Campaign Against Antisemitism (CAA) is the UK’s leading organisation fighting antisemitism nationwide and aims to be up-to-date and compliant with all Government-issued documentation pertaining to regulation of charities, employers and data governance. We are seeking a volunteer Compliance Officer to assist our Compliance Unit in ensuring that we continue to remain compliant with all available guidance in this area.
As a Compliance Officer, you will work closely with our Compliance Unit led by our Head of Compliance, reviewing regulatory requirements and the processes and policies that we rely upon to comply with our duties as a charity, employer and processor of personal identifiable information.
As a volunteer Compliance Officer you will:
- Maintain an awareness of Government-issued guidelines pertaining to data governance and the operations of charities and employers;
- Produce documents and materials to highlight compliance issues as they relate to CAA and our expanding operations;
- Work closely with the Compliance Unit, Systems Unit, General Counsel, and Programme Manager to improve processes, policies and systems across the charity; and
- Work with staff and volunteers to provide advice and guidance on compliance-related issues that may arise.
Some experience in a relevant area of compliance, such as charity governance or information governance, is essential to this role. You will also receive guidance, mentorship and training from members of the Compliance Unit. The successful candidate will be highly organised, meticulous and precise, and comfortable working with modern technology such as cloud-based apps.
Research and awareness: As a Compliance Officer you will become increasingly familiar with matters relating to compliance as they impact CAA and its operations. You will be referred to for your opinion on how the organisation should adapt in accordance with regulatory guidance such as that issued by the Charity Commission.
Document production: You will assist in devising materials and processes informing colleagues from across the organisation as to how they can operate in compliance with various regulations. You will be in weekly contact with colleagues to maintain an awareness of the ongoing and expanding operations of CAA to ensure that any compliance documentation is kept updated.
Liaise with the Compliance Unit: You will maintain a close relationship with the other members of the Compliance Unit to ensure that we meet regulatory requirements, taking part in regular meetings with the Compliance Unit and the charity’s leadership, planning and ensuring attainment of compliance goals.
Working with staff and volunteers: You will work closely with staff and volunteers from various teams across CAA, ensuring that all are kept informed as to requirements for regulatory compliance, inspiring attention to detail and an awareness of compliance-related issues.
Your work will require you to prioritise effectively, think analytically and write and communicate persuasively and clearly. You will be a fast learner, who can rapidly develop practical solutions and operate with total discretion. You will have excellent interpersonal skills and be comfortable working as part of a growing team.
