  • Have previously held the SMF16 and SMF 17 roles or have the relevant experience to take that step up.
  • Operational knowledge and hands-on experience in running a sound compliance and AML programme.
  • You will have an understanding of our industry’s regulatory requirements (ideally including crypto and custody) in both the UK and EU, as well as international sanctions.
  • You are a team player, open-minded, organised, resilient, reliable, and committed.
  • You will have great communication skills and collaborate effectively with your European colleagues, with senior management and with third-party stakeholders.
