistance in growing their legal team. As a leader in technology and communications, they are seeking a Legal Counsel who can drive forward their Data Privacy (DP) needs.

ROLE: Reporting through to a long standing Senior Legal Counsel and Group General Counsel, you’ll help develop their DP governance program, whilst providing strategic advice and insight over changing risks and protections. The role will cover across the international operations (which spans the wider Middle East, Africa and Asia region) and not just focused into domestic UAE developments.

CANDIDATE: The client has a great team in place and high standards regarding what they need. Some guidance criteria are below:

– An ideal PQE will be around 5+ years but more senior candidates will also be considered.
– Middle East experience is helpful but not required.
– It’s more important that you bring with you experience of leading market knowledge, from say the US or Europe.
– You’ll need to be a lawyer with a distinct specialism in DP.

We have a full job description available, and if you think you can fulfil these criteria, please do contact us to discuss.

REF: PR/219041
