About the team

The Financial Crime Operations department is at the forefront of Revolut’s efforts to keep customers and their money safe. Working directly with customers to resolve issues and flag potential concerns and using cutting edge technology, we aim to prevent financial crime more effectively than traditional banks.

We operate in small, nimble teams that are built for scale, speed, and quality. Each unit is responsible for a different pillar of fincrime, giving you the chance to have a real impact on crucial problems that affect millions of people around the world.

About the role

Screening team is responsible for preventing any individuals or entities involved in financial crime, as well as sanctioned or terrorism-related entities, from using our product. This includes not only meticulous research and investigation into our users (personal and business), but also transactions flowing through our system. Additionally, we are obliged to identify whether any politically related individuals are among our clients, as they represent a higher risk of financial crimes like corruption, fraud crimes, and money laundering- therefore, the activity on their accounts has to be closely monitored. Basically, we are checking if any user or transaction is dangerous or risky for Revolut.

Every day we review thousands of accounts and payments- it requires a lot of analytical skills and logical thinking. In order to avoid making mistakes, we must stay focused and treat each case individually.

What you will be doing:

  • Conduct reviews of sanctions watchlist alerts generated by the automated transaction filtering and client screening systems, manual reports or internal referrals. Document investigation steps performed and document the rationale for decisions
  • Escalate potential sanctions issues or suspicious activity to the Head of Compliance or Money Laundering Reporting Officer
  • Review and investigate PEP screening alerts utilizing the client screening system, internal Customer Due Diligence systems and third party sources.
  • Assist with the validation of the Sanctions and PEP alert systems and participate in any testing of new releases or updates of current systems as necessary.
  • Train and mentor other new joiners on the team when qualified.
  • Assist the Compliance Team Leaders, other teams and Senior Management with ad hoc projects.
  • Respond and remediate issues identified by the Quality Control Team.
  • Comply with rules and regulations, including without limitation, AML and OFAC/Sanctions requirements all internal policies, procedures and guidelines.
  • Identify and analyze alerts generated by the screening system in order to identify politically related individuals, entities involved in financial crime, as well as sanctioned or terrorism-related entities.
  • Daily basis monitoring and reviewing of transfers, companies, business and individual profiles in order to identify unusual and suspicious activity.
  • Handle sensitive or confidential information.

Our mission now is to help our customers improve their financial health, empower them to have more control, and promote financial cohesion across the communities in which we operate. Launching into 2020 with 10 million Personal customers and over a quarter of a million Business customers only reinforced our belief in the vast need across the world for better financial services.
