- In house compliance specialist
Our client is a major North East business with significant international operations, and an experienced and established in house legal team. Based in very pleasant Newcastle offices, it is a business with a good ethos and known as an attractive employer
The significant growth of the business in recent time has created an increased focus on compliance matters, especially given expansion into new territories. For that reason they are looking to recruit an experienced individual with a background in compliance across a wide range of sectors.
At the outset you will need to undertake an initial review of compliance matters across the business (essentially a gap analysis), and then suggest a plan of action to set up relevant policies and procedures. The initial focus will be on general compliance such as anti bribery, competition law, some GDPR, possibly product compliance. You would then need to advise the business on risk areas the potential plan for addressing these.
You will ideally have experience in the more traditional' 'corporate compliance' field. You background may be legal, but that is by no means essential. You'll need to take a sensible commercial view with a risk based approach, and have strong communication skills to work on the project with many of the senior management team. This project is initially scheduled to last at least 6 months, but given the nature of the project it is highly likely to need a permanent appointee after that time period.
