Compliance Advisor Due Diligence, Sanctions and Export Control | The Hague

Want to make your mark on our time? Become a Compliance Advisor at TNO in The Hague!

About this position

TNO is an inspiring organization. We connect people and knowledge to create innovations that sustainably strengthen the competitiveness of companies and the well-being of society. TNO is established by law and has both a public and private dimension. Its highly trained researchers work in many different fields (including energy transition, lifestyle, the circular economy, mobility and logistics, defence and security) and with a very diverse palette of international customers and partners. As a result, you will face issues that are often unique and that reach far beyond the borders of the Netherlands. And as Compliance Advisor, you will make social impact by advising on these issues.

What will be your role?

The Compliance Advisor conducts research on clients and partners with the aim of identifying and assessing risks in the areas of integrity, corporate social responsibility and sanction and export control (performing due diligence). Based on this information you write clear recommendations regarding the risks and (possible) mitigating measures so that the business and management can make well-considered choices. You support the business and the Export Control Officer of TNO in the field of export control, military and dual-use classification and trade sanction issues and the associated national and international trade compliance laws and regulations.

The due diligence process within TNO is in full development, a great opportunity to contribute with your knowledge and experience to the further interpretation of this process. In addition, this role offers you the opportunity to eventually grow internally in the field of compliance or sanction and export control.

Your homebase is the TNO head office in The Hague, but for an effective fulfilment of your function you are expected to regularly work at other TNO locations as well. Working from home is also possible.

The team
The Compliance Advisor is part of the Corporate Legal & Compliance (CL&C) department. The aim of this department is to support TNO in managing the legal and compliance risks in its business operations and the set-up of the organization. CL&C also fulfils a signalling and agenda-setting role with regard to compliance and legal policy and frameworks. The department consists of various experts and specialist teams. CL&C is characterized by a high degree of professionalism and by an open, collaborative atmosphere. Importance is attached to enjoying one's work and making an active contribution to the success of TNO.

  • You have an education at HBO / WO level and 3 to 4 years of relevant experience;
  • You have affinity with performing due diligence on third parties and with sanction and export control compliance;

  • You are proactive, organizational sensitive, a pleasant interlocutor and you think in solutions.

What you'll get in return

Challenging and varied work with a real impact. And plenty of opportunities as, at TNO, you are in charge of shaping your career.

TNO offers optional employee benefits, enabling you to tailor your benefits package to match your personal situation. You may also expect:
