About the Role

We have an exciting opportunity to join our fresh-faced Legal and Compliance team as a Senior Compliance Partner, closely aligning with our Financial Crime Operational (FCO) teams. This position will see you play a large role in the transformational uplift on our compliance culture, building out frameworks to enhance capability and compliance maturity - very exciting and very rewarding!

Responsible for providing independent review, advice and challenge of initiatives, issues, incidents etc in the Financial Crime Operations function (FCO) to ensure they comply with financial crime compliance obligations, you will be the go-to for all initiatives, issues, and incidents with a Financial Crime lens, ensuring they comply with financial services obligations, as well as ensuring all conduct risks are managed accordingly.

Here at BOQ Group we like to call ourselves the digital bank of the future and let’s be honest, Financial Crime and Compliance really is where all the cool stuff is happening! We are a muti-branded business, with our most recent acquisition being the fabulous ME Bank, which makes this role even more juicy – there is so much opportunity to contribute to the overarching Risk and Compliance Framework and be paramount in supporting the build of our digital bank, from a Financial Crime Risk perceptive.

This role will require a dedicated, inquisitive individual who is dedicated to building strong relationships with the ability to deep-dive to really understand what the business division does, to offer first class compliance advice. With your strong knowledge of risk and control methodologies, along with exposure to control design, testing and effectiveness you’ll be able to appropriately balance risk and the needs of our customers.

You will also be joining a super-collaborative passionate team, who work hard, but love to have fun along the way!

About you

With your essential experience coming from a Financial or Banking institute, you understand the importance of working within a highly regulated industry – bringing detailed knowledge and understanding of financial services obligations specifically around Financial Crime Compliance Obligations, including the AML/CTF Act, Annual Control Self-Assessment (CSA), AUSTRAC guidance, as well as internal financial crime compliance frameworks, policies and industry practice.

With your sound experience working in and supporting Financial Crime Compliance, your understanding of financial and banking products and services will enable you to pinpoint areas requiring further analysis and attention, ensuring a pragmatic and robust approach to compliance.
