A Compliance Monitoring Analyst is required to join our busy Compliance team. This is a varied and challenging role which will require the individual to:

  • Manage an annual schedule of Compliance and Data Protection monitoring activity, ensuring reviews requested by the Head of Compliance are planned and tracked appropriately throughout the year;
  • Independently conduct desk-based analysis of mortgage advice, complaints, savings and Data Protection-related files to assess compliance with policies and regulation and check that our customers are receiving fair outcomes;
  • Produce written reports and recommendations following reviews undertaken, for discussion with Management across the Society;
  • Complete weekly ‘horizon scanning’ of regulators’ websites to identify new regulatory developments that may affect the Society;
  • Perform quality checking of regulatory reports and returns submitted to the Compliance team for review and signoff;
  • Track and monitor the completion of management actions following Internal Audit activity, escalating issues to the Head of Compliance as required; and
  • Support the Head of Compliance with a variety of other regular and ad-hoc tasks as required to ensure the Compliance team operates effectively.
    Skills required for this role:
  • Ability to absorb and understand complex or technical procedures and regulations, then apply this in practice when reviewing files (eg complaints);
  • Proficiency in analysing a wide variety of data and information, identifying any gaps, limitations or trends present, then forming balanced judgments;
  • Ability to explain complex or technical topics in a straightforward manner, precisely and accurately, whether verbally or in writing;
  • Ability to produce concise, structured and professionally-presented reports with a tone and style appropriate for senior audiences;
  • Proficiency in planning activities up to several months ahead, arranging tasks in a logical, efficient order while balancing different stakeholders’ needs;
  • Capacity to juggle a broad and varied workload from day to day, keeping longer-term activities moving while dispatching shorter tasks efficiently;
  • Ability to complete regular or routine tasks carefully and accurately, on time and every time, with good concentration and attention to detail;
  • Strong focus on the customer, with a good understanding of key risks to customers in financial services  (for example, the risk of mis-selling); and
  • Strong focus on continuous improvement, challenging oneself and others to overcome problems and find better ways of working. 

A higher education qualification (e.g. a degree) and a UK mortgage advice qualification (eg CeMAP) are both essential.
A good working knowledge of retail financial services, UK mortgage regulation and risk management practices are essential, together with at least three years’ previous experience of working in a Bank or Building Society.  Experience of working in an oversight, quality assurance or internal audit-type role would be desirable.
