Reporting to the Chief Compliance Officer, our client is looking for a Compliance Lead who can drive a ‘Culture of Integrity’ for the European and Canadian markets. This will be both a hands-on role and a highly important strategic position, where you will work as direct Compliance Partner for Canada whilst also ensuring the implementation of the Global Compliance Programme in Europe.

You will lead Canada and European Compliance Committees and oversee other local Committees. Working with Programme Design and Programme Effectiveness leads, you will drive a Culture of Integrity within the business and for third party partners. Finally, this role will involve the line management of 4 direct reports.


The ideal candidate must have experience of leading Compliance Programmes for a highly regulated business. This will preferably be in Pharmaceuticals, but possibly the Scientific, Medical, Oil & Gas or Mining sectors. You will have extensive knowledge of the global regulatory landscape, particular the US and the UK. You will have extensive knowledge of compliance risk areas such as healthcare compliance, anti-bribery and corruption, trade sanctions and data privacy. You will be a highly effective communicator and must have perfect written and oral English language skills.
