The Role!

Your day-to-day responsibilities will include:

  • Planning and execution of compliance and regulatory reviews, ensuring adherence to procedures and follow up action where required
  • Working collaboratively across all teams to provide solutions to failings and embed practical procedures to mitigate risk
  • Supporting the Risk & Compliance team with firmwide risk framework and assessment
  • Supporting the Risk & Compliance team with external regulatory reviews
  • Providing assistance with GDPR requirements. This will include dealing with breaches, process mapping, the updating of any policies and procedures and training as well as audits in this area
  • Assisting with compliance of anti-money laundering regulations by monitoring, responding to employee queries, and providing any necessary training and support
  • Supporting in updating standard letters and contracts
  • Working on ad hoc projects throughout the year to improve the compliance function

What we are looking for…

To be considered for the role, you will have: 

  • Experience of working within an accountancy firm or financial services environment
  • Accounting or finance qualification at AAT level or above
  • Excellent communication and interpersonal skills that enable you to build relationships with a wide range of stakeholders
  • Strong organisation skills
  • The ability to work well under pressure and to respond to issues quickly and calmly
  • A proactive approach to work with strong prioritisation skills

This is a part time role (20 hours) with scope for increase over the next few years.

Please contact Caroline Smale; Risk and Compliance Partner if you would like to discuss this opportunity further.

We welcome applicants who would like the flexibility in their working arrangements, including working from home or part time working, which may help to accommodate parent or carer responsibilities, further studies and activities outside of work.

We are committed to welcoming new people into an inclusive working environment, where everyone is given equal opportunity to reach their full potential. We support a culture where people are valued and treated fairly with respect and differences are understood and celebrated. 

The more varied our workforce, the broader the expertise within our business. The broader our expertise, the greater our chances of innovation and success. That's why we're committed to equality of opportunity, diversity and inclusion at every level.
