Take the lead on business process compliance

You will join our Corporate Risk and Business Compliance (CRBC) team as the senior manager for Business Process Compliance. Aiming to negotiate and facilitate pragmatic and business-centric solutions, your key responsibility will be to provide assurance to senior leaders on the effectiveness of our internal controls and promote stewardship agenda across the LEGO® organisation. You will be a go-to specialist within your field, as you:

  • Partner with the business to identify and scope areas for review using a prioritised risk-based approach, contributing to the overall governance and assurance across the company

  • Prepare risk-based assurance plans and drive financial, strategic and/or operational assurance reviews that target risk areas in our controls, systems and processes

  • Generate insights and communicate findings to senior management that drive change and improvement across the organisation

  • Prepare formal assurance reports to document control deficiencies and provide practical recommendations to resolve issues, including monitoring remediation status

  • Lead teams of internal professional resources, contractors and/or external co-sourcing partners to complete process reviews, special projects or investigations
