  • Build internal capability and develop communications, training materials and supplier integrity programmes that deliver ethical trade commitments across suppliers.
  • Work with Senior Directors to set the direction of focus for non-stock compliance and identify opportunities for ASOS to demonstrate leadership on implementing the UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights.
We are looking for
  • Previous social auditing experience gained from working in a commercial environment, preferably with experience in auditing of logistics, transportation, warehouses.
  • A strong understanding of international labour and human rights standards and their application within complex business-environments, procurement arenas and global value chains.
