Data Protection Lab Consultant

Join us as a Data Protection Lab Consultant

Data Protection Lab

Ask Q wants to change the legal business. We are the legal wing(wo)man that (international) companies have been looking for. At Ask Q, as a Junior Contracts Lab Consultant you will receive the same training as within a law firm but without all the bar obligations. On top of that you will have the opportunity to work for different companies, often simultaneously.

Ask Q serves as an extension of several top companies' legal teams. We want to change the legal business, also for our employees: we offer complete transparency about financials, about strategy and planning, we let our consultants take ownership over clients and projects and we understand the importance of a good balance between work and life. We are passionate about what we do, but we know there’s more to life than work.

Your role

As a Data Protection Lab Consultant, you will be a part of the Data Protection Lab. Our Data Protection Lab aims to offer hands-on solutions for our customer’s day-to-day data protection encounters and not-so-everyday projects alike. Unlike more traditional law firms, we do not just offer data protection advice from a distance. We like to take ownership of the client’s problem and aim for easy-to-implement solutions that unburden the client by actually diving into the clients’ systems and connecting legal, IT and the business. We do the client’s homework.


Your Ask Q week will include:


  • Integrating your data protection know-how in the client’s day-to-day operations (contract drafting, policy reviews, etc.);
    taking care of GDPR compliance in exciting projects (e.g. app development) or assisting new companies to achieve data protection compliance from scratch;
  • helping clients to maximize data usage and valorization, while minimizing liability risks;
    proactively communicating with and advising the client’s international business teams on all kinds of data protection matters, either as their external DPO or as a dedicated legal counsel;
  • providing data protection awareness training or crash courses that are tailored to the client’s business;

  • discussing new data protection evolutions and proposing pragmatic solutions with your Ask Q colleagues in an open atmosphere;
    supplementing your legal skills with IT know-how by working together with non-legal profiles, such as IT specialists or ethical hackers;
  • managing and coaching our junior legal consultants;
  • getting continuous feedback as well as various learning and development opportunities, to grow fast as a legal professional. You will work with talented colleagues who will help you build a strong legal background enabling you to work for large international companies.
