Compliance Officer

Edinburgh
30-35,000 depending on experience

Reporting to Director of Compliance, Governance and Risk

Mercy Corps is a leading global organisation powered by the belief that a better world is possible. In disaster, in hardship, in more than 40 countries around the world, we partner to put bold solutions into action — helping people triumph over adversity and build stronger communities from within. Now, and for the future.

Mercy Corps Europe (MCE) has grown rapidly in terms of volume of activity and complexity. With offices in Edinburgh, London, Geneva and Brussels, we now attract over £90m in income, a portfolio that has doubled in size over the past four years.

We are looking for an experienced legal or compliance professional to join our European team, based in our Edinburgh office. The role will sit within the MCE Compliance, Governance and Risk team, working alongside the US based Compliance and Legal team to ensure that the agency fulfils its responsibility to donors, the NGO community, implementing partners and other stakeholders, and is in compliance with legal and regulatory requirements.

The Compliance Officer plays a vital role in the organisation by:

  • Supporting MCE’s Programmes and Finance teams, based in over 40 countries worldwide, in managing organisational and donor compliance of MCE Programmes;
  • Providing training support to teams in relation to European donor compliance;
  • Communicating closely and working collaboratively with US-based colleagues to ensure that, whenever possible, approaches are globally consistent.

This is a fantastic opportunity for an experienced, ambitious legal or compliance professional who is interested in a career in the NGO sector. You will be joining the fast-growing European entity of a leading global agency, helping people in some of the world's toughest places turn the crises of natural disaster, poverty and conflict into opportunities for progress.

The role will require up to 20% travel. For a full job description, please follow the link to apply.
