Senior Associate (Data Privacy and Protection) – Technology Consulting – EY Mauritius


At EY, you’ll have the chance to build a career as unique as you are, with the global scale, support, inclusive culture and technology to become the best version of you. And we’re counting on your unique voice and perspective to help EY become even better, too. Join us and build an exceptional experience for yourself, and a better working world for all.

Our structured career framework means you’ll continue to develop, whatever level you’re at. And with a network stretching around the globe, you’ll gain valuable insight across industries and geographies.


The opportunity

Technology has fundamentally transformed the notion of privacy — what it means to affected stakeholders (individuals, regulators, organizations) and how each party can remain accountable in a world that technology has turned on its head. Today’s privacy regulations are evolving all around the world and in the region with the increasing data protection and privacy requirements to protect personal data.


Our Data Protection and Privacy Consulting Services are meant to assist organizations in handling these new regulations, trends and risks, by ensuring a regulatory compliant flow of personal data, supporting their business. Being a part of the team, you will be involved in the following activities:


Your key responsibilities

  • Designing and implementing data protection and privacy programs at our clients supporting their business
  • Evaluating the data protection and privacy practices of our clients
  • Conducting Privacy Impact Assessments
  • Supporting and guiding our clients in adhering to the complex web of relevant national and international regulations
  • Deploying tools to support different aspects of data protection and privacy
  • Ensuring a harmonized approach towards data protection and privacy by bringing together our client’s stakeholders (e.g., legal, compliance, risk, human resources, security functions)
  • Assisting clients in privacy related incident response activities
  • Provide other related services pertaining to data protection and privacy


Skills and attributes for success


  • Ability to efficiently understand client organizations and their business model and to tailor relevant processes to privacy requirements
  • Communicate effectively with different stakeholders (e.g., business, legal, IT, security…) about data protection and privacy matters
  • Have an analytical mindset, strive for quality and are able to work in a result-oriented environment


To qualify for the role you must have


  • A recognized university degree in law, business, information technology, or other relevant discipline with 2-3 years of working experiences, preferably in the consulting space or industry
  • Prior experience with relevant data protection and privacy laws, regulations, industry standards and frameworks
  • Possession of relevant qualifications such as CIPM, CIPT, CIPP/E, CISM and/or CISSP as well as involvement in industry related organizations (e.g. IAPP, ISACA, (ISC)²) will be an advantage
  • Strong written and verbal communication skills and presentation skills


Ideally, you’ll also have


  • Prior experience as part of a data protection team/function/compliance officer/auditor


What we look for


Highly motivated individuals with excellent problem-solving skills and the ability to prioritize shifting workloads in a rapidly changing industry. An effective communicator, you’ll be a confident team player that collaborates with people from various teams while looking to develop your career in a dynamic organization.


What we offer
