Chief compliance officer jobs

The chief compliance officer, unlike bank compliance offers or other compliance officer jobs, works directly under the CEO of a company and the Board of Trustees' Corporate Compliance Committee. He studies the companies efforts to meet laws and regulations and submits reports detailing suggestions on compliance related matters to the CEO or management teams.

Unlike other compliance officers, chief compliance officers have the authority to take a desired action in order to carry out their compliance programme effectively; they don't necessarily need to go-ahead from a CEO, particularly if the company is at risk of breaking significant compliance laws.

Chief compliance officer requirements

For chief compliance officer jobs a Bachelor's degree is required (normally in a field of law) but a Master's degree is an advantage. A minimum of five to ten years experience is required, either as chief compliance officer or a similar position. However, the length of experience you need will depend entirely on the company looking for a chief compliance officer.
