Trade Compliance Associate Analyst

  • 306614

Bell’s Global Trade Compliance department is looking for an innovative, analytical professional with a global mindset to join our team as a Trade Compliance Associate Analyst. Trade compliance laws are vital to our national security and technological and economic advantage. Timely and accurate compliance decisions are critical to Bell’s mission. We can’t ship parts to customers overseas without determining if government approvals are required or if sanctions come into play first. We can’t share engineering specs with foreign suppliers until we determine if we need an export license, or if the export licenses we have authorize us to share the data. We can’t collaborate with innovation partners without understanding what we’re discussing and how it’s controlled.

To determine the compliance requirements, you must be able to read and understand complex legal regulations and apply those regulations to all kinds of business transactions. Details matter and can make all the difference between an export or import that requires government approval, what kind of approval that may be, or a transaction that doesn’t require any special handling. If you enjoy gathering clues and using logic to solve puzzles, that’s really what this job entails. You’ll also need to be able to explain how you arrived at your conclusion for recordkeeping and auditing purposes – so written communication skills are important too.

In the process of gathering facts to determine what’s required, you will work with virtually every function within Bell – engineering, supply chain management, program management, sales, business development, government and commercial contracts, information technology, customer support, security, communications, and legal. And you will work with people at all Bell sites globally.

Primary Responsibilities

  • Apply export/import laws and regulations to determine the appropriate actions;
  • Prepare and administer export and import authorization applications, including approval of export and/or import transactions;
  • Attend and observe program meetings to gather additional facts and set priorities;
  • Review company materials for exportability;
  • Approve foreign travel and foreign visitors;
  • Develop and present global trade related training materials;
  • Conduct risk assessments and assist in audits;
  • Perform sanctioned party list screenings;
  • Prepare reports and maintain records;
  • Continuously improve Bell’s trade compliance program by assisting in the development of policies and procedures, automation projects, etc.;
  • Maintain a positive work environment and actively collaborate with internal and external customers; and
  • Other duties as assigned.


  • Bachelor's degree
  • Demonstrated research, analytical and problem-solving skills
  • Strong attention to detail
  • Excellent organizational skills
  • Ability to understand and apply technical and regulatory concepts
  • Awareness of and interest in changes affecting U.S. export control laws and regulations
  • Superior interpersonal and communication skills
  • Excellent judgment and discretion
  • Desire to work in a collaborative team environment
  • Proficiency with Microsoft Office including Outlook, Word, Excel, and PowerPoint
