After stints as a lawyer in the UK and Germany before moving to Australia, Alison Clegg found a home in the oil and gas sector and then in ethics and compliance. Here, she details the foremost considerations for good compliance officers in the new normal.
On this episode of The Corporate Counsel Show, host Jerome Doraisamy is joined by Shell ethics and compliance manager Alison Clegg to discuss what drew her to the oil and gas sector, why ethics and compliance is such a critical cog in the machine of global companies like Shell, how and why she moved away from legal practice and finding positivity in her new vocational pathway.
Ms Clegg also delves into what the day to day
of a compliance officer looks like, the need to encourage best practice rather than scare colleagues into it, the non-negotiables for someone in her position, the inextricable place of workplace culture in her role and duties, how compliance considerations are trickier in a post-pandemic world given scattered workforces, and whether more lawyers should consider such a pathway.
