The complexity of multiple markets, laws and regulations is an everyday challenge for us, and evaluating and managing risks and balancing them against potential profits requires accuracy and strong integrity. Within Sandvik, we consider compliance extremely important, and actively work to secure that we do business in a compliant manner throughout the entire Sandvik organization – always!

We are now looking for a Head of Compliance to continue developing and driving this important area by designing and leading the regulatory compliance programs across the Sandvik Group, together with the compliance teams in our business areas. You are one of our key Sandvik resources, and together, we set out to further develop our ethical culture by creating awareness and actively promote the importance of compliance throughout the entire organization. Active benchmarking and best practice sharing, staying on top of regulatory trends, as well as further developing oversight are also important.

Let’s talk about your mission
In this position, you lead our work with regard to compliance, including our four compliance programs that are currently setup within the Sandvik Group - Data Privacy, Competition Law, Trade Compliance and Anti-Bribery & Corruption - and you work closely with the team that manages our whistleblowing process. Other important items on your agenda are developing policies, executing plans, setting ways of working and digital tools to ensure a relevant and efficient toolbox for driving success in this area. You may also be the expert competency (Subject Matter Expert) for one or more of four programs. The Head of Compliance role has grown with the regulatory developments and the Sandvik organization over the years, and we expect this to continue to evolve over time.

You take ownership of the newly developed compliance tool, the Compliance House, which is used by our operations to manage compliance risks and to provide insights into risk levels and compliance maturity in Sandvik’s entities. Additionally, you chair the Compliance Functional Council that sets the direction and strategy for the four Compliance programs and the Compliance function. You keep close interactions with the Audit Committee as you report on compliance matters as well as the assurance functions Governance, Risk Management, Internal Audit and Internal Controls. In all of your work, you rely on strong networks and great collaborations, and you empower people to find efficient solutions, look at new perspectives and share best practices.

As Head of Compliance, you report to the Executive Vice President and General Counsel of Sandvik Group and you are a valued member of our Group Legal Management team. The location for this position is preferably Stockholm, but as this is a global role, other locations can be discussed. Some travel will be required.

Your background and character
You will likely have a law degree (or an equivalent education in business or finance) and extensive experience from working at an inhouse legal/compliance organization of an international corporation, with a regulatory body and/or a reputable law firm on compliance matters. Broad knowledge in the field of compliance, anti-corruption, trade, data privacy and competition law is required, with expert knowledge in one or more areas preferred. Your understanding of the practical aspects of building and sustaining a well embedded compliance program in the manufacturing industry is a merit. With a strategic outlook and an independent working style, you find your way in our decentralized environment. As we act in a global setting, you must be fluent in English, while skills in other languages are beneficial.

We truly admire your passion for compliance and your visionary thinking. You know how to translate your knowledge and experience into business advantages, and you are skilled at balancing small details with the bigger picture. With an open mind and a collaborative approach, you make things happen and deliver result. To interact in diverse environments excites you, and you use your good communication skills to influence and bring people on board.
