Job Description

Information Lawyer – Local Government – London

We are delighted to be recruiting for a Information Lawyer to join a London based local authority with a great reputation in the market and a busy and developing client base.

This role will run for an initial 3 months with the possibility of extension thereafter, and will pay £35 - £45 per hour dependent upon experience. There will also be opportunities to join the team permanently should the successful candidate be interested.

This assignment will operate on a remote-working basis for the foreseeable future, but there may be an expectation for office working at some point in the future if guidance should change.

The ideal candidate must have prior experience handling information, GDPR and data protection law and practice.

You will be expected to work as a team member in the Information Management team, dealing with the most complex GDPR and FOI cases and advising on exemptions, etc.

The successful candidate wouldn’t strictly be acting as a lawyer but the work is obviously closely linked to the law. Candidates don’t need to be qualified but they do need experience of information management. 


For further information, please send your CV to and someone will be in touch should your be shortlisted.
