I have an exciting opportunity working for a big name in their compliance team. The head of compliance, who this role reports into, is someone who is well known for nurturing talented individuals and would be a great person to learn from.

This would be an excellent opportunity for someone working at the  FCA or at a consumer credit, retail banking institution.

The Compliance Adviser role is pivotal in ensuring the organisation’s adherence to regulatory standards and frameworks, playing a crucial part in advising management on PRA/FCA regulations alongside other pertinent European and Global regulatory bodies. This position carries the responsibility of conducting specialized regulatory project work and addressing technical issues that arise within the business environment.

At its core, the role involves maintaining, developing, and enhancing the framework for the Senior Managers & Certification Regime, a critical aspect of regulatory compliance within the financial sector. Additionally, the Adviser is tasked with the ongoing assessment of Regulatory Risks, delivering Compliance Monitoring Reviews, and staying abreast of any changes or updates in regulatory requirements.

The Adviser’s profile necessitates a solid foundation of 3 to 5 years’ experience within a regulatory or compliance environment, coupled with a comprehensive understanding of the UK regulatory framework, including Compliance Monitoring & Testing, Senior Managers Regime, and Conduct Rules. Educational requirements include at least a degree level qualification, and actively pursuing or holding industry-recognized professional certifications is highly desirable.

Reporting directly to the Head of Compliance, the Adviser acts as a deputy in their absence, providing coverage for technical compliance matters and offering support to other team members during periods of leave. The principal accountabilities of the role encompass a wide array of tasks, ranging from monitoring and assessing the impact of proposed regulatory changes to developing and maintaining policies and procedures to ensure compliance with banking, consumer credit, deposit-taking, and insurance mediation regulations on a pan-European basis.

The Adviser plays a pivotal role in identifying Compliance Risks, reviewing and approving product plans, participating in cross-functional teams to address regulatory compliance issues in strategic initiatives and business projects, and managing various regulatory applications and submissions as required by the business.

Key competencies required for success in this role include a deep understanding of regulatory frameworks, compliance, banking, data protection, money laundering, and financial crime policies. Additionally, strong communication skills, both oral and written, are essential for effectively liaising with stakeholders across the organization and external regulatory bodies. The ability to manage competing priorities, resolve conflicts, and develop meaningful business relationships is also crucial.

Salary on offer is £60,000 – £75,000 and offers hybrid working.

The offices are in Essex and you will be expected in 3 days a week.
