Open Req Orders

News from the north! The Senate of Canada is looking for a chief audit executive to head up the Senate’s internal audit function. Job is based in Ottawa, Ontario; recruitment firm Odgers Berndtson is in charge of the search. Here’s hoping the Senate there is more functional than the Senate in the United States, although that’s an extremely low bar to surpass 

Cortiva Agriscience is looking for an ethics and compliance officer for its North America region. Job can be based in either Indianapolis or Wilmington, Del. That’s a tough call but I’d pick Delaware.

S&P Global is seeking a vice president for global financial crimes compliance. Job is based in New York City.
