Job Description

Leading global financial institution is seeking a lawyer to be the subject matter expert for data related matters as the APAC Data Protection Officer (DPO). In addition to this, you will also work with other lawyers in assisting with broader general legal matters such as reviewing/drafting agreements and advising on technology legal matters.

The successful candidate will be a lawyer with approximately 4-8 years of PQE with relevant experience gained with leading law firms or in in-house positions. Lawyers from non-financial services organisations are encouraged to apply as this could be a great opportunity to leverage prior data privacy expertise into the financial services sector. This could also be a great first move in-house. Excellent communication and interpersonal skills are required.
