At Wise we believe that the people closest to risks are best placed to identify and address these. We are looking for an experienced Financial Crime professional to join Wise’s mission, who will get close to the Suspicious Activity Reporting process and maintain oversight of the investigation process and its output.

Your mission:

  • Coach and mentor the first line reporting team to apply best practices
  • Act as final point of approval for all SARs before they are submitted to CTIF
  • Support the AMLCO and FinCrime Oversight Specialists on enquiries and projects relating to reporting to the FIU
  • Create an independent oversight reporting logic that  keeps the AMLCO and the responsible leaders of Wise EU fully informed of current and emerging Financial Crime risks as they are reflected in reporting to the FIU
  • Provide feedback to the first line AML investigations and reporting teams on how to effectively adapt their controls to address EU specific Financial Crime risks

This role will give you the opportunity to:

  • ​​Choose your own path to success – this is a newly created role and the first that is solely responsible for deep diving into the world of SAR oversight
  • Collaborate with bright Financial Crime Compliance people across the globe – making an impact not just in Europe but across the globe
  • Build a small but mighty team that supports you to continuously achieve your objectives.
  • Learn and develop tremendously both technical compliance and personal skills.

A bit about you:

We are looking for someone that’s passionate about financial crime, fintech and building an incredible product that changes the financial lives of customers across the globe. You should have:

  • Experience in working with CTIF, the Belgian FIU
  • An excellent storyteller that helps our investigations come to life and supports the FIU in their fight against crime
  • Comfortable with data and metrics, so that creating measurable SAR metrics will come as second nature

We’re people without borders — without judgement or prejudice, too. We want to work with the best people, no matter their background. So if you’re passionate about learning new things and keen to join our mission, you’ll fit right in.

Also, qualifications aren’t that important to us. If you’ve got great experience, and you’re great at articulating your thinking, we’d like to hear from you. And because we believe that diverse teams build better products, we’d especially love to hear from you if you’re from an under-represented demographic.
