​Our Client

Our client, a fast growing payments fintech, is looking for a Financial Crime Manager to support the Head of Compliance in all financial crime matters. The aim is to at least double in size in the next year in terms of the wider firm as well as the compliance function, meaning it is a truly exciting time to join.

The successful candidat will be given broad exposure, as well as working directly with the Head of Compliance to shape and build out the compliance function. The role will be fully remote for the foreseeable, shifting towards a hybrid working model with a London office opening mid-late 2022.

Main Duties

Key responsibilities for this position will include, but are not limited to:

  • Design, develop and implement an effective AML transaction monitoring programme

  • Lead the AML transaction monitoring programme, including alert generation, case investigation and SAR filing

  • Conduct KYC transaction queries and onboarding for new clients

  • Review/identify suspicious transactional activities and report and escalate to the relevant departments

  • Perform due diligence (EDD/CDD)

  • Help to establish and maintain best practices, policies and procedures and keep abreast of regulatory developments

  • Liaising with compliance/product and operations teams

  • Developing a Financial Crime Officer, with the desire to expand the team further

Your Profile

  • 5+ years of financial crime experience within payments/retail banking/fintech

  • Relevant experience in AML transaction monitoring

  • Knowledge of UK and European AML legislation and relevant regulations

  • Strong interpersonal and communication skills

  • Desire and ability to work in a fast-paced and challenging environment

Salary: £70,000 - £90,000 (flexible, depending on experience) + unlimited hoilday
