  • Keep all stakeholders updated of the review progress through formal and face to face updates
  • Formally document review activity and raise findings within compliance reports and follow a quality assurance process
  • Assist with the creation of risk based Central Compliance Management Information for senior management


To be considered for this job, you will have the following experience:

  • Compliance monitoring & testing experience or other compliance experience gained within internal audit is essential
  • Generalist compliance / regulatory knowledge is essential, preferably within a central compliance function
  • Wholesale banking experience from a major global organisation is essential and asset management experience would be highly desirable
