Full Time


Nashua, New Hampshire, United States

Job Description This new position will serve as a key member of the Ethics and Business Conduct function at the Electronic Systems Sector of BAE Systems Inc., and will interact with employees at a range of levels within the sector. This is a role where you can grow, well suited for an individual with solid, directly applicable business and education/learning experiences who wants to leap forward in the ethics and compliance world.

This role will support the Ethics Office in the function's two primary objectives: a) to prevent and detect misconduct, and b) to promote an organizational culture that encourages ethical conduct and a commitment to compliance with the law. In large measure, this role will undertake those ethics function activities related to "detection," while supporting Ethics staff who undertake those functional activities related to "prevention."

This role will:

  • execute our automated conflict of interest disclosure and mitigation process
  • conduct, guide and support investigations into allegations of misconduct
  • provide guidance to employees seeking advice on policies (primarily our Code of Conduct, the Gift and Hospitality policy, the Conflict of Interest policy)
  • execute and expand upon our anti-corruption initiatives, including our gift and hospitality disclosure process
  • assist in the development of Ethics communications, training, and targeted interventions.
Location: Within 50 miles of Nashua, NH (greatly preferred). Would consider Ft. Wayne, IN; Austin, TX or remote.

Because this role involves a combination of collaborative/in-person and independent work, it will take the form of a hybrid work format, with time split between working onsite and remotely.
