What you'll do

This is a varied role which will provide you with exposure to all areas of the business:

  • You’ll be a first point of contact across the business for compliance issues, including financial promotions, complaints, regulatory change and client money and assets.
  • You’ll perform compliance monitoring activities across the business. This will mean you need to develop a commercial understanding of each team and communicate effectively with people in other business functions.
  • You’ll work with the Compliance team to provide sound regulatory advice across the business.
  • You’ll also work with our Investment and Marketing teams on reviewing, and advising on new and existing financial promotions.
  • You’ll work with the Compliance Director on enhancing our framework, policies and processes in relation to financial promotions to ensure compliance as the business scales.
  • You’ll support the Senior Compliance Manager in delivering regulatory and compliance training across the business that will focus on various teams, products and regulations. You will take the findings from your compliance monitoring activities to determine training needs.
  • You’ll support the Compliance Director in maintaining our relationship with the regulators by completing FCA reporting, and keeping up with regulatory updates.


Who we’re looking for 

For this entry-level role you may have had experience within a financial services business, a compliance role or simply a passion to get into it. We’re looking for:

  • A self-starter and a problem-solver - we want you to be able to use your initiative to improve inefficiencies in the compliance function and collaborate with teams across the business.
  • Some knowledge and understanding of FCA requirements, and some experience of working in a professional environment.
  • Someone with a genuine interest in the industry and with an enthusiasm for the changing landscape of alternative finance and how that is regulated.
  • Someone who is passionate about starting a career in Regulatory Compliance.
  • Excellent analytical skills and comfortable working with numbers, you’re not afraid of spreadsheets.
  • Fluent in English with excellent writing and communication skills.
  • Adaptive to a fast-paced and dynamic environment, you will be able to manage your own time, and work on a number of projects and tasks at a time.
