of the UK and Northern Ireland. We are open to members whose workplace is represented by either
The Public and Commercial Services Union (PCS) or The Communication Workers Union (CWU), and
their families.

We are a not-for-profit financial co-operative, owned and run by our members. We serve our

that our vision, mission and values are translated into delivery. We know the difference we make to
our members when they join our financial family, often at some of the most difficult, exciting or
significant times of their lives. More important than your specific industry background or career
journey, is your passion for making a difference to the lives of our members and our colleagues
every day, sharing our strong commitment to co-operative values and principles and making things
happen.

My Community Bank - Deputy Compliance Officer

We are a digital-only not-for-profit lender, offering savings accounts and affordable loans to our members. 

 We have a great opportunity for a talented person with compliance and regulatory experience in financial services to help us on a range of interesting projects. As a key member of the team, this senior post-holder will assist the Head of Compliance in carrying out the day-to-day and strategic regulatory work undertaken by the Compliance Department which reports into the Head of Legal. A key aspect of this role is to assist in evolving the existing compliance framework to ensure we conform to all applicable laws and regulations; and research developments in compliance and regulation that could impact the credit union. 

 The ideal candidate will have experience of regulatory compliance within a recognised financial services institution and be able to demonstrate a strong understanding of regulatory compliance issues within financial services. You may be expected to deputise for the Head of Compliance and so this role requires strong communication skills and an ability to pro-actively support the Head of Legal, who is a member of the Senior Executive Team, and to independently provide compliance advice to our various business units. 

 Our office is currently in the Blackfriars/London Bridge area, and we will move to Canary Wharf from late May (but for the moment we are largely working from home as a result of Covid-19). 

 Overall Responsibilities 

  • Identify and manage regulatory and compliance risk in all areas of the business, also acting as Deputy Data Protection Officer and Deputy Money Laundering Reporting Officer 
  • Support the Heads of Compliance and Legal in advising the business on regulatory and compliance matters 
  • Present to senior audiences (e.g. to Audit and Risk Committee) on compliance issues. 
  • Managing strategic projects in the compliance space. 
  • Responsibility for horizon scanning of new developments in financial services regulation, assessing the impact of such on the business and implementing change where necessary. 
  • Other ad hoc duties, e.g. investigation of suspected financial crime; liaising with external bodies; data subject access request management.  
  • Review of complaint framework and responses drafted by the first line business functions; plus ownership of any complaints made to the Financial Ombudsman. 
  • Some corporate secretariat work (<5% of time) writing company board minutes; ensuring accurate investor certificates are issued etc. 

 Essential Requirements 

  • A demonstrated understanding of banking, credit unions or financial services. 
  • Strong working knowledge of regulations in the financial services industry and market practice of financial services providers in implementing such regulations. 
  • Experience in implementing regulations and carrying out day-to-day compliance tasks. 
  • Minute taking experience – whilst not a large part of the role, it is important that accurate minutes are maintained of the company board meetings. 
  • Excellent communication and people skills 

 Desirable

 A law degree or prior exposure to legal research would be a distinct advantage. 

 Person Specification 

  • Strong team player as our culture is one of collaborative working
  • Strong interpersonal skills and good communication skills who can provide diplomacy and tact in delivering advice to stakeholders
  • High level of integrity and dependability 
  • Ability to work independently, although a reasonable level of supervision will be provided. Able to make and implement crucial recommendations in respect of regulatory compliance
  • High level of written and oral communications skills 
  • Willingness to ‘pitch in’ to get the job done 

 Reporting 

You will report into the Head of Compliance who reports into the Head of Legal. Therefore you will also have a dotted reporting line into the Head of Legal.  

 Salary

£30k-£40k
