  • 1.  Job Titles for Compliance

    Hi there,

    I'm trying to find some resources to review job titles for compliance roles, particularly for non-profits. Does anyone have any thoughts?

    Thank you!

    I have heard many titles.  Mine is Compliance Officer and HIPAA Privacy Officer.  I have heard VP - Compliance, Chief Compliance Officer, Chief Privacy Officer.  I am sure there many others.

    You could look at the HCCA Members community list and get more ideas.

    Hi Carolyn,

    I work for a nonprofit as well, and we use the titles of Compliance Director and Compliance Manager (currently vacant).  We have some specialty roles over areas such as food service, and other specific areas of compliance.  We formally appointed the Compliance Director role (me) as the Compliance Officer. Lots of good examples of Compliance Job Descriptions online.  I usually look at job boards for ideas if I need to create a new role.  Is the compliance roles you are looking for guidance on Corporate Compliance or are they more specific meeting a certain requirement such as privacy or other regulatory requirement?

    Hi Jennifer,


    Thanks for your reply.


    In this case, it's a change in my title to more accurately reflect the work that I actually do. While I do oversee the internal policies, etc., I'm also the HIPAA Privacy Officer. I've also got a few other subtitles. We've got less than 100 employees right now but we're adding at a fast clip so it looks like we could be in the low 90s in the next month or two.

    Hi Carolyn!
    Since I arrived here 2 years ago we have had a number of iterations due to various corporate changes. My supervisor is the Chief Compliance Officer and General Counsel (she is an attorney). I am the VP of Compliance.  The Director of Compliance and Performance Improvement (compliance, risk and PQI are all in our department) reports to me.  There are 3 additional full-time positions.  Recently we made these all the same; Compliance and Quality Analysts. I am happy to forward job descriptions to you directly if you would like.Good luck!
