Who are we looking for: -

A background in functions as broad as tax, HR, audit or law will likely be most applicable and provide the skills and experience required for this role.  Maybe you have held HR generalist roles or worked in internal audit, or you are a disillusioned lawyer.  The key thing is an interest in interpreting legal and regulatory requirements in employment and data protection regs and the ER side of HR and its application across the globe. 

You’ll be effective and experienced in cross functional collaboration, virtual team working and leveraging colleague support is key to the compliance function’s success.  You’ll need to be a relationship builder, influencer, decision maker, sounding board and enforcer.

We need someone who enjoys interpreting sometimes complex information to be able to apply to the workplace in pragmatic and commercial fashion.

As the ideal candidate, you will have: -

A basic understanding of employment law in the UK, Europe or Americas would be good.  Even without, a genuine interest in gaining this knowledge will be a plus point.

Most important is having an analytical mind, attention to detail and ability to problem solve…   Enjoy problem solving!  And a sense of humour.  Be able to cope with ever changing priorities, meet deadlines and deal with high volume workload while delivering high quality, accurate work. 

Being great at Excel will make up for your manager’s deficiencies. 

What’s in it for you?
