Cyber Security & Data Protection Solicitor

  • £45000 - £65000 per annum
  • Kingston Upon Hull, East Riding of Yorkshire
  • Permanent

Award winning, innovative firm which operates more like an in-house organisation rather than a traditional law firm requires a Cyber Security and Data Protection Solicitor to join their expanding team in Hull. This firm has gone from strength to strength in recent years recognised not only by the exponential but sensible growth, but also by the quality and volume of work they have to offer their lawyers.

The UK's data protection and cyber security landscape continues to change and grow and as a result our client requires an additional Solicitor to join their team. Our client would ideally like someone with current experience in cyber security and data protection law, but they appreciate these individuals are not easy to find. They would also be willing to consider candidates from a regulatory background who have transferable skills and experience. For instance, those who have experience in dealing with regulators and representing individuals or organisations in regulatory matters.

In addition to the regulatory element of this role, our client requires someone with excellent litigation experience who will be able to competently handle cyber crime claims and investigate the loss and determine whether to pay loss as well as running liability claims.

The role will also include elements of business development as the firm expand their client base further.

Our client is looking for a Solicitor with at least 3+ PQE, however, this is only provided as a guide and our client is happy to consider candidates who fall out of this banding who have the relevant skills and experience. Additionally, it is essential that the successful candidate is personable and an excellent communicator as they will be required to liaise with a number of professionals including regulators, cyber experts, insurers and brokers etc.

This is ideally a full-time position, located in Hull, however, this firm is extremely agile and many employees spend more time working from home than in the office.
