MPA Recruitment has been appointed by a leading Financial Services firm in Belfast to source a Compliance Director as a key figure within the Group’s Compliance function. You will support the successful execution of the Group's business strategy through the delivery of an integrated compliance culture and programme across the Group.

You will be responsible for promoting and supporting an effective Risk & Compliance culture across several units within the Group. This involves regularly re-emphasizing the importance of maintaining a vigilant and cautious approach to ensure compliance with applicable rules and regulations, as well as the Group’s Policy and risk appetite statements.

You will identify, monitor and report regulatory risk within the business; ensure applicable Compliance policies and procedures are kept up to date for changes in regulations and in regulatory expectations; and keep in close contact with the business and senior management to identify and advise on any risk and compliance issues. You will assist the operational areas to identify and embed key compliance related controls, including policies and procedures.

You will report to the Board, Group Risk and other relevant stakeholders on a periodic basis and advising them of key regulatory risks emerging within the business in a formal context through the production of Management Information ("M.I."), Key Risk Indicators ("KRI") or other standard reports.

You will have extensive compliance experience within an international Financial Services environment. You will be knowledgeable in enhanced due diligence around PEP and High Risk relationships; as well as experienced in Financial Crime related matters, including regulatory developments, AML/CTF risk management and governance, Sanctions, Anti-Bribery & Corruption, and responding to client-specific enquiries and transaction specific incidents.

As this role will have management responsibility with direct reports in multiple locations, there will be occasional travel to other Group offices in Europe. You will receive a competitive salary and benefits package reflective of your experience.

I am keen to have an initial discussion with anyone who feels this could potentially be of interest. Please contact Mark Canning, Business Manager at MPA Recruitment on 028 7136 0070 or send an up to date CV via the link provided to speak further about this opportunity.

All conversations will be treated in the strictest of confidence.
