Jersey is a world leading international finance centre. We are regarded internationally as a well-regulated jurisdiction committed to the global fight against financial crime. As an Island we have over £1.3 trillion of assets under management. In unison with the Economic Crime and Confiscation Unit (ECCU) at the Law Officers’ Department in Jersey, law enforcement agencies, competent authorities and Finance Intelligence Units nationally and internationally by receiving, analysing and disseminating financial intelligence from numerous sources, Jersey FIU is a pivotal component in protecting Jersey’s reputation in combatting financial crime.
Do you have an eye for detail and an interest in leading a team?
The Financial Intelligence Unit is strengthening and expanding and is seeking a team member to lead the day-to-day operations. This is a role that is wide in scope; the diversity of activities will span from strategy and policy advice, preparing the annual report to leading on complex intelligence matters. Working in unison with the Director of JFIU, you will represent the unit at external committees, forums and steering groups, driving forward the strategies to combat international financial crime both domestically and internationally.
What your day looks like
With a team of 24 across 3 units, you will supervise the teams, enjoy coaching and sharing your knowledge and will be responsible for management reporting. The role will ensure that the JFIU remains effective in fulfilling its core functions as a Financial Intelligence Unit for a modern International Financial Centre like Jersey. This will involve working on implementing standards set for Anti-Money Laundering (AML) and Counter Terrorist Financing (CFT) as set out by the Financial Action Task Force (FATF), consideration and working on the ongoing process of National Risk Assessment (NRA) of Money Laundering (ML) and Terrorist Financing (TF) and consideration of Egmont Charter principles.
Your interests and strengths
An established professional familiar with the modern financial services regulatory regime, this role provides the opportunity to lead the team that consider financial intelligence for Jersey. For someone interested in the criminal side of the financial services industry, you will take pride in being at the helm of protecting the Island’s reputation as a leading international finance centre. A public facing function, you will enjoy leading forums and committees and to accommodate the diversity of the opportunity, be equally happy undertaking analysis to prepare reports that demonstrate the activity of the function.
