This unique opportunity will allow the holder of the position to shape the future of the business by establishing, leading and governing major business and culture change. This high profile position will require a professional approach and the ideal candidate must possess the appropriate skills to develop a large import and customs team and framework. If you are a talented multi-tasker with the drive to deliver immediate and creative solution design in a challenging and extremely fast paced environment, this might be the ideal role for you.
Customs and Excise is a key function for a wide range of multinationals across the UK. At Lidl, we are committed to ensuring that our team can deliver a high quality operation and have preparations in place to execute all necessary customs formalities. As part of the senior leadership team within Customs and Import, in this role you will be responsible for developing and overseeing Lidl's UK customs and excise strategy, including preparing and advising the business of any updates to UK import (and possibly export) regulations to ensure the business remains up to date with any changes that may occur.
You will develop, co-ordinate and oversee effective implementation and operation of international trade controls and processes. The ideal candidate will have experience in regulatory compliance in relation to business activities from non-EU countries. You will address trade compliance issues to mitigate import (as well as potential export) compliance risks and work closely with all stakeholders to ensure non-UK entities follow all the international and national regulations for the movement of goods.
This is an exciting opportunity to play a leading part in our strategy across our wider business network while making sure we are prepared for the challenges ahead.
