Job Description

If you understand the regulatory landscape that governs the use of information technology this is an ideal opportunity to apply your expertise in a refreshingly collaborative, collegiate environment.

What's the role?

You'll be based in the Shell Ethics and Compliance Office (SECO), part of our global data privacy legal team. Here, you'll apply your broad knowledge of applicable and emerging data privacy laws and regulations to advise a diverse group of stakeholders on a range of privacy issues, including privacy-by-design programs and compliance with international privacy laws.

When you're not liaising with colleagues across the business, you'll also be drafting and negotiating complex agreements related to the collection, use and transfer of personal data. It's vital that you can think strategically: we'll trust you to weigh up the immediate and longer term impacts on the business of different legal courses of action and quickly identify risks.

Company Description

Shell started operations in the United Kingdom more than 110 years ago. Since then we have grown into a leading innovative oil and gas company that rewards its employees by investing heavily in their careers and learning. Our people are our greatest asset, and our commitment to your career will see you thrive in a work environment that offers an industry-leading development programme. When your ideas travel, Shell will benefit and innovation will thrive. Shell has a key role to play in helping meet the UK's growing energy demand, whilst using innovative technologies to develop cleaner energy. We are the largest FTSE 100 company in the UK by market capitalisation, and make a significant contribution to the UK economy. As well as processing 35% of the gas coming into the UK, we serve more than four million customers at our filling stations each week. Shell employs some 6,400 skilled staff as well as many contractors.


What we need from you

We're keen to hear from men and women with experience in advising on a wealth of data privacy matters including, analytics, information security standards, incident response management and data governance. Technically, you'll need as many of the following as possible on your CV:

  • Well versed with the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and other global privacy laws in Asia and America.
  • A combination of in-house and private practice experience.
  • Knowledge of international privacy laws and consumer privacy laws.
  • Ideally, experience of supporting global projects.

It's your personal skills that will make the difference. If you're a confident communicator (on paper and in person) who enjoys sharing knowledge andworking collaboratively, you'll be in your element here. In particular, we're looking for strong influencing skills; you're comfortable working with senior stakeholders and overcoming resistance.

Life moves fast at Shell, so flexibility and organisational flair are essential coupled with sound judgment, initiative and (not least) a sense of humour!
