  • Assist with the preparation of policies and procedures in relation to the various compliance responsibilities.
  • Assist in providing oversight of each functional unit’s adherence to relevant internal Policies and Procedures.
  • Supervise transaction monitoring to identify any potential violation of the anti-money laundering or economic sanctions laws and regulations.

What you will need to succeed:

  • 5+ years previous experience in Anti-Money Laundering compliance and/or transaction monitoring.

  • Exposure to risk management policies and processes as it relates to the business application of internal and external risk factors (operational, legal, reputation, market) impacting a business or corporate foreign exchange operation.

What will make you stand out:

  • The ability to work with others including building internal and external relationships
  • Strong interpersonal, organizational and communication skills.
  • Strong understanding of regulatory and licensing requirements
