Regtech - Head of compliance regulations & operations
My Client is a reg tech firm that provides a piece of software that interprets regulations and directs it to the relevant compliance entity for their financial services clients.
The business is based in central London with a small young team of 20 people.
The company has been running for 10 years but this specific technology has been around for 3 years.
Their clients are primarily Financial services. Multinational banks who would usually work with the likes of Thompson Reuters go to this firm for a more tailored approach to regulations like Mifid, PSD2. They don't give advice but are more technical experts.
This person will face off against clients who will be compliance officers. This person needs to be able to talk about regulation in generalist terms. A good level of communication skills is necessary. The main aspect of the role will be to work with the technical analysts to reduce the error rate of the software. You will need to analyse why certain regulations aren't being picked up by the system and work with the technical team to rectify this.
This role would suit someone from a consultancy background who has a good generalist compliance understanding. Also as this is a regtech firm you need to be agile and able to work in a smaller environment. Someone who has worked in change management will also be very suitable.
If you are a bright aspirational financial services compliance specialist looking for a small company with no bureaucracy that has doubled in size for the last 4 years, please apply.
Salary is between GBP55,000 - GBP65,000 for the right person.
