Data Protection People Opportunities

Join Our Team Here In Leeds

Data Protection People are experiencing another period of growth after a successful year for the business. We pride ourselves on our people, they are what separated us from our competition, we hire people not only based on skill but also on their ability to communicate with our clients. Our mission is: Data Protection Made Easy. We believe one of the biggest strengths we have as a business is the ability to translate complex Data Protection law into something that’s easy to understand for all.

Data Protection People are one of the UK’s leading Data Protection Consultancies with client across a wide range of sectors. We provide a number of different Data Protection and Cyber Security services from handling our client’s complex SARs to providing a full audit and deep dive into our client’s processes and procedures.

What is it like working at Data Protection People?

Data Protection People has around 30 members of staff, some work remotely, and most work at our head office here in Leeds. We have a close-knit team of individuals with varying experiences, some members of our team have been working in Data Protection for over 15 years. Some are Law Graduates who were looking for an alternative opportunity after leaving university.

Quote from Myles Dacres, Digital Marketing Manager:

“I joined Data Protection People a little over two years ago, as a Business Development Consultant. After working in the role for 6 months I could see that Data Protection People was completely different on the inside compared to how they appeared on the exterior, the outward facing marketing focused on Data Protection and not on the People, but the People are what makes our business what it is and what separates us from our competition, we hire consultants with personality as well as skill and experience, we want to make communication with our team as engaging as possible as Data Protection can be a hard thing to discuss. Their mission statement was Data Protection Made Easy and that’s exactly what they do, they broke down complex Data Protection Laws, so it was easy for me to understand, and I was someone who previously had no Data Protection experience. I eventually started to work on promotional materials and events that would allow me to show the behind-the-scenes of our brilliant organisation. This quickly became a large part of my role and eventually, I made the switch to full-time marketing. This shows how DPP will allow you to lean into your strengths, if there is something you enjoy doing, they will find a way to allow you to do that more, they understand that if people enjoy their jobs they work harder, you don’t have to fit into a box. Shortly after moving into marketing, I created the Data Protection Made Easy Podcast, which quickly grew to become one of the UK’s biggest Data Protection Communities with over 1000 Subscribers who are all keen to listen to our consultants as they discuss key Data Protection challenges on our podcast. If you are looking for a role with flexibility, and an opportunity to grow, then DPP is a great place to work.”
