You should have experience managing information & cyber security risk as a manager & strategic thinker from a similar Compliance or Risk team, less as a technology expert (as the firm has a well-staffed IT team to support this role).  Any previous experience from a law firm (or other professional services firm) is useful but more important is experience in both data protection legislation (including the Data Protection Act 2018 & UK/ EU GDPR) and information security controls (ideally including ISO27001 if possible)

NB the firm has offices nationally and the role can be based at any of these or else be fully home-based in the UK but with monthly (paid) travel to their Midlands office where the main IT team is based.

So, if that sounds like you, then please send your details to our MD, David Symes FCA, at (including a contact no) however please note we cannot reply to all applications so only successful applications will be contacted (although under no circumstances are your details ever passed on without your specific permission).
