Job Introduction

The Financial Crime Fraud Response Analyst sits within Fraud and Anti-Bribery & Corruption and reports directly to the Financial Crime Card or Non-Card Fraud Team Leader depending on role

The role is to work within a team of fraud specialists who respond to, and investigate fraud incidents affecting our customers and drive the Bank's fraud prevention strategy.

The role holder may be allocated work covering either card fraud or non-card fraud. Although broadly similar in scope, these two areas do have certain elements that are unique to them and as such some of the Key Activities listed below may only apply to that area of work.

Key actions include incident investigation, time critical funds recovery, undertaking measures to protect customers, collation of evidence and the provision of threat specific advice to both internal stakeholders (branches, colleagues) and external agencies (law enforcement, financial institutions). Monitoring and reviewing certain payments that are at an increased risk of fraud. In addition to responding to individual customer fraud incidents the team is also responsible for supporting the introduction and review of processes and procedures across the Bank, taking a balanced view of fraud threats against the Bank's commitment to provide great service to customers.

The team work closely with other departments across Financial Crime and Head Office Functions by providing first line advice and guidance from a financial crime perspective to both internal (branches, colleagues) and external (law enforcement agencies, financial institutions) stakeholders ensuring the Bank complies with all applicable laws and regulations.

Main Responsibilities
  • Undertake all immediate responses in order to secure funds at risk and/or minimise further losses and when appropriate facilitate repatriation of funds to customers and protect bank related products (cards, accounts etc.)
  • Undertake complex and detailed investigation into the root cause of fraud cases.
  • Make clear decisions, with strong supporting rationale, on complex fraud cases ensuring a fair outcome to customers based on current legislation, regulation and benchmarking with the bank and wider financial industry.
  • Occasionally provide assistance to branch colleagues, by undertaking intervention meetings with customers in order to minimise risk and loss to their accounts during suspected high value fraud cases.
  • Review of certain outgoing payments to ensure that risk to customers remains low.
  • Support the development and review of fraud prevention instructions, controls and processes.

  • Work as part of the team to ensure the day to day activities are adequately prioritised to suit shifting demands.
  • Work independently and manage cases that require extremely high levels of discretion.
  • Work to tight deadlines and often under pressure whilst maintaining a high level of quality and competency.
  • Carry out ad-hoc requests to assist with fraud and other financial crime related investigations etc. where required.
  • Have flexibility to work shifts/various start times in order to provide coverage outside of core hours.

  • Strong analytical and problem solving skills and attention to detail, presenting information in a clear and concise manner.
  • Strong understanding of the fraud threat landscape, the UK's anti-fraud framework, banking products and the UK regulatory environment.
  • Relevant professional qualification preferred (e.g. ICA Certificate in Fraud Prevention, ACAMs, and APCIP etc.)
