We have a new Compliance Officer opportunity with a leading firm in the fund management space. This is a newly created opportunity reporting into the General Counsel. The firm operates globally with six offices worldwide and this role will cover non-US compliance.

The role itself will very much be generalist and cover SYSC, MLRO reports, MiFID II, updating the compliance manual and continually developing and upgrading the firm's compliance infrastructure. There is a Compliance Analyst in the team who would take on the more administrative tasks. It is expected that the role will grow in responsibility and could become a 'head of' role in a number of years - there will no expectation to take on CF10/CF11 during your first couple of years in the role.

The ideal candidate will buy-side compliance experience although this is not a pre-requisite, the General Counsel is happy to consider candidates from a variety of compliance backgrounds. Salary £60k-£70k plus bonus, benefits. CV and enquiries to James Willacy at Austin Andrew. j.willacy@austinandrew.co.uk
