Head of Governance – International Remit

BWW are working exclusively with one of the world’s most recognisable family owned children’s toy manufacturers.

Working directly alongside the founder and CEO (a household name and recognisable public figure), this role will oversee the governance practices and policy throughout the annual cycle before a very busy period.

This is a newly created role as the organisation looks to rejuvenate their structure and processes after a long period without a governance function. You will have a key role to play in the over-arching strategy plan especially pertaining to delivery planning and staff structure; acting as secretary to several committees including but not limited to: the Reindeer Motivation Committee, the Mistletoe and Wine Committee and the Wrapping Paper Committee.

As a trusted advisor to the Board, you will ensure that best practice is upheld across the organisation. This role will also oversee the list of licensees to the CEO’s image including global companies such as Coca-Cola plus management of subsidiary Grottos worldwide. Another exciting part of the remit is the responsibility of managing the Data Protection of global Naughty and Nice lists. This role will help steer the organisation through the current period of uncertainty, continuing to allow the business to deliver to multiple nations worldwide in a very short period bypassing trade tariffs through innovative airborne delivery systems. Ideally, you will be qualified by the North Pole Institute of Company Secretaries and Administrators and have strong governance experience from an Easter Egg Hiding Society or a Fairy listed Tooth Holdings company. 

Based in Lapland, some strong understanding of Elf culture would be advantageous in order to foster strong relationships with key local stakeholders. There may be some flexible working alongside a strong benefits package including hot cocoa on tap, subsidised daily yule logs and a company sleigh.

Relocation package on offer.
