Head of Compliance & MLRO

Looking for your next challenge? How about launching the UK operations of an international payments / EMI firm that is already a Visa Principal Member?

You’ve probably taken your current role as far as you can. And you’re now keen to put everything you’ve learnt to date into practice. And what better than the opportunity to build the Compliance operations for a highly ambitious payments FinTech? From scratch. Now that’s something to get your teeth into!

You’ll be joining a business already recognised across Europe as the experts in everything related to payment cards, who have been helping their customers launch their own Visa cards since 2015. And with a reputation for providing the best customer service in their field.

You’ll oversee the firm’s application for their EMI license with the FCA, working on adapting the group’s Compliance and Financial Crime frameworks to meet the UK’s regulatory requirements. You’ll communicate regularly with the FCA and other authorities during the authorisation process and with banks and key business partners to launch the UK entity.

You’ll provide specialist Compliance advice to the UK CEO and the wider leadership team to help ensure the successful launch of the UK business and its subsequent scale-up and development. You’ll build out a small, high-performing Compliance and Financial Crime team, providing skilled leadership, coaching and motivation to ensure all reach their full potential.

You’ll have strong Compliance experience within a Payments or EMI firm, and it would be great if you’re also an experienced MLRO. We’re interested in speaking to proven Heads of Compliance as well as exceptional individuals looking to make the step up.

You’ll need to have broad, generalist Compliance experience and will have a proven track record of designing and implementing Compliance frameworks, policies and procedures. Any international experience would be advantageous, as would experience of EM license applications.

Interested? If so, click apply and send over your CV.

Not got an up to date CV? Don’t worry, you can always give me (Mark) a call on 0121 274 0357 for a confidential discussion or email me at [email protected] telling me that you’re interested. We’ll pick it up from there.
