AML Reporting Officer – Brussels

Now is an exciting time to join us at TransferWise. We are opening an office in Brussels and our fast-growing and international AML team is looking for a skilful and passionate AML Reporting Officer. If you are passionate about finding out things - this is a job for you! We have a lot of excitement in our work, but of course there’s some routine stuff that needs to be done.

Your mission:

  • Prepare and submit suspicious activity reports to the CTIF-CFI;
  • Independently conduct searches, gather data and record evidence from internal systems, the internet, commercial databases and enquiry with customers;
  • Independently research and resolve issues while working across teams to acquire information;
  • Work closely with our teams in Tallinn and Budapest in order to make sure that the reporting of suspicious activity is done in line with the CTIF-CFI guidelines and regulatory requirements;
  • Act as the point of contact with the CTIF-CFI and local law enforcement agencies;
  • Prepare reports about STRs addressed to the AMLCO and used for the Board update.

This role will give you the opportunity to:

  • Develop an in-depth knowledge of TransferWise’s customers and products and how we are achieving Money Without Borders.
  • Help keep our product safe from the bad guys.
  • Choose your own path to success - you’ll be the first AML Reporting Officer in our Belgian entity and you’ll have the freedom to define the vision and the responsibility for making it happen.
  • Play a role in helping the Belgian authorities to protect customers, beyond just TransferWise.

A bit about you:

  • Experience in AML field, preferably in investigating suspicious activity (previous experience in working with the CTIF-CFI is a plus);
  • Curious mind and internal desire to find out stuff;
  • Analytical skills and familiarity with analytical tools (e.g. Looker);
  • Ability to multi-task and take responsibility in challenging situations;
  • Strong attention to detail;
  • Fluency in French and English (Dutch is a plus);
  • Excellent written English skills;
  • Experience with investigative techniques and report writing;
  • Great communication skills;
  • Flexibility to travel to Tallinn and Budapest approximately 1 week every other month (but sometimes more).
  • Legally authorized to work in Belgium. Sadly we cannot support visas for this role.

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.
