You Are:
  • Intelligent, Good Communicator, Solution-Oriented, Educated and Qualified…and Down to Earth : You are down to earth, a person who rolls up your sleeves, works well with others and gets things done.

EU related privacy and other legal work is a plus. You are seasoned at negotiating, structuring and drafting contracts, which both protect the company and get the deal done.
