Your opportunity

This is a fantastic opportunity for a results driven individual to join the Deloitte Business Security (DBS) team.  

You will report to the Director and Strategic Lead for Privacy, working primarily with her, and alongside a small team of privacy lawyers and wider colleagues in DBS in London and Quality & Risk Operations in Cardiff.   Deloitte’s in-house Data Protection team is responsible for providing Data Protection / Privacy advice and compliance support to the Firm.  A dynamic and flexible individual is required to help meet the increasingly high demands placed on this busy, exciting and innovative team.

Deloitte offers a unique opportunity for someone to join the Data Protection team and develop new skills in Data Protection / Privacy compliance through a blend of technical and advisory work.  Be part of an expanding team where you can have exposure to privacy issues across the Firm.  You will benefit from ongoing training and structured development in a supportive culture.

Your work, your choice

How long does impact take? How long is a piece of string? How many seconds does a solution contain? How can we possibly tell? After all, impact can be huge or small. Immediate or years in the making. At Deloitte we believe the best impact is the value we add, not the hours we sit at our desk.

We, therefore, carefully consider agile ways of working, both formal and informal, that allow for the best impact for our people and our clients. If the working pattern you are looking for is not specifically indicated below, we are happy to discuss alternative arrangements.
