Leading corporate bank is currently on a journey to rebuild a bank that is safe and sustainable. By undergoing programme work within the regulatory risk function my client is proactively de-risking the business. This is an exciting time to join the risk management function because the function has 100% backing from the CEO and to date the group has made significant progress and delivered on all commitments to reduce risk. However, there remains much to do and they require a number of interim compliance managers to fulfil generalist compliance responsibilities.

Responsibilities:

-Your primary role will be to identify regulatory risks within the compliance division of the corporate bank.
-Managing key stakeholder relationships at Senior Management level
-Provide timely and accurate written and/or verbal guidance in relation to compliance matters for the businesses set out above, consulting and liaising with the Senior Compliance Manager, senior and executive business management as necessary.
-Assess new products, process and organisational changes in the above businesses to evaluate and advise upon the potential or actual compliance impact.
-Prepare the businesses for new financial services regulation, to help to ensure that they comply by the time of its implementation.
-Analyse relevant compliance indicators, eg in connection with the FSA's Treating Customers Fairly initiative, to assess performance and behaviour, drawing conclusions regarding, and querying, where necessary, identified trends.
-Design and deliver training presentations in the businesses to increase awareness of compliance issues.
-Help to support executive and senior management through regulatory visits, such as the FSA's ARROW programme.
-Implement and maintain an assurance framework to ensure that the businesses comply with all compliance-related Group policies.
-Provide compliance input and direction to senior management, Risk and relevant divisional and Group committees in relation to the businesses.
-Attend business boards and committees where appropriate.

Person Specification:
