We operate in a genuinely “lean” environment and the demands and learning opportunities are steep and challenging. We are surrounded by teams of capable and driven professionals who value open and clear communication, delivered quickly.
We are looking to hire a Fluke EMEA Compliance and Contract Specialist who would be a part of the Fortive International Legal and Compliance team, with specific contract management and compliance responsibilities for the Fluke EMEA business. Fluke EMEA businesses have around 800 channel partners.
This is a rare opportunity to join a dynamic, international and collaborative team and to experience development and growth first-hand in a truly international business. The International Legal and Compliance team of Fortive is embedded in the business and culture of Fortive’s operating companies and is looking to develop its skills and resources to help the business to continue to proactively serve as trusted partners to its business customers. We are part of the wider Legal and Compliance team of Fortive, but we are sponsored by, accountable to and partner with, business leaders within the international operating companies such as Fluke.
You will work on implementing Fluke’s updated anti-corruption and anti-bribery programme and applying it to Fluke’s channel partners in the Europe Middle-East and African (EMEA) region.

Additionally, as part of the International Legal and Compliance Team, you will have the opportunity to assist the lawyers and paralegals with legal matters relating to channel partners, including contract negotiations, review of non-disclosure agreements and contract amendments. The extent of this legal work will depend on your legal background and your interest in development of legal knowledge.
Assist with third party due diligence, screening and monitoring by inputting data into web-based screening tool, ordering and reviewing third party reports, conducting research utilizing company’s standard procedures, obtaining additional information from channel partners and escalating any red flags to headquarters for joint resolution.
Conduct the Fortive/Fluke compliance programme for channel partners based in EMEA.
