Inhouse Legal Counsel and GDPR-Specialist – full time (37 hours per week)

happy job

Exciting legal position with work/life-balance.

Summit is an Assessment and Consultancy firm specializing in individual, talent, leadership, team, and organizational development. Summit is Europe’s leading Hogan distributor with global reach and official distribution rights in Denmark, Sweden, Norway, Finland, the Netherlands, Belgium, and Luxemburg. We are on a great growth journey with lots of opportunities ahead of us.

We place a strong focus on being compliant with GDPR and ensuring that we have Data Processing Agreements (DPAs) with all our customers. Your role will involve managing all GDPR-related activities. Additionally, we frequently require legal support for larger customer contracts, which will also be part of your responsibility.

Your responsibilities:

  • Day-to-day GDPR questions from our customers.
  • Overview and maintenance of GDPR policies and processes.
  • Audit on our sub-processors to ensure GDPR-compliance.
  • Maintenance of our GDPR documentation for customers.
  • Contribute, review and advise on customer contracts, as well as participate in customer meetings as needed for legal assistance.
  • Negotiations with customers when standard DPA and Terms & Conditions are challenged.
  • Point-of-contact to our external Legal advisors and suppliers.
  • Guidance and training of employees in relation to being GDPR-compliant.


To enjoy this role, you should be motivated by:

  • Getting the overall responsibility for all GDPR activities.
  • Working professionally and dynamically with GDPR policies and processes, aiming to improve and mitigate risks, ensuring compliance with legal requirements.
  • Being in a client dialogue with sometimes contradictory interests and where negotiations can be challenging.
  • Handling client’s requests and desires to make changes to the data processing agreement, deviations to standard terms, liabilities etc.
  • Be in contact with clients on a daily basis as well as with your colleagues internally.


Your Qualifications and Experience

You have a robust professional background in GDPR, capable of working independently and responsibly. Your legal expertise should extend to a commercial context, and you should be prepared to engage in meaningful dialogue with our customers. Proficiency in both written and spoken Danish and English is crucial, as most of our material and correspondence is conducted in these languages.

You may have an interest in IT security and technical aspects, with some familiarity with ISAE 3000.

You hold a Master of Laws (cand.jur) or a Master of Science in Business Administration and Commercial Law (cand.merc.jur). You may have worked as e.g. a lawyer, consultant, or Data Protection Officer (DPO) in a role where compliance involves more than the interpretation of paragraphs and articles.

You are a self-enabled, customer oriented and solution-oriented team player. You are flexible with a proactive mindset, and you are determined to deliver high quality services within tight timeframes. Furthermore, you are process oriented and you apply a structured methodical approach to complex challenges in alignment with the rest of the team and the company. Finally, you are detail oriented while still seeing the overall picture.

What we are offering you?

  • A dynamic environment with lots of exciting tasks and responsibilities.
  • Being part of a company with 32 great colleagues where everyone contributes to our continuous development and growth.
  • Lots of flexibility and responsibility to impact processes, approaches etc.
  • Nice and new office environments in Nordhavn. You of course also have the possibility to work from home on a regular basis, even though we hope you will come to the office regularly, so you are being a truly integrated part of our team.
