Do you have strong data analysis skills and are comfortable dealing with vast amounts of data? Do you have good knowledge of anti-money laundering?

We are looking for an AML Risk Data Analyst to join us on a 12-month fixed term contract.

The role

You will be working in the AML Directorate, which leads our AML supervision of the firms we supervise. In this role, you will review our existing AML risk rating framework and help develop a new risk rating system. The new system will enable us to distil large amounts of relevant data to create an updated risk rating framework. We will use this new system in order to judge the AML risks presented by the firms we supervise and guide our AML supervision work.

You will test usability and accuracy of the model by engaging with colleagues in AML, Research and Analysis and other relevant stakeholders. Analysing and interpreting output of the new model, you will comment on and present the findings in an easy to understand narrative. You will look at future viability of the product and produce support and training guides for colleagues.

You will bring to this role experience of dealing with vast amounts of data and an ability to deal quantitatively and qualitatively with that data. You will also have a good grasp of anti-money laundering and will be able to bring that insight into the role. Legal experience is not required, and we welcome applicants from other sectors or regulators in scope of the AML regulations.

This is an exciting role where you will have plenty of scope to help shape and improve the work of the policy, proactive supervision, and investigations teams in the AML Directorate.

What's in it for you

  • Demonstrable ability to process complex data sets, interpret them and identify and comment on patterns and trends
  • Experience of complex report writing
  • Strong communication skills, with an ability to present findings to stakeholders in an easy to understand way
  • Excellent time management skills with the ability to work to deadlines
