This boutique broking house is one of the most exciting entrants to the London insurance market in recent years.
Operating in several niche areas within the City’s financial services arena for over a decade, it has built up a longstanding and loyal client base. This firm’s clear focus on delivering the highest levels of client service has seen it deliver tremendous growth over the past year, and it has recently expanded its operations to include new offices across Europe and the Gulf.
In order to cater for the diverse range of client requiremehts, the decision to expand its professional services offering was the brainchild of its highly entrepreneurial CEO. The most recent phase in this business plan is the implementation of an insurance intermediary. With board level support and significant (in-house) financial backing, this fledgling insurance broking business is already proving to be a force to be reckoned with. It has made multiple high-profile appointments, and has started to establish its impressive client portfolio in its own right.
As Compliance Officer, you will report to the Group Compliance Director and effectively take the lead on all regulatory matters within the insurance broking side of the business. This role is recognised as the next key hire within the broking house.
As the most senior Compliance Officer within the insurance broking business, you will be responsible for completing full audits on the team’s files, preparing reports for the Board, signing off financial promotions, and carrying out the screening of potential introducers. You will also handle any complaints in a timely fashion, complying with both FCA regulations and in-house protocols. In addition, you will contribute to the business by observing occasional client meetings and providing structured feedback on colleagues’ work.
It is essential that you are from an insurance compliance background and possess an expert level of knowledge of Anti Money Laundering, ICOBS and Consumer Credit rules. You will also be expected to be au fait with FCA regulations, JMLSG guidance notes, GDPR, TCF and their implications upon business activities.
For the ambitious, this role offers fantastic opportunities for progression as the business develops and, as a newly-created position, the chance to really ‘make the job your own’. You will also receive a competitive and completely negotiable basic salary, alongside a bonus (based on both personal and company performance), and a comprehensive array of benefits.
