Better requires process, discipline, and simplification

We’ll be looking for you to be at the heart of our payment’s compliance division in Portugal. This is an opportunity to lead and develop our risk-based AML compliance programs and shape the compliance function. You will play a critical role in developing, implementing and enforcing policies, procedures, and programs to minimise potential money laundering risks. You will steer the compliance strategy and champion strategic initiatives as you influence others to successfully deliver on them. You will be the voice of the customer and use this to develop and manage steps to improve effectiveness. You will steer change initiatives as well as designing and developing process improvements. Developing strong on-going relationships with global partners is required as you deliver reports and data to assist senior management.

For such an important role, you will need to have a well-established background in compliance within the financial services industry. You will need to have a deep knowledge of the Portuguese AML and CTF regulations. You will have demonstrated an excellent relationship with the Portuguese regulator and the country authorities and the ability to build relationships with key stakeholders and have influenced them through your career. You must be a strategic thinker and be analytically minded in your approach whilst remaining able to manage change. Previous experience of working autonomously is also desirable.
