Position: Business Conduct Attorney (Compliance Director Brazil)

Location: São Paulo / Brazil

We are currently seeking an experienced and enthusiastic individual to join our team in Brazil, leading the Business Conduct program in Brazil. This role will best be served by someone with experience working as an attorney in the area of compliance, anti-bribery and anti-corruption within the pharmaceutical industry, with an understanding of the promotional laws and regulations and the industry codes applicable in Brazil.

This individual will work under the supervision of the Commercial Legal team in California, and have responsibility for ensuring appropriate and compliant interactions with healthcare professionals, government officials and other third parties by the Brazil organization. The individual will serve as a strategic partner to the business in close collaboration with the Brazil General Manager, Legal Counsel and cross functional groups.

This position is based in Sao Paulo, Brazil. Some travel in Latin America and to the global headquarters in California is required.

  • The successful candidate will be a highly motivated self-starter and will be given increasing responsibility. The ability to competently carry-out and follow through on directives and to learn quickly is expected.
