Regulatory Compliance Specialist – London or Tallinn

Since 2011, we’ve had a clear mission: money without borders. Built by and for people who live global lives, we’re the fairest, easiest way to manage your money across borders.

We’re just at the beginning of our story and we’re growing at an incredible pace. We won’t stop until anyone, anywhere can send, spend and receive money wherever they are, whatever they’re doing. There’s still heaps to do and we can’t do it alone.

We’re looking for a Regulatory Compliance Specialist to strengthen our European compliance team (based either in London, UK or Tallinn, Estonia). As Regulatory Compliance Specialist you’ll be responsible for designing, implementing and managing systems and processes to support our compliance function. You’ll help manage and strengthen the team’s relationships with regulators by being the first point of contact who keeps everybody informed.

Your mission:

  • Day-to-day management of European regulatory compliance matters: managing and coordinating regular reporting schedule, responding to information requests, proactively communicating product changes and notifiable events;
  • Assist with preparation of compliance reports to management and the board;
  • Take ownership of our regulatory compliance documentation, policies and procedures;
  • Develop systems to track and monitor our compliance with regulatory requirements and internal policies;
  • Work with product teams to educate them about regulatory requirements, and support documentation of decision-making and risk assessments within teams;
  • Provide compliance input to product teams on operational process changes and improvements;
  • Work with our customer support teams on building a knowledge base of compliance topics.

This role will give you the opportunity to:

  • Develop an in-depth knowledge of TransferWise’s business and get to know many teams across the company as you liaise with them to help them understand the regulatory framework and bring together the information that our regulators need.
  • Help keep compliance right at the heart of our product developments and new initiatives by horizon-scanning for new regulatory developments and sharing these with the teams.
  • Choose your own path to success - you’ll be the first Compliance employee to be primarily responsible for managing our relationship with regulators and you’ll have the freedom to define the vision and the responsibility for making it happen.

A bit about you:

If you have a background in payments or other financial regulation, great communication and organisational skills, tons of motivation and positivity, then this role could be perfect for you!

  • Previous work experience in the compliance/risk sector;
  • Experience of working with regulators or similar bodies;
  • Understanding of UK and European regulatory requirements;
  • Ability to multi-task and take responsibility in challenging situations;
  • Independence, pro-activity and willingness to get things done;
  • Excellent organisational, communication and cross-team cooperation skills;
  • Proven track record of taking individual ownership and responsibilities as well as being a great team-player.

Some important stuff we would like you to know

To meet our regulatory obligations as a licensed financial services company, TransferWise needs to take background checks on all new hires, which may include Criminal and Credit checks. Please discuss with the Recruiter if you have any concerns regarding this process.

At TransferWise we believe in fostering a diverse and inclusive workplace. Therefore, we want to make sure that our recruitment process is accessible to everyone. So if you need any reasonable adjustments – at any point in the process – we’ll do our best to help. Just let us know what you need on your application form or reply with your request to the email we send you after you have applied. You might need a reasonable adjustment if you’ve got a disability. Or maybe you live overseas, and you’d prefer to meet us over Skype.

Please don’t send anything to the adjustments address if you’re a recruiter, or if you’re making a speculative application. We do work with recruiters from time to time – but only through LinkedIn. And we only accept job applications when a position is actually open. So you’re better off just checking the recruitment pages regularly.
