Data Privacy Consultant

The role

We are not a traditional consulting firm. We are different in what we do, and even more in how we do it. We are an innovation and transformation consultancy, who believe in the power of ingenuity to build a positive human future in a technology-driven world. As strategies, technologies and innovation collide, we create opportunity from complexity. At PA, we are dedicated to serving clients with a broad range of services and capabilities within project teams. The culture is professional, pragmatic, solutions-oriented, and always with a view to the human angle as innovation and transformation happens when humans are engaged and motivated to move the company.

Being an expert in privacy isn’t enough, establishing trust and confidence when doing business and carrying out personal transactions is of vital importance in an increasingly interconnected world. You will help ensure that our clients meet their duty of responsibility to ensure customer, partner, and third-party information is adequately protected, particularly as technology transforms the way we interact.  

Our Data Privacy Consulting Services help organizations assess and achieve compliance, create new business strategies to take advantage of the new legislation, monitor trends and technology, adopt new technology to make compliance more effective and implement the people and process governance to make data privacy part of business as usual. 

As part of our Team your experience will bring fresh solutions to new, and established, compliance requirements.

Your involvement will vary from assisting in delivering data privacy projects to acting as a subject matter expert on them or to leading a team, typically involving both PA and client staff. Furthermore, you may be involved in development of the team and in proactively identifying and pursuing opportunities for further business and team growth. 

Ideally, you are an established consulting professional with experience in delivering projects focused on data protection and privacy laws or a graduate with a relevant degree and great interest in data privacy, data governance and information security. 

You should also have the following skills/experiences: 

  • Proven experience with relevant data protection and privacy laws and regulations (e.g. CCPA, EU GDPR, Privacy Shield) and industry standards and frameworks, such as GAPP and BCR 
  • Possession of relevant qualifications such as CIPM, CIPT, CIPP/E, CISM, CISSP, and/or HCISSP, as well as involvement in industry related organizations (e.g. IAPP, ISACA, (ISC)²) are desirable. Where you do not have the qualifications, we will support you in achieving them 
  • The ability to efficiently understand client organizations and their business model and to tailor relevant processes to privacy requirements 
  • To communicate effectively with different stakeholders (e.g. business, legal, IT, security) about data protection and privacy matters 
  • An analytical mindset, with a focus on producing quality work in a results-oriented environment.
