Your new company

Your new company is a major player in the Telecoms sector, with operations across the globe in both the B2B and B2C markets. Given the scale and geographies of their business operations, upcoming Brexit, as well as wider changes around the World, such as in the USA, will have a huge impact on the regulations that affect them, hence the critical nature of this position. This position works in Trade Controls team, which look at Import/Export controls, as well as the sanction around the regulations that govern these.

Your new role

Your overarching responsibility will be to work with the compliance team around you, assisting with Import/Export Trade Controls, and ensuring the business is well placed to deal with these issues when they arise. This role is less focussed on the operations of Import/Export Controls, but on ensuring the business has the necessary policies, controls, and procedures in place to deal with them - and maintaining them as appropriate.

A part of the role is also dealing with Sanctions Compliance and taking the necessary actions around this - you may not be an expert in this already, but a general knowledge of what this entails would be needed.

This is a hands-on role and you will be expected to get involved in carrying out this compliance work, rather than managing others who do it.

What you'll need to succeed

  • Experience working with Import/Export Controls
  • Exposure to Sanctions Compliance would be a huge bonus
  • Prior exposure to compliance or assurance work
  • Ability to get involved, hands-on rather than managing those who do
  • Ability to work in the UK without sponsorship
