We’re now looking for a Chief Compliance Officer to drive this important area throughout the business and across our divisions.
In this position, you lead our international team of compliance officers within SMS, and together you further develop our ethical culture by creating awareness and actively promote the importance of compliance throughout the organization. You follow up and work with compliance performance management across our divisions, taking responsibility for the four Sandvik compliance programs – Data Privacy, Competition Law, Trade Compliance and Anti-Bribery & Corruption. You cooperate with designated contact persons within the divisions, as well as our group function and other business areas.
