About the Company

The USOPC is looking for an exceptional candidate to join its Ethics & Compliance team in the position of Compliance Investigator. The Ethics & Compliance team is responsible for ensuring that the organizations recognized by the USOPC as National Governing Bodies (NGBs) meet their membership obligations as set forth in the Ted Stevens Olympic and Amateur Sports Act, USOPC Bylaws, and other USOPC policies (collectively the Requirements) and for investigating and resolving other compliance matters. The Ethics & Compliance team is also responsible for ensuring the USOPC complies with its own obligations in the Requirements and promotes a culture where USOPC team members feel they can report misconduct or other concerns without fear of retaliation. The team accomplishes this goal by 1) diligently tracking and responding to reports of potential USOPC and NGB non-compliance; 2) initiating and managing investigations into alleged or suspected non-compliance; 3) supporting internal USOPC efforts to organize resources to aid NGBs in meeting their compliance obligations; and 4) investigating alleged USOPC non-compliance.

The Compliance Investigator reports to the Senior Director, Compliance Investigations & Ethics (Sr. Director) and is responsible for: 1) conducting and managing investigations initiated by the Compliance team; 2) implementing established compliance processes and procedures; 3) supporting the Sr. Director in documenting, monitoring, and prosecuting NGB non-compliance matters; and 4) resolving USOPC compliance matters.

This position will work across the USOPC to coordinate investigations and develop and maintain consistent recordkeeping and reporting processes. Significant internal stakeholders for this position include Legal, Audit, Security & Athlete Safety, NGB Services, and the Athlete Ombuds Office.
