JCW are currently being retained to identify a Head Compliance on behalf of a mid-sized banking organisation with an international presence in the corporate banking and lending space. Managing a relatively sizeable team and reporting directly into the bank’s CEO, the eventual role holder will be ultimately responsible for all regulatory compliance efforts across the business, and will be FSA registered accordingly.
Candidates must possess extensive regulatory compliance and financial crime experience developed in a relevant financial environment. Leadership is a key aspect of this position – the ability and experience of managing a team of over 6 people within a regulatory environment is key. The eventual role holder will be responsible for ensuring compliance in the UK and the various other international markets in which the bank trades, and will be responsible for regular dialogue with the FCA and PRA as necessary. Candidates should have experience in the prevention of money laundering, fraud and terrorist financing, and will be responsible for oversight of the bank’s transaction due diligence process and data protection efforts.
The eventual role holder will spend a considerable amount of time working with senior stakeholders across this banking organisation, and as such will need to demonstrate that he or she has previously worked in positions that have required regular contact with senior individuals. Previous registration as CF10, CF11 is advantageous, but not essential. The organisation has a significant international presence, preference is for individuals who have some degree of international exposure. Applicants must have had some degree of experience in a wholesale/corporate lending environment.
