  • Provide bank-wide guidance, challenge, and support for all matters relating to the requirements of the Fraud Act, relevant FCA rules (SYSC), and industry guidance and best practice, in order to protect the Bank from all fraud related losses and to ensure the Bank conducts its activities in accordance with regulatory expectations.
  • Work collaboratively with key stakeholders throughout the Bank to ensure there are appropriate controls to identify, manage and remediate internal fraud risks and issues.
  • Provide support for financial crime systems and analytics activities, as directed by the Systems & Analytics Oversight Manager, including creation of the monthly MI, reporting, and analytics for governance committees and forums.
  • Provide technical input and support for the strategic development of the Bank's anti-fraud systems (e.g. Hunter, CIFAS), to ensure that alert outputs are optimized.

What we expect from you!

  • In depth subject matter expertise gained through several years of working in an anti-financial crime (particularly fraud) business area, within a financial institution.
  • Knowledge and understanding of the three lines of defence risk management framework model.
  • Experienced in writing and maintaining policies and procedures, and an ability to effectively communicate the requirements to appropriate stakeholders.
  • Strong organisational skills.
  • Self-motivated with good attention to detail.
  • Commercial awareness with good judgement and decision-making skills.
