Compliance & Ethics Counsel

Let us describe the challenge we offer

Polestar is the independent electric performance car brand founded by Volvo Cars and Geely Holding. Polestar launched in 2017 the Polestar 1 – a low-volume Electric Performance Hybrid GT. In the middle of 2020, the Polestar 2 arrived in the market as the company’s first full electric, higher volume premium car designed to compete around the Tesla Model 3. In the future, the Polestar 3 electric performance SUV will join the portfolio, as well as the Precept – a design study vehicle released in 2020 that is slated for future production.

We have an exciting opportunity at Polestar for a compliance & ethics counsel who can work within a fast-paced and challenging start-up organization. You will play an important role in the Polestar team supporting the company in its growth and expansion.


What you will do

You will join a small, dynamic, team of in-house lawyers who focus on creative and proactive legal guidance in starting up a new car brand. Together with the Head of Compliance & Ethics, you will form the core team of Compliance & Ethics at Polestar. Key responsibilities will include:

  • Support in developing, implementing and maintaining effective and practical compliance programs in relevant risk areas, initially focused on anti-corruption, trade sanctions, export control, and competition law,
  • Provide legal and compliance support in all kinds of matters under our Code of Conduct, from non-complex to complex nature and with different level of risk.
  • Implement third-party due diligence procedures and conduct due diligence on third parties,
  • Implement trade sanctions screening and perform screening reviews,
  • Develop training processes and conduct compliance trainings,
  • Draft of compliance clauses, legal research, risk assessments, supervision of external legal advisors, and support in investigations and on corporate governance.

You will handle matters independently and with full responsibility. Polestar has a global footprint and you will be interacting and collaborating with a diverse and international team of colleagues in all areas of the business. This is one of the most exciting compliance jobs of today! 


Who you are

You have worked 5-7 years as a lawyer at a law firm, an in-house legal counsel, a regulator, or equivalent, with a focus on compliance and ethics topics such as anti-corruption, trade sanctions or competition law, and you have strong knowledge in setting up and managing comprehensive compliance activities. Experience in compliance management system methodology, or in areas close to compliance, such as enterprise risk management or ESG, is beneficial. You are a great team player with project management skills and a problem-solving and business-oriented mind-set. You are able to translate legal advice into useful business actions. As part of an international business you are expected to be fluent in English in both written and oral communication.


You are energized by working at a fast pace and by taking on all types of challenges – big and small – in a truly dynamic environment. Establishing a new car brand makes for an exciting future that will require a lot of flexibility and creative thinking while keeping a strong integrity and sense of accountability. You do not wait for instructions; you act proactively, with focus on the right thing and getting the job done. You are not the type who relies on consultants doing the job for you.

This role will be part of the Polestar global legal team and be located at the Polestar Headquarter in Gothenburg, Sweden.


Is this you? If you are interested in joining the Polestar family, don't wait with submitting your application. We apply a continuous selection process and the job post will be open until the position is filled.
