As a Workplace Investigator at Facebook, you will be responsible for any matter that may be a potential violation of law or company policy. The responsibility of a Workplace Investigator is to conduct a prompt, thorough, and fair investigation comprising background research, investigative interviews, and de-brief meetings in partnership with Employment Law, Security, HR Business Partners, Internal Audit, and the business.

The key to success in this role will be the ability to work effectively across geographical and cultural boundaries with an ability to discern systemic issues revealed during the investigative process. This requires a high degree of empathy balanced against an ability to provide direct feedback and confront witnesses with difficult information. Investigators must be able to articulate issues to the business in the form of findings and conclusions, so that long-term solutions can be developed and applied. Additionally, Workplace Investigators will work closely with the Learning and Development team to develop and deliver compliance education programs and trainings designed proactively to address workplace issues.
