Closing Date 09-Jun-2022

Are you passionate about anti-money laundering solution systems? Do you flourish working with complex data? Can you provide technical support to your colleagues to stop financial crime? If yes, then we may have the role for you!

The need to protect Metro Bank and our customers from the impact of money laundering and terrorist financing has never been greater or more challenging. As an AML Systems Analyst you will be a technical Subject Matter Expert for all aspects of customer screening, payment screening and transaction monitoring. You will work closely with AML Specialists and Investigators and the AML management team, making sure that all our regulatory obligations are met and that Financial Crime teams are able to manage risks effectively with efficient processes.

Most of our jobs offer the opportunity for hybrid working. Ask your recruiter for more details.

So what would you be doing?...

• Being a Subject Matter Expert in the Bank’s AML solution - BAE NetReveal
• Through in-depth analysis, ensuring that our technology, including BAE NetReveal, is effectively managing the Bank’s money laundering, terrorist financing and sanctions risks across customer screening, payment screening and transaction monitoring
• Supporting the Head of Financial Crime Technology, ensuring the correct balance between operational efficiency and risk appetite 
• Obtaining feedback from colleagues and BAE to optimise performance of NetReveal
• Dealing with bump ups for technical issues raised by colleagues and working with key stakeholders to recommend appropriate action
• Responding to general Financial Crime enquiries from across the Bank relating to Managed Systems 
• Developing and managing a suite of weekly and monthly MI required to manage activity across the team and demonstrate effective screening and monitoring

You need to be this kind of person…

• Passionate about providing unparalleled levels of service and convenience for customers
• Able to work and learn quickly in a fast paced, fun and dynamic environment
• Prepared to stick at something – we get nervous if someone has jumped from job to job as we want people who are prepared to learn and grow
• Care about doing a great job and exceeding expectations with the quality of what you do

And... we are a bank so risk is a part of everything we do. We love people who take responsibility, do the right thing for customers, colleagues and Metro Bank and have the courage to call out any concerns.

We always support colleagues to develop their skills. But to be successful in this job you really do need to already be able to do most of these wonderful things...

• Understand the risks associated with your job and what that means for you, Metro Bank and all our stakeholders
• In order to hit the ground running, you will have experience in screening and transaction monitoring systems (for example BAE NetReveal)
• It is key that you have a good understanding of the money laundering, terrorist financing and sanctions threats and risks across financial institutions 
• We need you to be familiar with constructing structured query language (SQL) queries and analysing complex data sets
• Naturally, you will have extensive knowledge of the regulatory requirements for customer screening, payment screening and transaction monitoring 
• You need to have experience of writing, implementing and tuning transaction monitoring rules based on in-depth transactional analysis
• To be successful in this role, you will display great stakeholder management skills, with the confidence to approach people at all levels of seniority 

Important Footnote Diverse teams really are the best teams. We know that candidates (especially women, research tells us) may be put off applying for a job unless they can tick every box.  We also know that ‘normal’ office hours aren’t always doable, and while we can’t accommodate every flexible working request we are happy to be asked.  So if you are excited about working with us and think you can do much of what we are looking for but aren’t sure if you are 100% there yet… why not give it a whirl? Please note that sometimes we may close a job earlier for applications if we are inundated with amazing candidates.. Good luck!
