Corporate Compliance Analyst

Overview:

Our Corporate Team provides capabilities and services across HR, Technology, Business Management & Change, Finance and Marketing – all of which contribute directly to the firm’s ability to deliver strategic and business goals.  The scale and complexity of the business has increased dramatically in recent years, in the light of which we are now making new investments in the leadership and capability of the Corporate team to ensure our ongoing success for the increased growth and expansion to come.

The creation of the Client Project Compliance Officer role is an important part of the investment we are making in our growing business.

We will be looking to this role to design our processes around, and then deliver all enhanced consultant screening required within the consulting practice.  As a new role, the Officer can take full ownership of the space and strive to create an effective and efficient process to ensure a robust, business suitable means to ensuring compliance with our client contracts and reducing risk.

Our Compliance & Risk Function encompasses ownership of a number of different business areas, of which client project compliance is one.

What will you be doing?
 
  • Ensuring compliance with client contracts where they specify additional background screening requirements before our people can work on their projects
  • Reviewing, redesigning and refreshing our processes; mapping the current enhanced screening process to form a new and efficient procedure for ensuring screening requirements are met and maintained
  • Creating and maintaining a central database of enhanced screening, as required by our various clients
  • Building and maintaining relationships with any 3rd parties which are needed to support the delivery of enhanced screening for Baringa employees and associates.
  • Reviewing compliance with current client contracts and identifying any gaps in our processes with proposals for remediation
  • Advising the corporate legal team on our ability to meet enhanced screening requirements, prior to finalising contracts with our clients, and suggesting amendments where required
  • Liaising with internal client Partners, Consultants and our third party screening provider to ensure timely completion of all consultant screening requirements
  • Ensuring that the relevant staff have the necessary level(s) of awareness around any required consultant screening and understand their accountabilities and responsibilities under the Master Consulting Agreement (MCA)
  • Serving as a partner to the consulting arm of the business, seeking to understand both business and client requirements and balancing these with identified commercial, legal, financial and/or reputational risk
  • Building stakeholder engagement across the firm, raising awareness of the value of compliance where required and building on existing successes
  • Enabling the business by maintaining accurate records of current and required screening to provide timely reporting on requirements to client Partners
  • Supporting the growth of a new business unit within the Corporate team and developing a risk and compliance mind-set within the Firm to further increase our credibility with our clients
  • Escalating issues to the Compliance and Risk Manager where required
  • Other ad-hoc duties and project work as required
What’s in it for both of us?
We recruit individuals at all levels based on merit. If you’ve got the skills and experience we are after we would love to talk to you.

Here are our key requirements for this role:

  • 2+ years’ experience ideally in a corporate risk and compliance role, a background screening role, or similar, with a keen interest in organisational risk and compliance
  • Experience building strong relationships and credibility at all levels inside and outside the organisation
  • A true team player with a collaborative working style
  • Someone capable of exercising sound judgement and tactfulness when managing expectations of stakeholders
  • Confidence upholding policy while communicating clear and pragmatic reasoning particularly where risk may delay the ability to commence a client project

  • Exceptional communication skills; able to inform and influence at all levels ensuring that both the vision and expectations are clearly defined and that relevant stakeholders are fully engaged in plans and progress
