The Head of Corporate and Legal Affairs Operations (CLA Ops) will have direct responsibility for the ambitious CLA Ops agenda at Imperial. This is a new area for the business. As such the incumbent will develop new processes and policies in the area (or improve existing processes where these exist).
Imperial wants to accelerate from behind-the-curve in Ops to being a leader. As such, the incumbent must be able to take on projects of varying – and increasing – size and scope. The problems and challenges of these projects may be complex, but the incumbent will develop into a “go to” subject matter expert in all areas of CLA Operations. More than this, they will be able to use external conferences and forums to champion the work that they are leading in this area for Imperial.
Although they will report to the Director of Group Corporate Affairs and CLA Operations, the successful candidate will need to demonstrate that they can work independently to drive a demanding transformation agenda, and to influence functional decision-making at a global level.
Alongside this programme of strategic change, the incumbent will pick up responsibility for many of the existing operational aspects of the Corporate and Legal Affairs function, working in collaboration with the CLA Leadership Team, and with the Chief Legal and Corporate Affairs Officer were appropriate. They will ensure that the CLA function can meet its strategic objectives by overseeing budgets, information management, and, with the assistance of a Projects & Communities Lead, the management of training events, webinars, and capacity and capability development projects for the global CLA Community.
While reporting to the Director of Corporate Affairs and CLA Operations, the holder of this role will need to work very closely with the whole of the CLA Leadership Team (including the Chief Corporate and Legal Affairs Officer) to promote an inclusive, “One CLA” functional culture.
Imperial Brands offer a competitive package of salary, bonus scheme, pension, holidays as well as hybrid work.
