You will be responsible to ensure that internal compliance, policies and procedures are implemented and followed correctly in line with internal guidelines and in line with regulatory requirements. You will of course play a key role with the effective interface and communication with the regulators. As a mid-sized firm, the role will provide an interesting scope by requiring to work at a strategic level and also at times in a more hands on way. You will be close to the business decision making as you will work closely with the senior management team.

Key Requirements

Ideally a good knowledge of cross border transactions policies set by the regulator would be a strong advantage.
