Privacy Consultant

INQ Consulting Corporation is a premier consulting firm specializing in all aspects of data compliance, focusing on data governance, privacy, cyber readiness, and emerging technologies.

INQ is seeking an individual who has privacy experience to support our privacy consulting projects and other operational privacy initiatives for our clients. The successful candidate will provide privacy support to our clients and work on a range of projects that span our service lines in Canada and internationally.

You can draft compliant and straightforward policies and procedures that meet client needs.

You are organized, motivated, and self-directed. You love to solve problems and find innovative solutions. You like working with others, but you’re also comfortable working independently.
