As a Technology and Data Protection lawyer at Bird & Bird you will have the opportunity to work on varied data protection and technology projects in a truly international environment. We have a strong presence in the Nordic region, which offers our lawyers the opportunity to work together with their Swedish and Danish colleagues on interesting Nordic and international assignments. As we are the leading firm in business sectors where technology plays a role, we are growing and are now looking for new talent to become part of our success story.
We are looking for an Associate (0-3 years' work experience) to join our dynamic commercial and data protection team, to help clients in Finland, in the Nordics and across the world to comply with complex data protection and technology related legal challenges. You might be freshly graduated or have a few years' experience in data protection and/or relevant commercial law matters. While the focus of this position is in data protection law, we expect from a successful candidate to be interested in the whole area of commercial law and to be able to familiarize yourself with new and developing areas of law.
We value candidates with a willingness to learn and persistence to solve difficult problems in our clients' best interest. We are looking for dedicated team players who enjoy challenges and our fast-paced international environment. The person we seek will have good analytical skills, understand the bigger picture and have excellent attention to detail. Our working environment requires fluency in Finnish and English, and for this Nordic position we also require Swedish as a working language. You are based in Finland with an option to work part-time from our Stockholm office.
We offer an opportunity to work in a challenging and rewarding working environment in one of the leading law firms globally. We take pride in our culture and reputation for having a professional, efficient but friendly and informal working environment. For us, our employees are an invaluable asset and we look after their well-being and continuously invest in their development, e.g. by offering a wide range of local and international training and secondment opportunities.
Have we captured your interest? Please send your application and CV by 5 August to firstname.lastname@example.org with the title "Data Protection Recruitment". We will review the applications continuously as they arrive. All applications are treated in confidence. The position will be filled as soon as suitable candidate is found.
