Compliance Jobs Report: Nov. 25

Of course we have a Thanksgiving edition of the Compliance Jobs Report! As you digest all that turkey, peruse our updates from TikTok, Twitter, Oxford University Press, Boston Scientific, Superior Energy, and many more. Job leads this week in banking, broadcasting, and medical waste; and lots more news too.

As always, thank you to all the compliance people sending me tips and links to keep this report going. We need your help to make the Report work, so send me some news! If you have a tip to pass along, email me at [email protected] or find me on LinkedIn .

Compliance Jobs News

This week we start at TikTok, which just announced several ethics and compliance hires. First, Katayune Ehsani in Dubai and Liz Bastin in London as senior compliance counsel. Ehsani comes to TikTok from Panasonic Avionics, where she had been a regional counsel; Bastin joins from HSBC, where she had worked in financial crimes compliance.

We also have mildly good news at Twitter: the company has rehired Ella Irwin as its new head of trust and safety. Irwin left Twitter a few weeks ago when new owner Elon Musk started trampling all over the business; now she has rejoined. Irwin succeeds Yoel Roth, one of the many ethics and compliance professionals who bugged out from Twitter as Musk began firing people left and right while trying to shove incomplete products out the door. Vaya con Dios, Ms. Irwin.

Hayley Tozeski has an expanded role at Ericsson. Tozeski, who had already been head of compliance and liaison for the corporate monitor assigned to Ericsson as part of its FCPA settlement a while back, will now also oversee compliance for the company’s new “GF Global Operations” unit. Tozeski describes GFGO as “a new organization at Ericsson tasked with leading our end-to-end digital transformation.”
