experienced Swedish Compliance Officer
FULL-TIME, PERMANENT - 3 - 6 months in bournemouth, uk
Competitive Salary + Bonus
We’re looking for an experienced professional who has previously worked in compliance / operations for a Swedish lending company to join our team.
This role will involve spending 3 - 6 months at our awesome uk headquarters before relocating to a swedish office.
We require a candidate with experience working under or alongside the Swedish FSA. Knowledge / experience of consumer credit regulation, AML, implementing regulatory changes, internal auditing or anything similar would benefit your application.
We’ll offer you the opportunity to work in our UK office, plus plenty of other awesome perks - as long as you’re ready to get stuck in and help us expand our exciting Nordic startup!
What will you be doing?
In our fast-growing business, you’ll initially be tasked with helping us register with the FSA as a Consumer Credit Institute. You will take a lead role in the compliance of our multi-national Nordic consumer finance business, ensuring that we are up-to-date with relevant legislations.
Our quickly expanding business will need a manager to take the reins of the Sweden Launch (running the whole operation from Sweden) within a year. Alternatively, this position could be compliance / audit focused - we’ll need someone to fill that role as we quickly expand over several Nordic countries.
Whilst we’re really looking for someone who has already advanced up the career ladder in the consumer finance industry, it’s equally important that you can find out how to solve problems you’ve never encountered before.
Who we are:
We are both a startup and a £1 billion success story.
We have the fun, energy, drive and determination of a start-up, but are also part of an organisation that has created more than 10 multi-million pound companies in the past 20 years.
As a group we believe that you have to really care about what you do in order to do it well. We believe in teamwork, ownership and promote a culture of collaboration, work hard, work smart and play hard.
Things we think you will need:
Attention to detail
Excellent written communication skills
A curious nature
The ability to work out a problem as you go
A healthy disregard for the impossible
We are looking for people who are frustrated by the status quo and are desperate for an opportunity to prove themselves in an exciting, fast-growing business.
This is a hard job - it’s swim quick or sink. If you think you are smarter than average, able to adapt quickly and you know you can make our team better than it is without you - then this might be for you
What we can offer you:
We believe that this is very much a two way street. So we offer you some pretty awesome stuff in exchange.
Firstly - the opportunity to be part of a fast growing business. If you have ever been in a startup type environment in the past, then you will know how diverse and valuable that can be. It’s work hard, play hard!
Secondly, we know that you’ll love working in our offices in the south of England. We’re lucky enough to work in the sunny coastal town of Bournemouth. We can offer you a subsidised onsite cafe and kitchen with restaurant quality lunches, gym memberships, free holiday homes, top of the range IT equipment, parties, flexible working and casual dress code. Sound good?
Thirdly, we think it’s really important that you like working with us before you have to make a big commitment. So, if you are relocating from Sweden we will make it easy for you. We will cover the cost of travel and arrange your accommodation at our expense for the first month to help you get settled.
Is this the job for you?
The most important thing for us is to build the right team. That means we are even more interested in who you are and how you think than we are in your past work.
If you are looking for something you can immerse yourself in, experience incredible highs (and inevitable lows) - something where you have the opportunity to really move the needle and be part of building a business - then we want to talk to you.
Remember - we often receive hundreds of applications for the jobs we advertise. How will yours stand out?
