Bird & Bird is a highly respected international law firm. But that's only part of the story. We've built our reputation not only on exceptional legal expertise, but also on our ability to think beyond the details of law to meet our clients' needs. We have over 1,200 lawyers worldwide working as a single, cohesive team across 28 offices in Europe, the Middle East and Asia Pacific. In other parts of the world we work with a network of trusted partners, giving us genuine global reach.

The firm offers excellent prospects for progression and our culture provides all our people with world-class support to achieve their ambitions and goals.

It is the policy of Bird & Bird to consider all candidates fairly, regardless of race, sex, sexual orientation, religion, age or disability. We support an agile working environment and are happy to discuss flexible working.

We are looking to recruit a Junior or Mid-level Associate to join our Data Protection team in the London office.

Our leading International Privacy & Data Protection Practice advises a wide range of corporate and other organisations around the world, reflecting the firm's strengths in sectors such as Communications, Media, E-commerce, Financial Services, Health and IT.


The role will involve working on data protection compliance projects, international transfers of data, security breaches and advise on all aspects of online data protection.


We expect experience in the UK data protection arena, although you may have a broader commercial/ IT background, now looking to focus on DP issues. Due to the international nature of the practice, some cross border matter handling experience is desirable, but not essential.

The successful candidate will have:

Excellent academic achievement with a minimum 2:1 degree.
Experience of handling data protection matters gained within a comparable environment and at an appropriate level.
A desire to be working for a truly international firm.

The firm offers excellent prospects for progression and our culture provides all our people with word-class support to achieve their ambitions and goals.
