You are going to be managing a small team of people who perhaps only part time responsibility for export control, this could mean that you will have to influence people who don't have this as a primary part of the role. That's definitely going to take some character! So you will undoubtedly be an expert influencer as well as a trade compliance whiz. But your influence doesn't end internally, oh no, that would be far too straight forward! You will be interfacing with the industries relevant trade body in Europe, as well as with 3rd party representatives and providers of trade compliance services, aaaaaaand the usual interactions with the relevant customs representatives in a variety of locations across Europe, Asia, the US and even Israel. This may require some travel on your part as you can imagine! My client has also expressed that knowledge of SAP could be beneficial, but that would definitely fall into the 'bonus' category, rather than a requirement.

The company you will be joining are a bit of a tech giant, with a global presence (you probably figured that bit out already) and take pride in the fact they are helping to change the world with what they do.

Their products are inherently complex, and this only adds to the regulatory challenges they face. As the Trade Compliance Manager EMEA, you're going to make of this feel very easy for them indeed.
