The compliance manager’s role is to ensure that the business, its employees and its projects comply with all relevant regulations and specifications, as well as any ethical policies the company may have laid down.
Responsibilities can cover a wide range of areas, including:
The compliance manager will work closely with teams across the business to make sure each member is aware of his or her role in compliance.
This will involve detailed research, documentation, risk assessments, training programmes and liaison with external bodies. There is a continual process of planning, implementation, inspections and communication with others.
This is a very important role: failure to meet necessary standards – whether legal or technical – could prove costly for the business, both financially and in terms of reputation.
Compliance Managers usually work standard office hours, Monday to Friday, but there may be times where overtime will be needed, particularly in more senior roles.
Salaries typically depend on location, employer and level of responsibility.
